I get slogans..
Ready to race, make life a ride, etc..
Hype the brand and sell.
but did someone at Suzuki drop the ball or perhaps thought, hey, let’s just be honest.
I don’t mind the new red one, reminds my of my old Dr Big I had.
But the cynic in me thinks maybe they thought, hey, let’s just put our warranty caveat right in the slogan.
just seems an odd type of slogan for a big adventure bike.
Shouldn’t a big adventure bike have a picture of the big bike at the top of a mountain on a dirt road,
With a dicky slogan something like , “for the days when you need to beat the wild..” or something naff like that.
2020 keeps confusing me.
So you're keeping your wife for now @nevgriff64 ?
Haha - I need to keep telling her that so she’ll hang onto me.
Jeez, 7 minutes to think up a response....
I saw one in local shop two weeks ago and then talked with a rider and he called it a V Strom.
That was bit of a let down, just differnt body shell on the same thing.
I’m in 4 different conversations at the moment and struggling.
Perspective. I look at KTM and think, I'm not ready to race. I look at the PR7 and think why do they call it an adventure bike but only ever promote it rallying?
One thing I really notice about adventure motorcycling is that there is always an undercurrent of all the performance you can get all the time.
I realise we're a minority but some of us just want to potter around and see the world. That slogan may be aimed at us.
I sort of get it.
I added a new 1250GSA to my DR last year. Worlds apart, but both potter well.
Out of all the fancy new features it has, they missed an honest marketing opportunity with the hill start assist that I now love, more than cruise control or heated grips etc etc.
That should have been marketed as..
Hill start assist, it’s just like an extra leg for those of you with stupid short legs.
It’s awesome, it literally is like having one leg that can touch the ground, as I can only tippy toe one side at a time.
Originally I thought a handbrake on a motorbike how f’king stupid, but now I love it.
I can nearly stop anywhere now.
And some of us want simple, reliable, unstressed, predictable performance without worrying about whether our bash plate can protect the water pump, oil pump, radiator et cetera.
...with a beak.
And no fuel pump or filters - and able to last 30 years without the engine or gearbox having to come apart.
Another thing I often think of when talking about dirt bikes is that once you reach the limit of traction any extra power can't be used.
Still, bench racers are impressed by stats. As always, it's the indian not the arrow.
There... are we fuckin' happy now...?
12. Liter. Fuel. Tank.
I know where that is, I nearly made it there
so your KLIM gear, explore forks, and 75hp on a light bike didn't do it
maybe you should have tried a farm bike
No KLIM gear here, explore forks or 75hp, but a farm bike would have probably safely delivered me on two wheels to the corner instead of a constabulary troop carrier
Going back next year to finish it, you wanna join me?
The Wallabies didn't lose!
They should have won. They looked the better team and their ball handling skills were 'Aussie of old' outstanding. Once Dave Rennie gets them better at holding onto the ball in the collision they will be winning plenty of games. Bledisloe may well be crossing the Tasman after 3 more matches!
