After debadging all but the tank (quite like to see guys looking to find the make and even though Suzuki is there, microscopic under Intruder, they never find it!) I decided today to cover up the yoke 'S' which has always annoyed me!

So before, it looked like this:

Fake yoke badge cover Badge

Now with a repair washer and sawn off bolt dome head, all held in place with silicone to mimic a bolt-on cover,

it now looks like this:

Fake yoke badge cover DSCN2173

All removable of course (no doubt one day in the future I shall return the whole bike to stock ready for resale) but to the casual eye just looks like part of the bike. True Intruderites of course will spot it but if it fools most of the bikers I meet, that will do me!

Clever idea, that's the last Suzuki badge I have left on my bike now.
I also like the fact that people look at my bike and ask what is it. We do so much to our bikes to personalise them that I like the mystery to the common eye. Most people that ask what is it are still clueless even when you tell them. I usually say now that it's a VL800 and stand there in amazement when their next question is what CC is it.

I don't have that on my M50. I haven't debadged mine but most people still can't work out that it is a Suzuki. That includes a few riders of the American brand.

Thats cause most people that ask know nothing about bikes & just come up with a cruiser name that they know
