2011 Suzuki Boulevard S40 from United States of America
Damn fine machine to meander about on a fine sunny afternoon
Lovely little roadster, which brings back memories of my youth, exploring twisty country roads to the steady thump of a well tuned big single.
Rock solid and reliable, and the perfect size for the old fat guy such as myself who is arthritic and slow, but wants to remember how I felt 50 years ago.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I like your honest review of the S40. Had '85 4 cylinder Goldwing Interstate I gave to my LAPD motor cop nephew when I moved to Linden, NC.
I am old and fat too... 76 years. Cannot handle heavy MC's anymore. Decided on a used S40. My 50cc scooter, 30mph, getting too dangerous on state highways with trucks exceeding 55 mph limit... even though I ride on Rightside White line on two lane highways. I've been caught in rain on Hwy 401 (Ramsey St) in Fayetteville, NC... wet OK, but scary... could not see well.
That is the reason for bike that can cruise 65mph all day, 80 MPG?
Have you heard of camchain tensioner issues?
