Gday guys

Just thought i would join here as im looking at buying one of these beasts or really tossing up between the M109 and a rocket 3. This is the best place to start as i can see pics of customs and see what people think of them. Soooo Guys tell me why will the suzuki be better than the Rocket

I have a Triumph Speed Triple Anniversary model and my GF is buying a Thruxton but triumph is stuffing me around so i think my money will be going elsewhere for the cruiser. I had an accident on the Speedy and at the moment the tank has taken 4 months and maybe 5 months after Christmas. I dont think it is good enough and no one at triumph gives a **** so thats why im looking at a suzuki now. Certainly not looking at the tractor harleys

Ok well thats my rant. Hopefully catch up with a few of you guys and have a look at some bikes. Going to take one for a test ride this weekend.

They are a tough looking bike when customised

:welcome: scotte take my advice i was going to do the same as you and look at buying a bike other than the 9 ( choice was between honda fury :confused: or triumph thunder bird ??? ) but a friend bought a 9 and i fell in love. I'm going to pick my baby up on Mon or Tues this week. She's a brand new 2010 m109r LE, black with the orange stripe :drool: , and i bought her from Action suzuki in the city. Do yourself a favour go see ADAM at Action Suzuki in the city ,Wentwoth ave . Tell him Marco sent you and he'll give you a good deal. Good luck dude you'll love the ride and just remember she's a big one with a bit of grunt :evil:. Let me know how you go. Cheers Toro9:bigthumbsup:

:welcome:Scotte. I also bought the 2010LE in August and have had a blast with her since. For a big cruiser the 9 can really get up & go, hopefully you'll have had the test ride & have loved the experience!
I've also got an 06 speed triple & love riding them both - although at the moment the 9 gets more of my riding time :-\...

Hey Guys

Never got to do the test ride on the weekend so going this weekend instead. My GF is keen on the 109 after we saw a LE on the weekend that had a black cobra black ceramic coated exhaust, and was lowered. Thinking of the black and doing a silver stripe on it like the LE models have. The bikes are bloody good value thats for sure. I dont mind the one in the pic though for looking tough

:welcome: to the forum. :bigthumbsup:

I think the 9 is a much better looking bike and in power they are very close.
