Thanks for such a great forum. Been reading quite a bit, preparing to become a Intruder owner. I have been riding bikes all my life. Last year I bought a Honda Shadow 600 to get back into riding. I quickly ourgrew it, saved some money and just yesterday purchased a 2003 Suzuki Intruder 1500LC. It's going to take some getting used to, as it's been a while since I've riden a heavy bike. Loved the ride home, as well as into work this morning! Boy have I missed riding! Glad to be here!
