saying hello

Hello All,

I'm not an M50 owner just yet, just a couple weeks. Got the Black on hold (no blue :( ) But I'll be spotting in quite often till I get it and load the pic's up as I add to it. :)

Been in the saddle for about 14 years, so not a new rider at all. Mostly sport bikes and standards (Yamaha), but the looks of the M50 and the test ride of a C50 sold me on Suzuki's. Waiting on the VA to get off their butts and send me some overdue money and I'll go down to pick it up.

Have not owned a cruiser since my 883, but glad to have found one I with the features I wanted. For those of you adding on...keeps those pics coming cause I wasn't sold on the backrest until I say a pic of it installed.

Trashed my older Seca II last December when some idiot whipped out in front of me trying to beat a bus, so I'm MORE than anxious to get back on the road. Going stircrazy...hehe

Adios for now

Welcome and might I say good choice of bike ;-) . Here's a pic of mine with the Suzuki backrest and brackets installed. It's top notch quality, sturdy and beautifully finished. I still like the bike better without the rear seat or bar, but hey it's the price we pay when family members are involved! :roll:

Zuki it was your pic that sold me on the backrest (is that a short?). I think it looks excellent myself. When it comes the shields...I've seen some good choices..but the OEM still looks the best for me. I think the bike deserves a small slick shield to match it's slope.
Thanks ... it's the short, P/N 990A0-75012 for the backrest, P/N 990A0-75010 for the brackets. Not cheap $$$, but definitely not cheap quality either! As for me, I don't really like shields; I wear a full-face helmet so it's not much of an issue.

The one complaint I have about the styling of the M50 is the Chrome piece that goes up the side of the rear fender..and the sissybar mounts make it look so much better. I'm definately getting one too...and some saddle bags thatt either install without a crossover strap or that will install under the rear seat...anyone have some pics of their saddlebags and opinions of why they chose a particular set??
I would have preferred that fender trim be blacked out (alone with my sissybar and brackets). But, have'nt seen it that way so who knows, maybe I'd change my mind. Anyway, regarding the saddle bags ... I saw this post earlier; the way these bags mount is a definite plus ... go here to see the post and click on the pic links in the first thread.
