Default Suspension Update

The suspension and brake updates sure do make this bike more appealing.It has always been one of my favourites.The new lights are an improvement.I would like to have one.

Well the Monster sure looks better now. So much for Ugly in all the right places. Guess the Kermit Headlights made the bike for me.

I'm sorry, but I am going to have to respectfully disagree. I think the new headlights look like Speedo swimming goggles -- all buggered, if you ask me. Sometimes, angular works. Not in this case.

Yeah, Dr Pulley, but you're old and crotchety while the S3 is designed to appeal to the young and suicidal.

It screams "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRR-GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!"

With special-emphasis on the "GAH" at the end.

Whatever. It'll still outsell the Z1000 4 to 1.

I always liked the S3. I've just never figured out what I would do with one.
