2009 Boulevard S50 (aka "Steve")

Chandra and Steve
This is Steve. Steve is my buddy. He was a hand-me-down, but he fits me perfectly and I love him.
We bought Steve when my husband retired from the Marine Corps in 2010. He had taken a job in a town about 30 miles away, so driving his big diesel pickup every day was not the best situation. He has always loved motorcycles but hadn't had one for ten years or so - so we went down to the dealership and bought the last S50 they had (2009 was the last year Suzuki made this model.)
He loved it, I didn't - the passenger pillion was HORRIBLE. So he put a Mustang seat on it and had our local customizer shop make him a sissy bar, and I rode behind him for three years.
But two months ago he got the bug to get something a little bigger. So I adopted Steve. As of today, he and I have 115 miles together since I passed the MSF class and got my license.
