    Will do! Already ordered a cover, floorboards and hard saddlebags for it and I don't even have it yet! Probably a Russell seat will be next to really ugly it up.

    I am not in the market for a small cruiser. But I was, this motor must be more fun than some others in the class I think.

    spinning up a motor that revs has always been fun to me. Nice to have a p twin revier option than a small v that doesn't.

    Always wondered why Suzuki didn't use the 650 v in a small cruiser rather than a portlier lump.

    That's what I figure. I'd rather be able to ride for hours than look at it for hours. I really don't give a shit how it looks. Russell does make a sport seat that looks nicer but I'd probably go full comfort.

    Hard to go wrong with any bike that uses that engine, Versys, ER6/Ninja, Vulcan. All make good power exactly where you need it for normal riding.
