Cool New rider on '08 M50

Hello fellow riders!

I'm a new rider with not so much experience on motorcycles ... and quite a lot on manual cars and bicycles
Recently purchased a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard M50 and I gotta say I love this bike a lot

Queens, NYC

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

If you haven't yet, take a rider training course. It's worth the price of admission.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

Hey people!

Thanks for the warm welcome, my bad I didn't subscribed to this thread, checked just now, warm and fuzzy feeling here
Also, I took the MSF course hehe, that's how I learned to ride properly ... I wouldn't dare to ride in NYC traffic without that knowledge and skill ...

Take care!

even with some good skills..I don't see myself ever riding in NY City...wonder if one takes a cruise in the central park area...do the horses share the road?

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Greetings from Indiana.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
