Hi! I just bought a '97 Suzuki VS800GLV Intruder back in December with 14k on it. This is my first "big" bike purchase. I was previously riding a Piaggio LT150 but after 4 years it was time to move up - after first convincing my wife I would be a safe rider - and be safer when I ride on the freeway here in far Northern California. I'm 6'1 and the bike is a little cramped if riding it more than a few miles. Fortunately, it came with a foot bar - not a crash bar - mounted ahead of the pipes. I can rest my legs easily on the pegs and it's a much more comfortable ride.

It also came with twin rigid leather saddle bags and a small windscreen! I use it mostly to get to work, a ride of about 13 miles RT and ride it into town for appointments - about 10 miles one way. I intend to take it on longer rides up to 100 miles once I get more used to it. The only issue with this bike is the small fuel tank. I'm going to bring a container with about 1/2 gallon gas so I can really see how far I can go on the main tank and reserve. That being said, there's nothing wrong with fueling every 90 - 100 miles and I need a stretch anyway!

Cheers!

Hello everyone. Thanks for the add :)
Been riding about 50 years... I am 62. I started back when every bike but a Harley shifted on the right and braked on the left... but thankfully, that was standardized. Created some confusion LOL (but it wasn't humorous at the time). In those days the 'dream' bikes were the Vincent Black Shadow.. spoken about in hushed tones of respect and awe.. and the Norton Dunstall. Marlon Brando was the leader of a biker gang in a movie called "The Wild One"... black and white, of course. The Hell's Angels made the news every once and awhile and we could go to the county fair and watch the bikers ride the 'wall of death' riding around the inside a big outdoor 'drum'.. and no muffs on the bikes... pure excitement at every moment. I never asked myself if I was a biker; I just knew it. My folks didn't want me to have a bike, but, like all of you I rode my friends bikes and just waited for my independence. So, at the age of 20, I bought my first house and my first 'big' bike; a Norton 850 Commando. Damn it was .... fast.!! :shock:
So today I ride a 2000 Big Dog Bulldog custom (made in Kansas and all parts 100% made in the USA) with a S&S 107ci and 5 speed Andrews with about 120hp. Yes, even the thought of it makes me smile 8)
Right now it is being re-built from the frame up... and I can hardly wait to ride again... just like the first time.
