I have a Suzuki Boulevard c50 right now I actually just got it like 1 month ago I started riding on a 2005 kawasaki vulcan en 500 and most of my falls were on the vulcan… all but one of my falls have been at low speeds and thank god I have only got a few scrapes and bruises and I believe that has a lot to do with my leather jacket it’s kept my upper body from any injuries…. My Boulevard has crash bars and they work excellent I can’t believe how great they work protecting the bike!!! Up until about a week ago I felt really comfortable on my new bike but after my first fall on this bike I just don’t feel safe on it for some reason? I guess I knew it was because of too much front brake but I guess I needed to hear it from experienced riders to really understand it so I’m gonna really practice using only my rear brake when going slow speeds…. Thank you to everyone for all the great advice I really appreciate it!!!
