Default Perfect

And here I thought that Jap bikes were perfect, at least that is what most on this board try to get others to believe. Regardless, this should make anyone who owns one of these bikes and has a paint scratch or dent in their tank very happy.

Suzuki has always been my favorite of the Japanese manufacturers from the first TM and RM motocrossers to the GS1100E's to Bandit's and GSXR's, I've always thought they were excellent bikes.



It's good to see them stepping up and resolving a problem instead of trying to sweep it under the corporate rug.

I even found a recall on toy HD's:

I thought the LC1500 was included in that or maybe there was a seperate recall to cover it. To bad the 1400 is not in that group I got a few swirl marks in my tank. LOL!!!
