Has this been done anywhere? The thread on 50cc bikes got me thinking, I actually haven't owned many, but worked in a dealer for years so rode loads, demo bikes are cheap to run hahahaha.

Suzuki X1 (ZR50) (my apprenticeship bike haha)
Suzuki ZR50SL < awful
Suzuki GP100 < as a gullable teenager I was jammed in to this bad example by a shit dealer
Suzuki GT250 X7 < pig but a classic
Yamaha TZR250 < rode the tits off this minter - 1st wife took it to IOM in 1994
Honda CBR600FN < special special bike
Company bikes were many ....... I had the run of many demonstrators for a few years - but BMW K1100RS, BMW R1100GS, TRIUMPH SPEED TRIPLE, TIGER, DAYTONA, SPRINT, TROPHY, YAMAHA YZF750SP < (which was a poor mans RC30 but still very expensive hence we couldn't sell it and registered it as a demo) ..... was lucky enough to ride almost everything from the 90's. Worthy of a mention was a Yamaha GTS1000, rare and quite a decent ride and I wonder if many are out there still?
Had another TZR250 ...... plus for fun a couple of Yam Scooters thrown in for cheap giggles, a Beewee 100 and a 125.
An R6, an R1 and after much changing my mind back & forth I went to an adventure bike, my BMW F800GS which ticks a few boxes but not all ....... I have itchy feet. What's next I wonder?

THERE it is!!!! An NC30. Beautiful. Followed up by Biposto 748. Was the Duc yellow? I once played out on a yellow one. I owned a TZR250 at the time and it felt the same size. Fantastic thing the 748. Then the Speed Triple! Pretty much three bikes I could still live my dream with today.

It was yellow until I threw it down the road. Then I painted it the same scheme as the IMS Ducati team bike...I think it was called IMS. It was such a cool bike. I swaped it for a Nissan Skyline before they became super expensive and rare

I ride a
Boulevard s83 & Boulevard s40
Just bought a bike today, but my list is still the shortest here. I now own 2 bikes. Wasn't intentional, but I ended up with them both being the same bike, just different sizes. Not complaining though, love both of them and they have different ride styles from eachother.
2008 Boulevard s83 and 2009 Boulevard s40.
4120

4121

Both photos taken day of purchase. Both bikes have the windscreens taken off now and the s40 has a tailbag instead of saddle bags aswell as aftermarket rear turn signals.
Any Suzuki cruisers out there?

Boulevard s83 & Boulevard s40
both very different to ride I imagine with the different engines?
Very much so. If I'm going down a highway or any long distance the s83 is so much faster and more comfortable. Once I hit any slow tight turns I want to be on the s40. The s83 still handles great in the turns, but that s40 is so light and nimble. I'm thinking of maybe turning the s40 into a dirt tracker.
