So, for a long, long time I have been riding Suzuki Savage 650/S40's and have had an itch to buy a Fury. Over the years I have been doing mods on the Suzuki's almost always driven by the Fury as the inspiration, with a bit of higher handle bar stretch for good measure. I own 3 Suzuki's, 2 riders and a 3rd which is a chopper project looking to get traction this winter. I finally pulled the trigger and bought a 2010, blue Fury yesterday. Blue metallic was what made it happen.

Bike has the standard exhaust upgrade but beyond that it is basically stock. My plan to ride it as is until the spring and go from there. Today was a bunch of low speed, first and second gear around my shop on roads in industrial park to get a feel for it all. New Jersey DMV has an appointment for me to get title and tags for next week, so until then no open road rides.

Looking forward to life on to forum and getting to know you all. As for me I am located at the Jersey Shore near Sandy Hook, my shop is just outside Asbury Park in Ocean Twp, N.J. Though i go by a handle SoC (long story) my name is actually Bill.

Hey Bill, welcome from Denver.

I first sat on one when they came out. When they started dropping the price I finally got mine. A 2013 that was still in the crate in 2015, for a song! You will love the bike, and welcome to the forum.

Thanks everyone, the days until my appt. at DMV here in Jersey next week to get my title, tags and registration are getting longer with the great weekend weather we are having here. Would have been a perfect couple days to put some miles under it.

I am one who errs on the side of caution when riding, anything that helps improve the visibility of the bike and me is ok as long as not too much. Almost all bikes look better without reflectors, but at night they can make a big difference in profile view of the bike.

Looking forward to finally getting it on road next Tuesday. Until then I have my Savage.

Congrats on the Fury! I recently bought a 2020 ( a gift from my wife for Father's Day) in Pearl Hawkseye Blue. I almost bought a Fury back in 2010 but ended up riding away on a 2008 Honda VTX1800T because the dealership gave me a sweetheart deal on it. Apparently it wasn't a popular model, only 2 miles on it and nearly 2 years old. I loved the power but it always seemed just a little top-heavy, perhaps why it wasn't very popular.
So far I'm absolutely loving the Fury. So far I've added a Memphis Shades Speed Demon sportshield and a Clutch Pull Relief from Glen's VTX Garage. The latter made a HUGE difference in the effort needed to maintain friction zone with the clutch in stop and go traffic. The former made a huge difference in highway riding and the amount of fatigue from fighting the wind in my chest for long rides.

Again, thanks for all the welcome. I had a snafu with dealer paper work across state lines form NY to NJ, so title transfer and registration did not happen yet. Been riding it around the industrial park where my shop is, itching to get plates and out on the road. Hopefully will have dealer plates for Friday.

I am not so internet updated and savvy, so it will take some time for me to get more integrated and online on the forum.
