  Suzuki GSX-R1000K9 Road Test

If there was ever a bike that's easy to misunderstand it's the latest GSX-R1000. It's specification sheet and, perhaps more importantly its ‘GSX-R' name tag, give the impression of a beast that only experts should apply for. The reality is far different, and the Suzuki can be ridden safely by far more people, and in a much wider variety of circumstances than you'd think.

It's more real world identity isn't that obvious from a quick glance of the bike's racy-looking style. Garish and bright coloured bodywork also has the silhouette of a competition bike. And first impressions suggest more than a few miles in its seat would lead to some fairly serious physical and mental strain. Add the fact that the GSX-R is already competing well in the WSB championship and few would challenge the view that the 1000 has been designed with one priority in mind - speed, and lots of it.

Swing your leg over it though, and nestle into the relatively roomy riding position and your opinion is bound to change. There's no need whatsoever to make any sacrifices to comfort. Neither limbs nor neck feel they've been asked to contort themselves in any way to fit the bike. OK, it's no Goldwing, but neither is it something only a gymnast would feel at home on. I personally would be happy to ride all the way to Scotland and back on the Suzuki. I'd prefer it if the journey was predominantly dry and I didn't need to carry too much luggage. Though in saying that, the fairing does at least give some decent enough shelter and a tank bag could swallow a fair few essentials to make the trip more bearable. For a long single day's ride, only the most luxury-needy would find fault. There's even a chance to adjust the two-position footrests to aid the civility further.

Civilised is not an apt description for the pillion accommodation mind you. High footrests force much knee-bending, and the seat is too small to give the same support as the rider's. Its high elevation means the passenger towers above the relatively prone rider catching the wind and making the whole experience one to forget, even after little.

However, that's about it when it comes to criticism of the bike's refinement. And that's pretty much the case however you ride it. Suzuki's designers and engineers definitely had you, the road rider, in mind just as much as the likes of BSB star Sylvain Guintoli when they set about building this bike autel maxidas ds808.

The engine is one very good example of this. Of course as a 1000cc sportsbike, unsurprisingly it has huge power, with an output claimed to be over 180bhp. In the right circumstances that's enough to send the Suzuki to a top speed of over 180mph. But the beauty of the in-line four cylinder motor is the way that horsepower is produced - in a very smooth and linear fashion. With perfect fuelling to aid the good manners, the engine is as progressive and user-friendly as it gets. It's entirely up to the rider to decide just how quickly he wants to gain speed. With the right sort of discipline there's absolutely no need to feel intimidated by this bike. Only if you're irresponsible with it will it stand a chance of biting you. The only thing to be wary of is the deceptive nature of the acceleration. Being as unstressed as it is, the engine will pull cleanly in top gear from as little as 2000rpm, and it doesn't take long before the digital speedo's figures start to climb high and fast without you realising it. Keeping a beady eye on the numbers it's displaying is crucial.

Though there's plenty of real excitement from using the engine a bit harder, it really is a joy to use it in a more relaxed fashion too. The motor has tons of torque and can be kept at lower rpm by short-shifting through the gearbox and yet still produce more than enough speed. Adding to its choice of delivery is the three-stage power switch which alters the mapping of the engine to reduce its potential should it worry you in any way. I personally think it's a bit of a novelty really, as the engine is already well-mannered enough to be governed by the use of the throttle alone. But there may well be others who appreciate it more. The good thing is the choice. Whichever way you decide to use the engine, there'll be nothing the chassis can't handle more than capably.

With overall dimensions mid-way between the Honda Fireblade and Yamaha R1, the Suzuki is a light and very easy bike to master and doesn't need much in the way of physical persuasion to push it through corners. Nice light steering aids this sort of move and the chassis geometry helps you to hold your chosen line or tighten it still further more than readily.

With excellent support and feedback from the suspension, confidence remains high at all times. Not many riders have greater ability than this bike. The Suzuki's new BPF Big Piston Forks are especially competent and their design allows a nice supple and comfortable ride over bumpy surfaces yet plenty of support when they're being tested by hard braking. They're more compliant when they're loaded by greater speed or cornering forces, though with such a wide range of adjustment, including high and low speed compression adjusters, few riders won't be able to tune the forks to suit them best. The new 2009 Kawasaki ZX-6R is the only other production bike to feature BPF forks at the moment, though I'd expect them fitted to many more machines in the near future autel maxisys ms906 review.

They allow you to use the best of the powerful but predictable new ‘monobloc' brake calipers thanks to their more finely controlled action which gives the front tyre a better chance of finding the best grip available. And like the engine, though the stoppers' performance potential is high, thanks to the friendly way it's delivered, there's no need to worry about trying to sample a lot of it.

