At home, waiting to be ridden!

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!!!

Just Picked Up My C50 Yesteray
by: Patti from Vancouver

I am 57 yrs old, and hadn't owned a bike since I was 18. I have ridden only a few times in these years. But, I wanted this as part of my "bucket list". It is a 2010, but new, 0 kms, year warranty and I liked that! But, it is one damn big bike to me right now. I only have my learners right now, but I was intent on getting it home yesterday, with me driving it. I had a friend follow in an SUV. I thought I was going to be sick from fear and excitement as I started it up and pulled away from dealership. I did well, though, no stalls, no falls, just slow and steady. I am enrolled in the course for August, but will try to practice with this C50 when a friend can come with me. I just would like some reassurance from some other ladies that ride a heavy bike to keep my confidence up! Help.....a little scary. I am 5' 5 1/2", and weight about 135.

Yeah for you!!
by: Ms B

I also bought a left over new bike, but I ended up with the Vulcan 900. The C50 was my next choice, but the Vulcan just felt right for me. I couldn't walk away from that price for a new bike with a full warranty.

Enjoy the class and just do your best to relax and trust the bike. Look into the turns and you'll be able to pull off a U-turn with no problem. If not, it's just a small portion of the test.

There's nothing like cruising down the highway with your best friend/hubby by your side. Love it!!!

Congratulations!! Getting a leftover new bike is a great deal! Have fun with the rider course and enjoy this wonderful time in your life. There is nothing like riding your own bike! Very empowering.

Good for you girl. There is no better feeling than to ride alongside your husband.
