I'm really not sure what to think about the styling???




It looks like a comfortable ride though. What is the weight?

Good call. Parts of the 101 in Scottsdale are closed this weekend.

I'd be eating breakfast at home. If I can make it, what's the latest time I could meet you at 101/Broadway?

We should be pulling out around 7:00, that should give us enough time to get there. It's about 25 miles.

I think he said it weighs in at around 600 and something. Pretty light for 150hp. I didn't think I liked the styling when I first saw it either, but it definitely is starting to grow on me. I don't think I'd buy one for myself, but it's such a cool machine mechanically and engineering wise, that it's earned lots of my respect. Although it doesn't look like it, the thing is built for speed.

I think it looks great!! At 600 lbs and 150 hp it has about 1 horse for every four pounds of bike!! Not a bad ratio. I've looked at a couple of these, if I were to buy a "street bike", it woud be on my short list.

You are on your own

Bike-power-Crisis has conflicts.
Enjoy the ride and me and fuzz will catch up when you do a real ride - like to Alaska or Russia. Alaska/China and Russia are closer then you think and with global warming due to Suzuki products the land forms in those regions are swelling and soon we will connect to Asia.

Darin,

This ride was just tested in the latest issue of Motorcyclist magazine...

778 lbs wet, 107 rwhp.

Your friend is enamored of his bike but he's not to keen on the specs. Probably had a really good salesman give him the biz....

I will leaving the meeting place or "место встречи" at 101 and Broadway at 7AM and headed for the ultimate "место встречи" at I-17 and Bell. It would be great if you joined us.
If it will help change your mind about joining us, we can change the the name of the ultimate destination to Wickengrad.

Al Gore is a politician, he only Lies about riding a bike.

Sorry we won't be able to make the ride. I sort of accidentally on purpose volunteered to foster the dog we found two weeks ago. Have fun and be safe.
