Just the new issue of Cruiser which tested the big twins. M109, VTX1800F, Yam Roadliner, and Kaw Vulcan. I was surprised to see how harsh they were of the 109? Statements like "truck shifter" and excessive shaft drive hop leave me wondering :dontknow: , is this the bike I want? My eyes say YES, my brain says read more posts..perhaps waiting till Suzuki smooths the kinks out is not a bad idea. Took a long long time to convince wife I need a ride again and must do this right. I have never owned a Suzuki, but Honda and Yamaha have never treated me wrong. I don't remember my friends GSXR1100 shifting poorly. I do must admit though that a shaft drive bike will be a whole new experience to me. Were these guys biased towards a certain brand? There seems to be some real valuable input on this site and some answers or insight would be greatly appreciated..I am just a hard working dude that needs to make sure he is parting with his money on the right horse.
