New 2018 Van Van Owner in Idaho!
I just bought a new 2018 Suzuki 200 Van Van!
It's my 2nd motorcycle, sitting next to my humble 1981 Honda 110 trail bike. The Van Van is such a beautiful bike. I sat on it and I knew instantly, "this feels right".
I was looking for something that could on/off road, go at least 60mph (but not too much faster), short seat height, quiet, comfortable seat for a passenger (my wife or kids), and has a retro look. I plan to use it for short street commutes, exploring paved country roads, camping, and light to moderate off-roading trail riding. There's no used market for them in my area.
The Van Van was really the only choice!
I've put 50 miles on it so far (it's cold to ride in Idaho right now!) I'm excited to join this group because I plan to modify the bike a bit, and want to see how others use it too.
