A great ride

I bought this bike in April 2015 and have put over 5000 miles on it to date. There was a recall on this bike for wiring issues (3 separate things to check). Mine was completed and all bad wiring replaced or modified. The bikes runs and rides great and has all the power (100 HP) that you need. The seat is a little tall but at 6'1" I can easily touch the ground. It's harder to mount and dismount as this bike, as many others, have the passenger portion of the seat and the rear rack higher than the riders seat. The bike handles great and takes all the potholes and rough roads here in Ohio in stride. The only negative I can see is a knocking noise at idle that Suzuki tells me is caused by the straight cut primary gears. I would recommend this bike to anyone but be sure to read the comments on the idle hammer on various forums. It's slightly annoying but not a deal breaker for me.

Upgrades/Accessories:  Centerstand, tail pack.
