Yayyy I'm gonna ride too!
Still at the dealership, but she's mine!
My brand new bike is a 2009 silver/grey Suzuki Boulevard C50 SE. Okay, so it's not a 2011, but it is brand new. I've been riding as a passenger on the back of my hubby's HD Night Train till now. Which I enjoyed tremendously. But when he said he would love to see me ride my own bike, I was all for it. And we started to look at bikes that would be comfortable for me, and would be easy to handle. At first we checked out HD's. And although several HD models feel comfortable, and are beautiful and all, I wasn't willing to fork out HD dollars for a first bike. I did tons of online research and noticed Kawasaki Vulcan's, and Suzuki Boulevards are also popular amongst women. So I sat on the Vulcan 900 Classic, which did feel comfortable, mainly because of the seat height. I wasn't sure that was the bike for me though. Then, a week ago, we went to check out a few more motorcycle dealerships, and there she was... pretty as hell, so I sat on it and she felt like she'd been waiting for me. The price was also something we couldn't get over. We just felt it would be stupid to walk out of the place and not buy it. The next day we picked her up, hubby rode her home with me being jealous and following in our truck. Now I'm the proud owner of a gorgeous bike that purrs like a kitten, and is an incredible smooth ride. The seat makes for a very relaxed sit, and the suspension is a lot less tough than hubby's HD. The bike doesn't have the roar like a HD, but that's fine with me. Hubby's Night Train makes enough noise for two. All I gotta do now is take a riders course and then I'm gonna cruise next and with my best friend, my wonderful husband. I can't wait!!!
