Welcome mate. The Suzukis are bloody reliable and you'll spend more time riding than ever. Great bunch of helpful people on this site so there's always an answer to any (rare) issue.

Welcome to the group. I've had a fair few Suzukis from a Katana 650 back in the early 80's to a GSX1250FA now. They have all been great and never a mechanical issue. Laurie

Hello and welcome to the forum. Now of course you'll have to start waving or head nodding to acknowledge other riders Smile

believe it or not,i am from that era where we always acknowledge other riders,id either raise a hand or give a nod,dont matter to me what you ride,what i cant stand nowadays is the fact that everyone seems to have a harley then they dress up as pirates,i mustve really stood out riding my old bike with a fullface,most times noone would acknowledge me..yeh harleys in my book aint as special as they used to be when there wasnt many people with them..overpriced,under-engineered,pieces of poo..
