My new bike.

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Sleddog, Aug 11, 2006.

  1. Well i got it a few weeks ago ,but didn't have any good photos.
    It's a Suzuki M50 boulevard 800cc ,EFI, V twin, shaft drive ,no chain to clean ,check shaft oil every 5000km. :grin: .

    It gets up and goes really well ,for a cruiser of 240kg ,sits on 120km ,in the 4th and puuuuurrrrrrss.
    Does the 1/4 mile in 13 seconds, so im told I only got 400km on mine, not bad for a beast.

    Heaps of fun to throw around ,you can get into the twistys on this cruiser.
    I have added after market screen for long or hwy rides ,takes 30 seconds to put on or off ,also added BLING lights for BLING and so i can be seen, the bike it black and i got black jacket and helmet ,got to loook the part. :LOL:
    And the best part ,bugger all chrome and black mag rims.
    Check out the size of the front tyre and the pillion seat comes off ,to give it a long whooping guard look.

    Anyways heres some pic's if you want to see a power cruiser. :wink:

  2. ah very nice and shiny.... looks like a nice comfy ride. You didn't take any pics with the pillion seat off either.

    Have fun on your new toy

    cheers stewy

  7. Nice bike, I like it a lot.
  8. Nice bike mate. Your right about the front tyre. That is some seriously thinck profile rubber! :grin:
  9. OOH HAA

  10. :shock: :applause: SEEEXXYYYYY Beast you have there :beer:

  11. whats the profile on that front tyre? looks as wide as a treetrunk, and about a 90 profile!
  12. looks good.

    what drew you to this, as opposed to a harley?
  13. woah dude that bike looks fat. in a good way. lovin it. its fat all over and like you said not too much chrome, but enogh to make it |->BLING<-| (i blinged out the word)

    nice ride man. thumbs up (y)
  14. Cheers guys ,im having alot of fun with it ,still not sure if im a cruiser rider ,or a sports bike rider ,but im having fun testing different bikes out.

    mism... the tyre size is a 90/130-16 .

    Joel , If they made a bike in my budget they would of been on my list ,with all the other brands.
    I wouldn't buy the speedster ,and not enjoy it ,just so i could say ...yeah i ride a harley .

    Cheers and beers
  15. I want a Yamaha Warrior.
    That is the cruiser I will buy "one day".

    Edit: here's a pic! Sex on toast.
  16. Too sexy, i can see myself crsing to the beach on that one... I cant wait till I have a middle aged crisis to get one :LOL: I'm still on teh 1/4 life crisis toy...
  17. understood, good point.
    you shoulda test-rode a few harleys to see what the difference is, aesthetically there is no great difference, power - i only ever rode a harley (in the cruiser range), and handling - as before.
    would be intreresting to hear the difference - anyone?

    if, given the above were comparable or equal of course the harley is a better buy (if you have the dough) due to resale value.
    if you dont want to outlay so much cash then your m50 looks the better buy for jap-reliability and to be honest it looks nice.

    have fun dude
