I bought a 1998 vz800 Marauder on e-Bay about 4 years ago. Since then I have added lots of chrome additions and have just added footboards as the final addition. I am sooooooooo pleased I went for the suzuklis and not an over-priced Harley. Acceleration is fantastic and with V&H slashcuts, the sound is amazing. I upgraded the seats to customized leather which makes them a lot more comfortable. A sissy bar also helps the pax stay on board when accelerating.
This bike is outstanding value for money and also holds its value. If you like cruisers - you'll really like this.
