All the talk of replacement CG125 engines flying around at the moment made me decide to hunt down the heritage of my engine - I knew it had Suzuki roots, and after a bit of digging I can say with confidence that it's a Van Van clone. Explains why it's as gutless as a poorly starfish when you go past 50 :lol:

Right, time for another update - and possibly my last, as I now have my big bike and the insurance has run out on the Lowride so it currently lives in my garage. And the last week on the road has been its finest, to be quite honest! My opinion of the bike has changed completely in seven days.

Short version is, I was supposed to be giving my first ever pillion ride after taking the new bike to Cambridge Motorcycles for a general health check. They found something... rather horrible, and so the GS had to stay with them until a new part arrived. I was informed that I wasn't allowed to back out of the ride that afternoon, so the Lowride was called up one last time :lol:

One week on, and the Lowride has clocked up nearly 700 pillion miles. It's as gutless as ever, but no more so than it was when I rode it alone - it really doesn't seem to care about the extra weight. Apparently it was very comfy, and it felt fairly stable from my point of view, so good stuff all round.

And on another note - part availability. I know this is a big concern for Chinese bikes, but the one time I needed parts for the Lowride, they arrived ONE WORKING DAY after I ordered them... whereas the new part for my 14 year old BMW took seven days to arrive. It doesn't make much of a point, but it's interesting none the less.

So in short... the Lowride did me proud in the end. It came through for me when I needed it most, and it's going to be difficult to convince myself to get rid of it now. That'll do, bike. That'll do.
