Thumbs up Gs500

The Suzuki GS500. Excellent Starter Bike with decent power for a sport oriented learning curve. Easy and fun to work on.

Woohoo!!!

Now if only my learning curve wasn't so superb! Oh well... bigger bikes all in due time, right?

They are fun. All that shifting and revving made me think I was in my own little race when I rode a friends 500. His was very reliable too, until he crashed it.

An ideal bike for a lst time buyer or as a bike for around town & short runs.
Still it will give one thousands of trouble free miles.

Yeah, but it's easier to park when you can sit on your bike with your feet flat and knees even bent (the only saving grace of my GS at this point)

Even so I've already dropped mine

Had it been a nice new bike I'd have been crying all the way to the insurance desk knowing that my rates would go up and I'd be out the deductable.

On my GS I went - "Damn"

and bought a new brake lever

The case is a bit scratched up but I have plans for it too. Fortunately I dropped it in gravel so it didn't bend anything.

I have a GS500E too. So much power in so little time. I got it up to third gear and looked at the speedometer and it read 55. I almost freaked out. Thankfully with my PreMSF practice runs I havn't dropped it. =)
