I've owned several Suzuki bikes over the years. I have no complaints with them. All ran like tops.

I loved the Max, everything was stock and I loved every mile, I have ridden more comfortable bikes, I sold it because it let me down 520 miles from home..Overheated..

No, not BRAND loyal, in anything. If I want something I get the one I like the best for ME. As far as bike are conserned I'm not even loyal to a particulay type. If it has 2 wheels and a motor I will happily ride it, instead walking. But the bike I buy will be the best bike for the type of riding I intend to use it for. These days my needs are for a Freeway commuter that can be used for Short distance 2up touring, while discouraging Aggressive riding. The Shadow fits that bill, perfect, for me, for now.
