On Suzuki Magazine

Anyone else receive their copy of "On Suzuki" Magazine?? Found the premier issue in my mailbox yesterday (along with Rider and yet another Harbor Freight ad) indicating it's "The official Suzuki Owners Magazine" and marking 50 years in the USA. Much flashback type articles on older models and even mentions a 2003 DL-1000 with almost 300000miles. Heck, it almost made me head out to the dealer and buy a bottle of Suzuki Fuel Injector cleaner....according to teh brief article, it's almost magic.

Still not sure if it will be a periodical or if it's mostly a fancy ad celebrating the 50 years but time will tell. Editor and Publisher are shown as Glenn Hansen of Hansen House Communication in Chino Hills, CA.

I got mine yesterday. It's basically advertising. The little story on Wera688 and his close to 300,000 mile Vee was the best thing in it.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I got mine too. While it is Suzuki Propaganda, I was glad to see the attempt to connect to owners. Let's not forget the power of that...it is spelled HD!

I got mine too. It's very much in the format of HOG Magazine; lots of house ads with a smattering of propaganda articles. Pretty much what I call a bathroom magazine: it'll sit there on top the toilet tank until the next issue comes out to replace it.

I got my Wee used and only been to a dealer once so I may not be getting the mag. Sounds like Taylor guitars. You buy one and they send you the gospel according to them at regular intervals. Nice pics and adds!

Jealous.....mine didn't come (if I'm even getting it.....). Wera688 only lives about 30 minutes south of me. Would love to talk turkey with him sometime.

My copy arrived yesterday, exactly one week after I made my first parts order at an official Suzuki dealer. I assumed it was just pure customer-engagement, like the way Ace Hardware sends me a coupon a few days after I visit their store.
