I must say that this bike has the best exhaust note of any stock pipes that I can remember. The bike really sounds good going down the road. ;D It's hard to believe we have a CAT on this thing. I wonder how much weight we will drop when we all start changing pipes and I wounder how good it's going to sound. ::)

The bike is a lot of fun to ride. By next month I should have a 300 on the back and a lowering linkage too. I have a meeting setup with one of the guys that builds parts for us and he's pretty excited about tearing into this bike too.

I agree the sound is great from stock is truly impressive thru a roll-on starting over 4500RPMs - sweet!!

I'm looking forward to seeing the 300. What kind of rim and rubber combo are you thinking of swapping in?

Hey, I would like to see who's making aftermarket wheels for our bike. I'm also looking into a 280 or 300 rear. Keep us posted.

I agree, I think the sound/pitch with the stock exhaust sounds great!  Let me know what you come up with with the rear wheel set up.

It is all so true. With each day the love grows stronger. Sounds great, and it runs great. I finally found a bike I can keep. :)

That is until something newer and faster comes out! ;D (Just like the rest of us)

i thought (and hoped a bit) the excitement would wear off. it's not. havin a hard time goin to sleep cause i'm excited about getting up and going riding again. kinda funny.

i just got home from iraq, and wanted to buy myself a new ride, since i sold my honda shadow before i left. i was looking at all kinds of bikes from all the manufacturers, american and metric. all these classic/retro harley knockoffs were ok, but nothing to get excited about. wasn't even considering a suzuki really, because i'd seen all the 05 stuff and nothing really stood out. but being thorough, i checked out their 06 stuff, and blam, there she was. the more i looked at the 109, and researched it, the more i knew it was the perfect bike for me. i'm so happy i was thorough...i couldn't be happier.

It is an addicting ride thats for sure, its such a smooth powerfull rumble when rolling it on and off fairly good in the curves. I'm just getting paranoid about the cops, starting to think they are around every corner. Its nothing to roll it on a little and be over the speed limit my 20 mph in the blink of an eye.

Well Lamont made this post back in April and discussed getting the lowering link for his bike. It has only taken 6 months to get a CNC version but I should have mine ready for Daytona. I can't wait.

Here is the link to place a pre-order in our store:

20 MPH over, is that all?
I constantly find myself at or over 100 after a nice long freeway on-ramp.
It sscary how bloody fast this bike is!

Gotta give a +1 on this one.. One of the reasons I've decided to not get a windshield is that all the air trying to blow me backwards off the bike is the primary way I know I need to slow down... doesn't work 100%.. if riding with a strong tail-wind I've actually caught myself at 130mph.. although at that speed if I'm wearing my backpack the plastic pulls on the ends of the should strap adjustments are usually tapping me on the shoulder reminding me to STFD! :D (and they aren't tapping lightly, actually had one chip when it hit my helmet and this isn't your el'cheapo type backpack, K-Swiss laptop backpack.. super well made and tough as nails).

Why did it take so long?
