1986 Suzuki LS 650 Savage from New Zealand
A surprisingly able and well performing mini cruiser/commuter
Fuel tap/reserve supply would not work.
Down sized because of increasing age and wanted to ride into my eighties (68 now).
Wanted a lighter,simpler bike to ride so I swapped bikes with my next door neighbor (I got cash too :) ).
It was the best deal I could have done. The bike goes great and handles well. Great economy, and since I have purchased an Air Hawk seat cover, it is very comfortable to ride.
Way easier to ride around town than the Virago, and handles our hilly, twisty roads with no problems.
The bike had been stored in a lock-up for 17 years, so took some time to sort a few problems out from that, and that is why the mileage/kilometers are so low for the year.
Plan on doing some touring in our beautiful country on it very soon. Can't wait.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
