Hubba! Hubba! Me Too! That GSX1400 might be the only Suzuki that has a chance of ever seeing the inside of my garage.

No idea, the police don't either.

I'm assuming it was a "contractor van" or pick-up truck though.

That looks just like my XJR1300, and let me tell you, she is every bit as fun as she looks in that picture! Gobs of torque, not that much power, delivered in complete smoothness. The vibration of the big engine lets you know you must be careful with the LOL grip, the power delivery is so smooth it's easy to forget how much torque there is. The downside is that, having an engine the size of a small car she has the same thirst for dinosaur juice than a car.

From what I've read, the GSX has even more torque and is less thirsty.

One that does inter-state, or trans-continental blitzing like the Concours 14. Then, when the road becomes gravel, a toggle on the bar converts the bike to a 1200 GS, as needed. Then, as the wide gravel road becomes two track, another toggle of the switch it becomes an 800 GS. Further, when the two track becomes single track and technical, another toggle of this transformer switch has the bike converting to a 500 EXC. Lastly, exhausted from the all-in-one ride, the final switch toggle reverts back to the Concours 14 for the next destination or the ride home.

And then you come home and decide that you don't want to have just
one bike - toggle switch or not!

The one I just bought. I don't have it yet and this is the only decent pic I could find of one like it. It's a 110th anniversary Bonneville T100.
