Default Three week old bike!

Going on my third week with a new S50 Suzuki motorcycle. 210 miles so far, weather in Oregon is not always the best for riding. It is getting better though. Rode for the first time at night last night and I enjoy the cool wind, like in the early morning with the sun coming up. This is my first motorcycle in about 8 years. I'm 54 so I thought it is time to enjoy riding before it is too late. This is my 6th bike and possibly my last. I think it will last, it appears to be built well.

Picked up my first new Suzuki since 1979 (DR370). Traded in '02 Sportster (my second new one since 1993) on C50T cause HD dealer said they didn't have room for it on the floor (to trade on new Electraglide Standard). Guess times are tough for them? Found my way to local shop and got two toys (LT250/Ozark) for less than a FL.
Love my new ride.
Didn't have to upgrade for anything. Didn't have to pay "the Harley tax" to get it to perform a little better.
Great touring value for the money. Riding for a month now and ready for first service. Looking forward to long riding season.
Anybody wanna trade something for a healthy collection of HD branded t-shirts? I'll probably be shot wearing them on my new ride.
Happy trails!

Congratulations on your new bike! I have a question, are the valves hydraulic, and can you reach the oil filter and plug without a centerstrand? I'm thinking of trading my bike for either a S50 or Kaw Vulcan 750.
