Suzuki Riders... Where are you???

18 posts in this topic

Okay, there seems to be a few posts about Polaris riders click here. Kawasaki riders click here....

Well here it is... SUZUKI RIDERS... CLICK HERE and tell us about your machine... smilesmile

I am a proud owner of a 1994 Suzuki 300 King Quad 4x4. I use it everyday on the farm, go roaming around with it, and use it for ice fishing. Great investment for what I use it for...

Okay lets hear about yours..

I guess I'll put in my info:

2005 Suzuki Kingquad 700 with 2400 miles of plowing,hunting,exploring,driveway dragging,firewood hauling,deer skinning and hanging, and once and awhile pleasure riding. So far so good, I haven't had to turn a wrench on it yet, and don't plan on it either.

06 Vinson 500 best machine I have ever owned. Dragged a large bull moose a mile down a trail and didn't even break a sweat. A friend of mine has a 2000 Vinson that has been ridden hard and it is still going strong.

I just bought a brandnew 2008 holdover King Quad 400. Something about the price drew me in.

07 Kingquad 700. Love it. Pulled some big tree stumps out of the revein. 60" moose plow made snow removal a breeze. I've come to the conclusion that it loves ice fishing wink.

We are here....I just posted yesterday about Suzuki outboards and how Suzuki is an under appreciated brand.

I ride a 2006 Kingquad 700. Great machine...fast...lightweight...sporty feel.

My Polaris buddies say..."wow..that is a fun sporty bike to ride"

Grizzly 660 buddies Holy Shatis...that thing is fast.

I too push tons of snow with my 60" county plow...what a blast.

Great looking ride. No doubt, when they're set up for it, they are a great ice fishing tool.

I agree that I think that Suzuki is an under appreciated brand... Even though I have an older machine it is still a great running machine.

Ive looked at the new machines and the price is right for what you are getting I believe...

1995 250 Quadrunner. Maybe 250 miles. Works for me to drag deer and easily fits in the truck bed. Interested in a non-current year King Quad 400 though.

Last spring I traded in a 1997 300 King Quad - got twice the amount for it I was expecting and left the dealer with a 07' 700 King Quad -

I loved my 97' but love the 07' even more

Have riden other machines, but nothing compares to the King Quad.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
