That was me

Got some stares with the group I was with that day. Even had a harley shoot up from behind me and jump in the group like I wasn't even bring up the rear. The guys I was with though I knew him...ha-guess he thought I didn't belong.
We went to Cook's corner over to PCH and then over to the R.W. Caspers park.
It was a great ride...

Keep up...they were slowin me down

Yeah, it was a little north for me. My buddy from work put the ride together...we met up with his brother in law in Anheim Hills. As for keeping up with the hogs. We did a lot of twisted roads, they hog in front of me had about 4 inches of ground clearance...I kept sneaking up on him in the turns. The lady in the car was a pain, but we ran into a dude in a pick-up as we were getting on the 15 at Lake Eilisinore that literally tried to run about three of us off the road...road rage cagger!

Take care and ride safe.

Hah sounds like fun, we'll have to do that some time. The wee will be in the shop this week though due to an engine tick that has gotten real bad.

I made a thread about it here a while back and everyone said it's normal and to live with it, definitely wasn't the right thing to do:(.

Either Corona Motorsports or Malcolm since they're the closest to me.
if you take to Malcolm deal w/ Travis if you can. He's probably the most stand up guy there. Stay away form Six Pack or Six Gun or Six Shooter whatever his name is. Yup that's his name. Indian dude, just full of BS. Can't stand him.

Ended up taking it to Malcolm, Travis wasn't available though, unfortunately. I've dealt with him as well and I agree, he was a great person to work with.

They said they will call in three days so hopefully it's good news. Whom ever I did deal with seemed like a good guy and didn't immediately dismiss the noise so I can't wait to hear his assessment after getting the bike in the workshop.

Travis took care of me good. Three times i had it in there, periodic maintenance intervals. Complained each time about the surging. Chief "you don't know what your talking about because internet forums are full of liars" Six Shooter says there ain't nothing wrong with it. Well, i took it in because the radiator was leaking and Travis wrote it up. I told him it was still surging and stalling. Suzuki covered the rad but wouldn't do anything about the surging. He had his tech set up the TBS and stuff and ate the cost. it has not stalled once and the surging is not as bad as it was. higher gear sustained speed i can barely feel it now but at lower speeds it don't buck like it used to. It seems he made sure it was done right.

Just got it back today. They said it's fine and every Strom makes that noise. They even said they had a few guys in the shop ride it.

I felt ok with that and just wanted it on paper for a 'just incase' situation.

What really had me miffed was when they tried to start the bike for me and then asked me to pop the seat so they could jump the bike with a charger. Three days with the bike and they manage to kill my battery:weapons_90:.
