Welcome to my blog, these are the ramblings and musings of an (upper) middle aged biker and if you enjoy braais, (barbeques) beers and motorbikes then hopefully you will enjoy what Janet and I do; we do lots of braais, we drink lots of beer and we tour South Africa on our motorbike, which at the moment is a BMW R1200RT.

Suzuki Intruder C1500T

While reading my favourite magazine, BikeSA the other day I came across this picture and it immediately caught my attention. What a lovely looking machine! The 2013 Suzuki Intruder C1500T.
It weighs in at 363kg, has a 1462cc 4 stroke, twin cylinder liquid cooled, Single overhead cam 54 degree Vee twin engine with a 5 speed transmission and an 18 litre fuel tank. This baby will just eat up the open road!
I used to have a Suzuki 1500 twin but I didn't like the three speed gearbox and the small fuel tank, this one however looks right for us and I can imagine that a nice sissy-bar for Janet would complement the good looks.
There was no mention of the price or if it is available in South Africa yet but I'm going to get in touch with the Suzuki dealers in Capetown to find out if there's a demo model - watch this space!

Go well and regards

Hi Dick, yes a bit of a small tank, however the one I had before was even smaller. I would love to test this one and spend a day on it, I think it's such a cool looking bike.

It's a nice looking bike, do I see a cruiser in your future?
Waiting impatiently :-)

Hi George, I don't really think so but I'd like to take it for a ride. I've had one before and I didn't like the riding position, sitting on the base of your spine with your feet out in front you can't lift your butt from the saddle.
