2005 Suzuki DL1000 K5
Seriously smooth and very reliable
Nothing has gone wrong with this machine since I bought it.
Performance-wise, it can be considered as one serious touring machine, but 3rd party luggage can be expensive.
Even fully loaded it handles well, especially on major roads and in adverse weather conditions.
Seat height could be a problem for short riders, but is very comfortable.
Suspension and screen can both be adjusted according to rider preference.
Fuel consumption is good for the size of engine.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
