I like it !

Your bike looks like it has survived a collection of adventures, and is still waiting for more. For the nasty off-road stuff, I have a KTM LC4, so my PD is destined to be a weekend rider, and maybe a few IronButt rides.

Never run out of traction, real estate, and ideas at the same time.

Harrison Billet 6 piston caliper

Made in the UK. Came with the GS I just got. The PO thought is was a nice solution to the braking issue. Nice machine work.

I'm in. This was when I bought my baby last July. It took a couple years of searching to find one of this model and manufacter date near me. She's a classic, but not a museum piece. Riding her hard.

R80G/S With a new lease of life

This a picture of my 1983 R80G/S. We have added Husqvarna 410 front forks, longer swing arm with beefed up frame, HPN tank, different gear ratios and generally restored it for reliability. I really enjoy riding it, it's the best gs I have owned.
