Suzuki - heathen!

Post by WingAdmin » Mon Apr 05, 2010 9:06 pm

My last bike before I bought my Goldwing was a 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 750:

Moving from that bike to a Goldwing was quite a change. At first I felt like I was riding a truck. I've long since gotten used to the Goldwing, and I can fling that thing through the twisties with the best of them.

On the weekend, I visited a friend of mine who has a little Suzuki SV650. I helped her put it away for the winter last fall, and so I helped her get it out this spring and get it running. Once it was ready to go, we took a quick 45 minute spin on it. What a difference - even with her on the back of it, riding that little 375 lb Suzuki felt like riding a toy motorcycle compared to my 800+ lb Goldwing. That said, it really was a lot of fun - I wouldn't mind having a quick runabout like that just to hop on once in a while. Hmm...I wonder if I could make just a LITTLE bit more room in my garage.....
