I did hear it run it sounds awesome.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

I may be picking up a honda cm400t for a good price. Seems like a good sized bike that can do highway and light enough to have fun around town.

cm400t - Hondamatic right? they don't seem bad, I've known a few people who owned them. I feel like they are a forgotten bike because you can get them fairly cheap... wonder when their value will finally sore

The CM400T isnt an automatic. They are cool bikes.

The value may not soar, but they have held a steady value for yrs, the auto have an "a" designator" vs "t" for the manual transmission ones.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

I dunno many bikes the value went up on, but you can always find good deals on used stuff and clean them up for a normal deal sale to get some bonus spend $. honestly tho, i'm almost never selling bikes for the money - always the space. the having one good bike instead of a garage full of shit actually sounds pretty tempting even though i'll never actually get there.

ditto for me too Born. I just want to wrench and ride... granted I'm more about riding these days when I get a moment.

I like wrenching in the winter, I try to keep a few good runners in case one breaks down. Cant figure out why the lights are so dim on my CM185. I came home one night as it was getting dark and when I got to the last leg it was dark in the wooded hills and I could barely see. I checked the values on all of the electrical components before I put it together and cleaned all of the electrical connections. The starter works fine and I get full 6V and more when its running. I replaced the headlight and battery. Other than that she's a good runner.

Sick. Must feel good.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

Yea its sweet. Its real smooth considering its a single. I have to adjust the shifter, bars and controls to fit me. Hoping for good weather tomorrow to take a good ride on it.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

haha, I saw that pick and immediately thought, oh, I didn't realize he lived in new England too.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

Yea thats the end of Main St. in Essex, about as English as you can get in the US.

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

It is a good looking bike. The counter balanced bigger singles are very smooth. I am sure you will have many happy miles on that bike.

As for the Honda 450 automatics. Always wanted to play with one. Interesting bikes. There is one in my area but no title so no deal these days.

Anyhow... Nice bike be safe and enjoy!

Re: Suzuki TU250, Yay or Neh?

It really is butter smooth, after riding 100 miles and things starting to wear in, I can say that the build quality of the bike is top notch. It is a little heavy and Im sure that takes a hit on performance but it sure helps to give a more stable ride on the back roads that I ride on. It has good low end torque, real forgiving if pulling out of a tight corner may have needed a downshift, it just pulls steady through.

I am curiuos too about the CM400A. I like the style, exceot for the stepped seat. I had a CB400 as my sole bike for 8 years, it was awesome.
