    The new 2014 Suzuki adventure bike looks interesting...

    But lately, an R1100GS with about $5k of Touratech stuff bolted onto it (11 gallon tank, crash bars, tall seat, low pegs, etc etc etc).

    I don't understand why Honda and now Suzuki feel they have to put a "beak" on a so-called "Adventure" bike...

    Suzuki didn't feel compelled to do it to the older V-Stroms, but now they toss one on. It bugs me when the Marketing Dept. gets too involved in product design. :huh

    If I'm perfectly honest it is the reason I'd buy a Tiger 800 roadie over the XC.

    I loathe the beak. :lol3
