I totally appreciate people

I totally appreciate people who actually teach or preach about road safety and it's criterias . The bike you ride is also one of my favorite ride of all time , a total Suzuki classic . I had one like yours but had it all covered up with and I had actually changed the whole appearance . But never did I break any rules like some rough riders crew . But great going anyways teaching people about road safety , I hope you'll continue this for a long time .

Maybe, you can help me out with a question. I bought one of these babd boys and it won't run off the choke. I've rebuilt the carbs, got new manifolds, I even downloaded lots of instructions from shared shares search engine http://www.sharedshares.com but nothing helps((((( Maybe, you might have a suggestion? Thank you.

So great to see someone who

So great to see someone who practices what they preach! I love your safety gear -- it actually makes being responsible look pretty rad. Where did you purchase it from? I saw something similar but I haven't gotten around to purchasing it yet.

Thanks for being cool about safety! You are a role model!

Winters in Indiana

I live in Indiana, so commuting via Motorcycle in the winter months is not really an option. (although some people surprise me. . .crazies) Snow, ice, and bikes do not normally mix. I am however an avid rider who is considering commuting via my bike as much as weather allows. Up until now, I have primarily used my bike for recreational purposes. Just wanted to drop in and say that your observations and tips here have been a big part of my decision to give motorcycle commuting a try this spring/summer. Thanks and remember to always keep it shiny side up!

Great Ride

Great ride indeed. It's also cool that you work as a Faculty Advisor to the student motorcycle group. Many young people can confuse a stereotype with real life. Good to see they'll have a role model and a friend with similar interests.
I myself work buying and selling repossessed cars for sale at repossessed car auctions. Then again, these repossessed cars for sale may be cheap but they can't compete with a good bike like yours :)

Inspirational stuff

Wow, it looks very pretty. I like such people who are very conscious about their or other people's safety. They instruct safety tips and follow them too. This Suzuki is just fantastic.

I live in India, so that

I live in India, so that cycling through the winter months is not really an option. (Although some people amazes me ... Locos) of snow, ice, and bicycles that usually do not mix. However, I am an avid pilot who is considering commuting by bike to my time permits. So far, I've used the bike mainly for recreation. I just wanted to come and say that your comments and suggestions here have been an important part of my decision to ride the motorcycle of a chance this spring / summer.
