Suzuki really does have a good line up though, with these Boulevard series cruisers, the Bandits, V-Stroms and Boost King and GSX1400 we can't get plus the GSXR's and Hayabusa.. I think they do pretty dam* for what is the smallest Japanese M/C manufacturer. Not to mention their own cars and rebadged Chevys.

They've always been my favorite of the Japanese bikes, why I remember back when I was but a Tad getting roosted by Roger DeCoster and Joel Robert on Factory Suzukis watching the Trans-Am at Puyallup Raceway Park. One time when we were visiting relitives in England me and my dad went to Oulton Park outside of Liverpool and watched Barry Sheene and Agostini battle it out, Bazza's Suzuki screamin' by..the smell of Castrol R in the air...my ears rang for hours afterwards. What a time to be a kid living and breathing motorcycles...

So..anyway..the Boulevards a cool bike, they'll probably sell a boat load of them..

The snout on this one and the M109 always remind me of Jimmy Durante.

Some nice memories, SarnaliII..... do you mind uploading them to my USB stick?
As much as I envy you, still got lucky enough to see the last season of 500 GP two strokes and no-traction-control 990's 4-strokes first hand.

Share your feelings on suzuki, still am a big Air-Oil cooled GSXR fan, best looking engines ever. Shame that they never won much on track other than in endurance racing.

You're right Yossef, I was lucky to be the son of an absolute motorcycle fanatic, he never missed an opportunity to watch or participate and he was kind enough to drag me along with him from early childhood.

I hope that isn't the type of advice you give your visiting customers, cuz if it is, that is the type of BS comment that makes me walk right out of a dealership.
