    Wonder if this will have an affect on Suzuki bikes at all? They are already tough to find....

    Suzuki sure has had a tough time the past couple of years, I was lucky to get a 2011 from what I am hearing. I do feel for those people over there and hope that there is a silver lining hidden somewhere.

    Let me guess the part of the factory where they make four strokes has been saved but they two stroke area was demolished lol. That would be what would happen probably.

    Heard on news this morning of certain Japanese plants shutting down "indefinately" at this time. I wonder how this will affect the dirt bike industry, bikes, parts etc.? And if this puts the brakes on Japanese bike developement what will be the long term effects on that as well? (Certainly good for KTM I would think).
