    Congrats! The seat is an easy fix. I found a Suzuki gel seat for under $200 and my but is happy. The C50 is a great bike. The only reason I went to the C90 is that my wife wanted to come with and I live in the mountains needed a bit more umphh for 2 up. Great choice A fun bike

    Congrats.



    I have the 05 SE and have 39,000 kms on it.
    Great bike, recommend to everyone, I suggest you check out Gman industry for the shift lever bushing, well worth the money as it improves shifting.

    Knew you'd love that C50T, did you remove the sticker on the gas tank yet? Congrats on your new ride!

    Ha! Not yet. I have been busy polishing up the chrome and working the leather. Got it shining pretty good! Took it riding tonight actually and it's so much fun! Feels like a good ride.

    My C50T is 2 years old and still has the tank sticker, but it's covered over with a US Navy refrigerator magnet in honor of our son in the Navy...

    That's actually a really cool idea.

    I went riding yesterday and had to take a pic (poor quality due to camera phone):

    Well I have a 06 c50 I find that bike at highway speeds does not handle well, the front wheel starts shaking and I need to hold on to the handle bars, but at city driving it handles fine.

I have been riding it almost every day and I absolutely love it. It handles well, it feels solid. It get's a lot of looks. I keep shining it up after every ride. I think I made a wise decision.
    I bought an 05 this summer I really enjoy it have 7000 on it now no problems

    Reading some of the seat posts I believe the seat issues are because of rider anatomy and not with the seat. I thought the stock seat on my '05 C50T was uncomfortable so I got the Suzuki replacement gel seat, sold the original and no problems since.
    I bought mine because I liked its look and sound. I still do, but the bags limit access to the tires and cleaning so I'm thinking of taking them off and putting a bag on the back rest.

    Nobody can tell you what fits you better more than your body, when you sit on the bike. I would highly encourage you to go to dealership and sit on both. Long frame (8 inch longer than Harley Heritage) fits really well taller folks 5.9+ ft. Its mid weight is great for beginner riders. It looks and feels like real cruiser up to 65-70 miles per hour. For speeds above 70 m/h, it gets shaky. Also, to reach maximum comfort and longer rides, Suzuki flat seat must be changed to more custom Ultimate or Mustang. After that, I was able to make 3-4 hours on the bike without feeling much tired. Suzuki Boulevard was my first bike, and I really liked it. My thumbs up to it.
