Revs for Suzuki Intruder VL250?

  1. :) Hi all,
    First time writer.

    Well I just got my L's and recently purchased a Suzuki VL250 (2004). After going for a few rides, I'm concerned with it's top speed. It hits 110kms OK, but it seems like the engine starts screaming at me to slow down!! (SLOW DOWN YOU IDIOT, WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING TO ME!!!)It just doesn't sound or feel right. Is this my lack of experience talking or do bigger bikes feel safer at speeds?

    Thanks in advance for your input.
    GREAT SITE!! :grin

  2. In case you haven't already read it there's a review of the VL250 to be found here. They only managed to push the test bike to a maximum of 120kph so that would proably explain why it's not too happy about sitting on 110.
