Hi everyone,

Brand new to riding. I took the MSF Basic Rider Course last fall and brought home a shiny new Suzuki Boulevard S40 Yesterday. Have been doing laps around the neighborhood for two days now...the neighbors may be beginning to worry. Have been walking around with a silly grin on my face too. Look forward to participating in the forum and learning from all of you.

Can't stop grinning

Brought it home Saturday with 1.9 miles on the odometer. Had to wait to ride it until after the daughters birthday party. Managed to put on 50 miles this weekend without leaving the friendly confines of my small town (pop. 1100). Wasn't quite comfortable taking it out in the country (winds of 35 mph this weekend). Pictures to come.

Broke one-hundred

Took the old girl for a spin this evening and she now has over 100 miles on the odometer. All the miles except the first 1.9 were put on by me. It may be very hard to let anyone else ride her.

Oh nice bike. I rode passenger on a Suzuki S50. At least it's good to know that not every biker in the midwest has to own a a Harley and talks trash on Japanese bikes.

Kind of reminded me of the Gran Torino movie where Clint Eastwood's character talks about supporting American and hates how his son makes a good living selling Japanese cars.

But I think Japanese makes just as good of bikes as Harleys and don't charge a premium for the name.

Done. New thread started in the "Riding Companions Wanted" with a proposed date of April 28. Rally at Southridge Mall (and I assumed that it was the Southridge Mall in Des Moines).
