Congratulations on a good buy.
I have always been fond of Suzuki's, good value, good performance and good fun!

I like the logic of getting her a matching set to avoid control confusion.

My first dirt bikes were Suzuki's.
The biggest Suzuki I ever owned was 797 cc and with its current owner is pulling logs out of the bush with the original engine!
I bought it in 1981 and sold it to him in 1990 as of March, when I was talking to them it was still earning its keep, it has 4 wheels, a rusty and well beaten LJ80.
It lives on Manitoulin Island, which of course is fairly close to some of Michigan.

Great bikes. Just watch as the first thing that touches down in the curvy stuff is the huge bar under the frame that the footpegs are attached to. No give at all like a bike that has feelers that "give". Next thing you know your back tire is moving off to the side. Once you get used to knowing its limits it's ok, but definitely gives you a good scare first time it happens.

Live for Today, for Tomorrow may never come.
