I went to the local steakhouse last night for dinner. As usual, I parked the 9 right up front where I could keep an eye on her while I ate. Got done and walked outside to find a 30ish couple looking at the bike. Just as I got within earshot the female says, "I hate it, I don't like the looks of that thing at all". I grabbed my helmet and got on the bike and the dude was asking a million questions. By this time the lady realized that I had probably heard her, her face was beet red, and he was looking at me apologetically, lol....anyway, they both thought it was custom and their jaws hit the floor when I told them it was a Zuki and the grips were the only mod I had done...lol. Typical open mouth insert foot moment. :dontknow:

A friend and myself rode around the west coast for 20 days ( he owns a dyna ) every where we went i got stopped an asked what it was. Everyone loved the bike and it pissed off my friend because he spent 20 gran + for bike and extras and hardly anyone looked at his. i just grined as he watched with envy.

I noticed that with most the bikes I have grown to love the most I hated them at first. My VTX, Busa, and dare I say even my 109. It just goes to show when things break out from the norm they aren't always well received. As I mentioned before though, I love them and don't have the slightest bit of regret buying them. The "freaky" lookin bikes usually bring the most to the table with them as well. Gotta love innovation!

When I first read this board somebody said " you'll be surprised how many people go out of their way to walk around the bike and stare"
...three resteraunts later, I too park where I can see it and there is a constant audience for the Burple....People walk around....and around...and there is always somebody there when I come out to ask what it is.....This bike is BEAUTIFUL!!! and a monster on the road...could not have made a better choice.

Was coming back from the Tax office this morning on mine and this chick on a zuki 650 pulled up next to me and asked me who made my bike... I could see her jaw drop inside her full faced helmet when I told her mine was a suzuki also. At last count there were only like 5 109 owners from this board in Austin (that I recall) and apparently we all live in different parts of town, cause most people that see the 9 don't have a clue what it is, who makes it and have never seen one before.

GOD ya gotta love that 8)

...But it's grown on me and I can now appreciate not looking like everyone else. The only thing I'm still not fond of is the tank seam.Â
Agree 100%
