Got a new bike
May 24, 2009 at 6:57 pm #2887
Been a while guys since I posted. So I traded in my VStar 650 and got a Boulevard M50.
Man I felt the difference what a 100lbs can do on a bike, but she handles great. Definitely not a beginner bike though she is on the “low” end of midline cruiser (according to motorcycle.com). Big difference having EFI and the 805CC just feels great. The bike is an even balance of power and agility in my opinion. It has been called as a sports bike on a cruiser body, as it utilizes the same technologies of the Suzuki “Gixxers”.
One week old and already have 400 miles on it.
I already started modding it: Race Stripes, Black Air Box, partial baffle plate drillouts, and I have Saddlemen Profiler and ISO grips on the way.

I read that and first thought was…ut oh… lol.
Nice looking bike…probly one of the better Zuk’s I’ve seen. I looked at them when I looked for my 9 but wasn’t sold on it…the headlight bezel was just a no go for me. I see you already gotten a start on the punisher theme to….
Oh got a link for you (and anyone else) to help with that:May 24, 2009 at 8:57 pm #18916wbsprudelsParticipant
Awesome! I’ve got the cousin to your bike, a C50. I have about 2k on mine and love it.
But, holy crap, you get a new bike about as often as I get a haircut. Isn’t this your third in less than 6 months?May 24, 2009 at 9:54 pm #18917
LOL close – 3 bikes in 8 months….but not going to get another one any time soon……years probably. Not at all rich, but I broke even on the last two trade ins….
I don’t have a car…so its my main transport.May 25, 2009 at 4:59 pm #18928DaggerParticipant
Say it ain’t so! You left the V-Star family??? See what happens when I’m not around. All hell breaks loose!
Just givin’ ya a hard time.. Looks like a fun bike.. But yeah.. Slow down on the trade-ins! lol Did you check out the V-Star 950’s or 1100’s? Anyways.. Was supposed to pick up my Roadliner last night but the guy got stuck in traffic and now I have to wait until tonight to get it
Well I’m glad to hear you’re still safe and having fun riding.

Hey Dagger…yea the EFI is great on the M50. I did check out the 950s but I decided to go completely different with the M50. Post some Roadliner pics when you get it.
Yep almost 9K miles in 8 months and still safeMay 26, 2009 at 8:36 pm #18955EliasParticipant
Nice Boulevard! That is definitely one of my favorite looking cruisers. I like the blacked out look, especially those wheels. CongratsMay 30, 2009 at 2:00 pm #19078DaggerParticipant
