Em’s new ride – Suzuki TU250X

DSC00858

My girlfriend Em recently picked up a new learner bike, a 2012 Suzuki TU250X as an upgrade from her Postie (Honda CT110). Last weekend, we took the opportunity of some nice Canberra winter weather – for a change – to go for a ride together out to Uriarra Crossing, behind Belconnen.

It was a gentle 70km return journey, generally idling along the backroads at about 80km/hr. I haven’t ridden the Suzuki too much yet, but it seems to be a very sweet little bike with light controls, a slick gear change and smooth revving engine. You really seem to sit on top of it – like a rocking horse – which I find disconcerting after my KLR with it’s big, high bars.

All the best with your new ride dear Em xo Enjoy the pics.
