|OlHossCanada||They are nice looking bikes. I was looking at them a year ago, before I found my Vulcan. I hope you and your folks enjoy many miles going down the highway together.|

There are sub-forums for the S83 and the S50. Although obviously not as good as our forum, it's a pretty good forum. The S50 is a nice Cruiser, but it does require a valve adjustment about every 4k miles. I'm mechanically challenged, so opted to not get this bike.
I wish you and your Dad safe and happy riding!

My neighbor and riding buddy has an 06- C50 Boulevard which I believe has the same engine but a bit different bike design... It is fuel injected and he gets very good gas milage 50-58mpg and has had no problems that I know of other than regular maintenece... He has been happy with his C50 is about all I can say, I just don't care for the Classic style of the C Boulevards myself, and lean more to the S style...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

All shaft drive bikes should have the splines lubed as part of a maintenance schedule.
I would think there should be a group similar to this one (although none could be better than the Vulcan group!!) somewhere on the net.
And I hear ya about PA weather. We just had snow, then rain, then freezing rain, then more snow!!

I convinced my dad to buy a bike. It is a 2006 Suzuki S50 Boulevard with about 6000 miles on it. It is shaft drive, liquid cooled, carburated, 800 cc or 50 c.i. V-twin engine with I think 6 valves. Do you guys know anything about this bike? As in what failures its prone to. Should we lube the splines. etc.
I think he will also be getting a sissy bar or backrest for my mom or maybe a whole new seat. Hopefully some pipes too.
Enjoy the pics.
Now I cant wait till spring in Pennyslvania.
