Thumbs down

This is a picture i took of my first motorcycle, back in 1990. Man this was an ungodly big bike. A 1981 Suzuki GS500E....


I was so scared of it,.. a terrible "first bike" for an unexperienced 21 year old. I bought it for $475.00 and sold it a year later for $475.00 I dont think i even put more than 2 miles on it in that year!!!

I don't know who you sold it to, but I think I just passed him on the way to work on an inside curve

The bike I saw this morning looks just like that one.

The bike only looked shiny and clean like in the picture until i sold it. The guy that bought it really let it turn into a pile of dung.

If you saw this bike today my guess is youd be evasively dodging the various pieces and parts falling off of it.

I havnt seen it since 1992. But it could very well be in your neighborhood, Will!!! The guy that bought it used to live around there.
