I just put 50 miles on her. I've got to go pick up my son from school and he will be with me for the next five days so the bike will have to sit.



It's 85 degrees here and I'm cruising down the beach on a 03 Glide with Bob Marley pumping through the speakers. I told admirers that Harley's don't smoke, that was a big bong hit exhaling through the pipes!

If you want an unfaired big bore bike and you still want a Suzuki, have you considered the Bandit 1200? I must admit a personal bias for Bandits (mine's a 600S), and although I personally think they look sexy, hopefully the local thieves won't...

I have definitely considered the 1200 bandits. I was pretty hot after getting one for a while. Unfortunately, most dealers have a hard time selling them so the majority of the bikes in shops are the ones built in 2001 or earlier (including the 2002 model year bikes). The reason this is so bad is that the 1200 bandits made at that time have a pretty good chance of containing faulty pistons. This has caused many many bikes to burn oil at a rate of a quart every 600-1000 miles. On top of that Suzuki is very reluctant to fix this under warranty and claims that a quart per 1000 miles is within specifications. I don't know about you, but if I wanted a new bike that used oil like that then I'd buy a Harley

It is like choosing the ugliest woman to make sure nobody wants her eh? RonXX you need to get out more and get a BIG lock for your bike and a chastity belt for your wife

It's a pretty small percentage of Bandit's that burn oil, My '01 1200s doesn't, and I was under the impression that Suzuki was stepping up on the ones that did smoke, bad publicity and all, I guess. Personnaly I find the SV1000 S and nekkids to be less than I had hoped for, If you want a 1000 twin Suzuki, the V-Strom would be my choice, but still after 23k. on my Bandito I would buy another one in a heartbeat, maybe a nekkid this time, when your talkin' bang for buck do it all bikes you can't beat a Bandit.

Best of all possible worlds is finding the woman that you think is beautiful, who is the best f#ck you ever had, but that the other guys think is ugly!

And the FZ1 and ZRX are NOT sexy? I'd guess the thieves would find them at least as desirable as the faired SV1000.
