If I do this right, more than one choice may be made but I see no way to allow those owning more than one bike in one category to account for more than one.

It's easy to tell some people have more than one as the total of percentages right now is 115%.

Before this gets out of hand, please just take the poll above. There is no need to post the info. This is not a discussion forum.

Should the K7 650 (4 plugs, etc.) be moved to the K8 - L1 group?

I have it separated by changes in the charging system. I'm hoping to get a better idea of the count of the bikes by electrical output as well as model.

I am rather surprised by the proportion on 2012+. Must indicate brisk and accelerating sales for Suzuki.

I just put deposit on 2009 today. Pick up in 2 weeks ( since I'm going on vacation tomorrow). 4th Wee beside 2 Vee. Finally I'm getting one with silver wheels!

Probably reflects that newer owners are more likely to enthusiastically search for information and spread their excitement; whereas older more "seasoned" owners are likely to have heard everything and said every thigh and as a result participate less.

Maybe; maybe not. The poll doesn't have the data to support the claim.

- An alternate hypothesis could be that riders search out a forum for info when they buy a new bike.

- Another could be Stroms break and are junked so older models do not get represented.

(OK, that last one probably isn't the reason...)

Please vote in the poll at the top of the page rather than posting your ride.

Already voted, but I feel I must post. It's a sickness.

My first Vee was a 2007 in blue. Corbin seat, Suzi luggage, Givi engine guards, AMS bash plate, Happy Trail highway pegs.



I loved that machine, clutch basket chudder and all. But our relationship ended badly.



Then came the '04 in silver.



She redeemed me from the ashes. I farkled her up in similar fashion, except she had the stock seat and Kappa luggage. She served me well through long distances and rough terrain, but my eye wandered.

Now I'm two-timing.



The younger gal will surely win out. The only question is whether I have enough time and energy for them both, or if I need to find a new suitor for the old grey lady.


Escape the cage!
