    Well, I have my Suzuki M50 listed for sale all over the place: Ebay, Craigslist, and several bike forums including this one. I have been in love with the Raider since I saw a pic on the internet months before they hit the dealerships. And when I finally seen it in person I thought my mind was made up, I wouldn't even LOOK at another bike.
    Well, yesterday I went into the dealer to get a spanner wrench for my bike, and after drooling all over the new '09 Raiders (man, the paint on that red S is smokin hot!), I glance over and see an '07 blue with ghost flames, Warrior with Samson shorty pipes (can't remember the model name).
    I've seen the Warriors in the dealerships before and it seems like I always dismissed them because of that god-awful pipe they have on them. I didn't know much about them and don't know anyone that has one, but this bike looked friggen PERFECT with those pipes on her!
    And now I'm kinda glad that I still have to sell my bike first because I'm not sure what my next bike will be but I'm pretty sure it will be one of these 2. I also looked at the M109 and also the m90......thank God I hadn't just eatin.

    Anywho, I know that no-one can tell me what bike is the best for me but feel free to give your .02 anyway, I don't even care if it's a biased opinion. lol

    Thanks, Casey

    I have a Raider, and 2 friends with the Warrior. Neither of the Warriors have stock pipes, one V and H, and on with BUB. The BUb’s are loud but they look great and maybe wake dead people. They both look good and ride good. Ones lowered and the other isn’t, the lowered warrior looks better but the stock rides better. You won’t be disappointed with either bike Raider or Warrior. Good luck and good ridding.

    If I remember right, he said $9-9.5K for that '07 Warrior with 4,000 miles on it, that sound about right? I know that's right in line with NADA but how does it sound to you?

    go with your heart don't let a few grand make you regret your ride,which ever you pick from those 2 i don't think you'll regret but don't take the chance

    Your Raider looks a hell of a lot like a Warrior.
