"No-one will steal your bike, it's a Suzuki."
I thought he was joking.
But then I did some research and realised he wasn't.
They're well built, extremely reliable and relatively cheap.
But not popular. Not really.
Honda's and Yamaha's, yes. Kawasaki's too.
Suzuki's not so much.
I don't know. Perhaps someone who does can tell me.
Anyway, that's obviously why this one sat unsold on the dealership floor for the best part of two years before I came along and took it off their hands.
Would I do the same deal again?
I love this bike.
It's got no frills, no fancy electronics, no fancy nuthin'. But it's honest.
And it's beautiful.
No one will steal it?
More fool them.
