One of the fun things with Suzuki's is that lots of bits are bolt on swaps with no major modifications required.
Whilst its good to know I don't really want to get to the stage where I'm pushing the envelope and needing things like gsx forks. I partially chose a naked to help keep speeds sane and chose a v twin because they are nice cruising motors. I like grunt but I don't want to actually end up travelling much faster than I do on the klr.

Thanks - weather permitting I'm taking 3 days for the trip (ChCh Sat night and Nelson Sun night)

Looks very smart.
Yes this weekend is the tt2000 so there will be a shitload of bikes in the top of the South Island - and logically a shitload of cops. I will keep and eagle eye on the Speedo

I can't see the dynamics being that much different than an airhead or scrambler so it should be ok
These are the best days