It's yet another aspect of the bike which shows very clearly than the GSX-R is more than just a one trick pony. Sportsbikes have come a long way in terms of their versatility in recent years and the Suzuki is a very good example of this. Its balance and predictability make it suitable for a variety of roles and certainly shouldn't be thought of as a savage unusable animal liable to land you in trouble on the first ride.

  Steering and Suspension System Auto Parts

Most car owners and drivers do not know a lot about their car's steering and suspension system. Suspension, when discussing cars, refers to the use of front and rear springs to suspend a vehicle's "sprung" weight. The springs used on today's cars and trucks are constructed in a variety of types, shapes, sizes, rates, and capacities. Types include leaf springs, coil springs, air springs, and torsion bars. These are used in sets of four for each vehicle, or they may be paired off in various combinations and are attached by several different mounting techniques.

The suspension system also includes shocks and/or struts, and sway bars. Back in the earliest days of automobile development, when most of the car's weight (including the engine) was on the rear axle, steering was a simple matter of turning a tiller that pivoted the entire front axle autel maxisys ms906. When the engine was moved to the front of the car, complex steering systems had to evolve. The modern automobile has come a long way since the days when "being self-propelled" been enough to satisfy the car owner. Improvements in suspension and steering, increased strength and durability of components, and advances in tire design and construction have made large contributions to riding comfort and to safe driving.

The suspension system has two basic functions, to keep the car's wheels in firm contact with the road and to provide a comfortable ride for the passengers Autel MaxiSys MS908. A lot of the system's work is done by the springs. Under normal conditions, the springs support the body of the car evenly by compressing and rebounding with every up-and-down movement. This up-and-down movement, however, causes bouncing and swaying after each bump and is very uncomfortable to the passenger. These undesirable effects are reduced by the shock absorbers.

  2010 Buick Lacrosse VS. Preconceptions

Buick has been a mainstay of the American Auto Industry for GM for many decades. It has always been known as a good American vehicle for the masses Autel MaxiDiag MD802. Its stylings were never over the top, its power always reliable, and its safety features compliant. It has been the go to car for people who were looking for a good safe reliable American made car. This has unfortunately led to its low sales over the past few years because people's minds are thinking past the old-reliable stand by. Buick's have been known to be synonymous with grandparents, and hard candy. Over the past 2 years however, after the great GM closures and bailouts, Buick has begun to think outside their comfortably boring box and stepped into the high performance and great stylings category. Buicks are no longer just for the ‘folks'. The 2010 Lacrosse Luxury sedan is flipping buyer's preconceptions on their ears. Offering all wheel drive, advanced technologies and safety features and stylings which are reminiscent of retro blended with modern. There is a renaissance happening and the Buick Lacrosse is at the top of the pile attracting new buyers to their dealerships.

The Buick Lacrosse, or Allure in Canada, was unveiled last season with great sighs of relief from the American Auto Industry. It brought the stylings and performance of European competition, into an American car. It is very competitive in the ‘premium mid-luxury' division. Said to be comparable to the Lexus ES and GS, and the Volvo S60 and S80, the Buick Lacrosse will knock your socks off with out the extra cost.

The Lacrosse is the second generation auto from the GM Buick division. The name was originally inspired from a 2008 Buick concept car. Its name, sporty in nature, was developed to reference the sportiness of the new model to a younger more active consumer. Since then, the second generation Lacrosse has been tweaked and updated by worldwide engineering and design firms. Still American but with an international twist, the Lacrosse is available with a 2.4 liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine. The combination of the direct injection engine with the six speed automatic engine will reap 30 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in town.

Buick is aiming its sights on the luxury market with this new Lacrosse. Since its conception, Buick has over the past few decades tried to restyle its look from the ‘wallflower' look of the LeSabre, to the ‘crazy fish-faced' Riviera. The Lacrosse has the moniker of the most handsome Buick ever built. The shape is modern with touches of retro from the 1930s and 40s, for example the waterfall grill, and the ‘spear' detail which begins at the headlights swoops over the fenders, and winds itself around to the rear door handles. It also has the old fashioned ventiports which are non-functional but very stylish.

The Buick Lacrosse is the modern interpretation of luxury. It was hard for Buick to define its role in the past because of conflicting GM models autel maxisys ms906. But with the General Motors Company squaring down its output, Buick has been given some breathing room to create brand loyalty again. As well, this new Lacrosse is bargaining on bringing in the younger consumer to buy. Get yourself down to the dealership and take a test drive. Your preconceived notions of your grandparents in their old Buick will definitely be rewritten.
