My 2009 Suzuki Gladius

My 2009 Suzuki Gladius

In May I purchased my first street bike. I took the motorcycle safety course, got my license and then went in search of the perfect bike for me.

I had my list of specifics that I wanted. I wanted something sporty but didn’t want to constantly be leaning over. I wanted something with a big enough engine to keep up with my hubby’s Yamaha FZ1 but wouldn’t be overly intimidating to a first time rider. I’m also a little on the short side (5’3”) and wanted something small enough and maneuverable enough for me to handle with confidence. After checking out numerous bikes, comparing a variety of specs and asking countless questions, I finally found my bike- a white and blue 2009 Suzuki Gladius.

I love my little Gladius. It rides smooth, it's light and maneuverable and it’s so much fun! And at 650cc, it has plenty of power! My hubby and I have been going on short trips around town, and we’re both looking forward to longer trips together in the future. I’m 44 and at first I worried that I was too old to take up motorcycling, but I’m finding out what more and more women my age (and older) have discovered- that you’re never too old to learn something new and to have fun doing it. And as the saying goes, “4 Wheels move the body, but 2 Wheels move the soul”. Happy motoring ladies and ENJOY the ride!

Corbin Seat For Suzuki Gladius
by: Cindy Jo

About the only negative comment I've heard concerning the Gladius is the seat. I just got my Gladius back from Corbin Custom Seats located in Hollister, CA. My new seat feels and looks WONDERFUL!!!!

Glad I Got the Gladius

I just bought my first bike also, which is exactly the same as yours, a Suzuki Gladius. I love it because it doesn't feel heavy, and is has just the right amount of power. Happy riding!
