The ghost-rider cometh friends. Take a look at the new all-white and blue pearl Suzuki Boulevard. Myself, can't help but think of that old cow-poke who "went ridin' out"... yup, this is the bike for the white sheep of the flock, for the individual who reckons there's enough black Harleys in the wild.
If you've got the cojones for it, Suzuki's brand new 2009 big-bore cruiser is available now. With white livery and chrome finish accented by a pearl blue centre stripe, the limited-edition 2009 Suzuki Boulevard M109R will make a statement when it joins the pack. No risk there.
Under the generous saddle is a potent 109 cubic-inch, liquid-cooled, V-Twin power plant - the largest piston to be found in any reciprocating gasoline engined mass-produced passenger car or motorcycle. It's also running the widest tyre ever used on a Suzuki motorcycle, a 240mm rear tyre delivering power to the tarmac to the aural accompaniment of the massive two-into-one-into-two, stainless steel, chromed exhaust.
Cobras, if you feel you can't walk up to the bar and order a glass of milk (while everyone is chugging on Jim Bean), this might not be the bike for you. But it's great value for a monster-bore cruiser: the limited edition 2009 Suzuki Boulevard M109R (VZR1800Z) with a two-year, unlimited kilometre warranty is available for $19,490 RRP (plus the usual on-road Government theft charges).
Ride free friends. Stay clear of that "mighty herd of red-eyed cows". The Dirk.
