I was reflecting the other day about all my past bikes and was somewhat astonished when I realized that 5 of my 7 bikes (8 if you count the Goldwing I just added to the stable) have been Suzukis.

Hello, my name is primalmu, and I'm a Suzuki rider.

Tucson is the LAST place you want to be to rectify your Suzuki addiction. We are heading into October with perfect riding weather, sunny with highs in the mid- to upper-80s!

I, reluctantly, had to give up my seat in the Suzuki Riders Anonymous club...I traded my '08 C50C for an '08 Yamaha Road Star....I miss having a water cooled engine....but I like the gearing (5th is an overdrive) and the 1700cc's over the 805cc's I had in the Suzuki :)

Sv1000

I have an SV1000S. If not that one a GSXR 750 or 1000 would be nice. But I wanted to try a big twin. Was also a lot less $$.
Road it up Island today and got it dirty.

My name is Scott, and l am a Suzukiholic.

My first bike was a 1978 Suzuki PE 175. Along the way l also had a 1973 TS250 and an LT250 quad. My current ride is a 2004 SV650S. I have also had 3 Hondas, and they all served me well...but in the end l seem to find myself back on a Suzuki again :)

Suzuki

Digging into the RAM, I realized I used to own a 250 2 stroke Suzuki in NZ. Probably be a late 70s model.
I also ran a Suzuki back wheel, swing arm and sprockets in a race bike I had. We beefed up the swing arm to reduce flexing.

Guilty as charged. First bike was a 1970 Suzuki AC50 Maverick . . . then (and still) a 1972 T250 Hustler , , , and more recently added a 1975 GT550 Indy. Love Suzukis!

Loved that 2010 Boulevard M50

Suzuki-holic from downunder here.

My second bike was a 2010 Suzuki Boulevard M50 in Candy Orange Max. Loved that bike, beautiful styling which is both a cruiser but not quite a classic cruiser. Could have done with a slightly larger fuel tank (range was only about 270 km/170 miles on a tank) and an extra disc on the front wheel and a disc brake on the rear wheel. But that would probably work negatively on it's very attractive price and I never had any concern about the braking, ride it as a cruiser and you'll be OK. I'd like to make a bagger out of one, fit hard panniers to it.

After I sold it and came over here to Aussie to work I bought a Honda ST1100, great bike for the big distances her in tropical Queensland, high seat height for my length challenged inner legs. But I sure miss that M50. We're returning to New Zealand and I'd buy another one in a flash. Might have to forgo that pleasure though, the wife has taken to riding pillion and I'll probably be looking at a Honda Goldwing or Harley Ultra Glide.

Only thing I noticed, the M50 tends to push out of corners going downhill, touch of understeer that you have to counter on downhill corners - noticed it particularly in left hand corners.

The first bike I ever rode was a TU250X then I wound up buying a GS500 as my second. Coincidence?? I would say I need help but my bike is my third child (I have two actual children)
