2007 Suzuki Boulevard M50
Vibration in mirrors consistent with engine rpms; hard to see behind you.
Vibration in handle bars; hands go numb after 10 miles at 65 mph.
But factory says OK, and mine is the only complaint; is this possible???
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No

Too many reviews have been positive. I am going to purchase a 2008 M50 this weekend based on all of the feedback.
I'm hoping that your name is "Thomas"!

Based on your comments about vibration, I don't understand why you gave a rating of 9/10 for comfort. You were way harder on everything else (most other categories were around 5\10), but don't explain why.
I would appreciate it if you could reconcile the inconsistency of your review.

I bought a 2007 M50 Boulevard Limited in October of 2006. I am the original owner.
I was pleased with the bike until around 20K miles when I got a knocking noise in the engine.
At 7K miles I had the valves checked, and all was OK.
At around 20K miles, the automatic tension for the valve chains failed to keep the chain tension. This caused over $1600.00 worth of repairs. The Suzuki rep said too many miles and too old a bike to give any assistance. I feel the bike should last more than from October 2006 to December 2011. The oil was changed every 3K miles, and the mechanic said I could not do anything to keep this from happening, because the chain tension is automatic for the valves.
