First, Lamont, I'm not a stalker, just very interested in the M109R, but I followed you over from the X board. Anyway, can anybody answer a couple of questions? :

1. What is the mileage you can get out of one tank of gas?
2. Has anyone had the wife on the back yet? what was the seat and ride comfort review from her?
3. The pics of the 109 with the bags and backrest, where did the accessories come from?

I am considering a blue one. Fill me in please....

Saw my first one today too. I think it looks awesome, had I not already purchased the 03 VTX in the Honda Firesale, I would have had to have one.

Got a friend so interested though, he's about to trade in his Mean Streak tomorrow. Poor Meanie can't even out run our buddies 1300 VTX C.

I'll go 120 between fill ups. And there's still over a gallon left. So at 33 miles per gallon, 5.2 gallon tank = over 150 miles.

The girlfriend liked sitting higher on my old bike, but she rode with me for about an hour and didn't complain.

Should be a lot better with a cushier touring seat and backrest, both of which should be available soon.

Someone mentioned a detatchable backrest that removes with the pillion. That would be cool.

I have seen 165 on a tank even somewhat ham fisted on the throttle that day, and finally it went to one bar on the guage.

All depends on how much you get it her, but I can usually get around 150 miles with everage driving. I have a sissy bar modified to my back seat ( I usually have the seat cowl on it, but this makes the transfermation pretty easy ) & my wife never complains about it being uncomfortable. She enjoys riding on the back of it over any of the other bikes I have taken her on a ride with. It is a very smooth running bike and doesn't have a ton of vibration for the passenger. On a personal note though, I don't know :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:. I never ride BIATCH on my own ride.

Check out the Corbin website, they offer a pillion seat that has a backrest built into it. My wife loves it but I don't have any photos of it on the bike as I only put it on when she is going to go with me. Also Cortech sport saddle bags work really good on the bike I have been told.

Hope this helps :bigthumbsup:

:welcome: My wife rides with me all the time during the warmer months. This time of the year it's just me riding solo. She's always said she's very comfy back there. I'm gonna invest in the gel seats for the both of us just to make the long rides that much more comfortable..

you can get 1200 miles on a tank - (actually 175-200)

my wife rides about 50% of the time on this bike, loves it, but invest in the gell seats from suzuki for her,
my wife likes riding this bike better than our C90.....

you can get the bags,backrest, rack from DLP, your dealer, or check for genuine Suzuki accessories on line
