250 four-strokes are still better than 250 two-strokes... Case in point... Canadian Nationals

Pastrana left Suzuki.... That's about all you need to know about the brand

Woah... so you haven't watched a SX or MX race since 2005???

Probably something to do with the 31 hours by "Pro rider" thing. That's like 250 hours by your standard vet rider

How's the battery life? I'm mostly worried about running out of battery and then the ride turns into pedalling a 40lb mountain bike with no assist haha. What's "tons of hills" mean to you? To me, a hilly ride is 2,500+ feet of climbing over 15+ miles. ... more »

That's how Suzuki's get holeshots. Meanwhile, other bikes can get them with room temperature 91 pump

Less travel also means the suspension would need to be stiffer to prevent bottoming, which would make seat bouncing harder/less effective.

True. It's because they are still producing the 2008 model in 2020

Does Suzuki also offer 0% financing? Hard to say no to that

Added reply in a thread 2021 RMZ450 7/22/2020 2:04 PM

In my experience, Suzuki bikes have been plenty capable for me. Fast and handles great. But the reliability...ugh. Had to rebuild the transmission twice before the 100 hour mark. Seat bolts stripped out. Sheared a footpeg bolt... how does that even happen??? ... more »

That's peanuts compared to the US deficit

Added reply in a thread Will the nationals actually go ahead? 7/1/2020 9:13 AM

I actually got bored and ran the numbers yesterday, and you are correct. The USA is testing 41% more than the EU (sum of all EU countries). However, the USA also has a 780% increase in positive test results (using 7-day average ending 6/25) compared ... more »
