I had two, an 1100, and an 1150. They felt nice and stable, but also really long.

Although I don't have a GS at present, I hold a fondness for these bikes, me and my best friend got a pair of 550's when we graduated college and had a few adventures on them.

My GS

This is my GS850G, I bought it a year ago and have spent most of that time restoring one piece at a time. Just finishing up a top overhaul on the engine then it's going to be logging lots-o-miles this Spring and Summer. I have a R1100RT that I love and it performs flawlessly but the "GS" has character and I enjoy spending time on it.

I started riding last year. This is my first bike - 2006 Suzuki GS500F. I bought it with about 1700 miles on it; it has almost 5500 now. Here's a blurry picture from sometime last summer.



I'm looking to upgrade now, probably to a cruiser. We'll keep this one around for around town riding and for the kids to use when they visit.

I picked up this GSX750 for 800 bucks 2 weeks before my friend and I were planning a serious ride into Canada. It never skipped a beat, and since then I've been doing my best to keep it running and looking good. I recently removed all the shitty silver spray paint the PO used on the cases and painted the body and tank.

On the trip, in touring mode. I built custom panniers for it.



And now, after some cosmetic and mechanical attention. Note the leaking head gasket!

I was tempted to go look at that thing. I didn't know it ran, did you get them down from the $3000 price?

interesting story:
the bike was advertised about a month ago.didn't sell and the owner traded it to the guy i bought it from for a debt owed. the new owner has a kawasaki zx11 turbo and campaigns a gs1100 drag bike. he got the bike running and re-listed it on cl. i talked to him for about a half an hour and the guy seemed to know what he was talking about, or at least had the right answers. he wasn't interested in keeping the bike, just re-couping the money he was out of. i bought it on the blind, but just a cool period piece i couldn't pass up. will have it in the next few days....
