Finally after years of wanting a bike I picked up a Suzuki across in April. I have absolutely loved the bike has been awesome to learn on and the practicallity of its "boot" made life easy however I got into a situation a few weeks back where it was safest to just lay the bike down, only got a cracked rib for the experience but my little across got a bit of damage down the left side. Seems that parts for this baby are pretty pricey and it may end up being a write-off. Was hoping to keep this girl till I was off my L's and P's before upgrading but looks like fate had other ideas and as such may be in the market for a new bike soon. I'm 28 and had my full car license forever so I should be off my L's whenever and P's 12 months later Do get another Across or... do I make the change and get a cruiser, possibly V Star 650?? thoughts?
