1980 Suzuki GS850
Best Bike EVER. But you wouldn't want one, leave them for me to buy
Stator & regulator broke the year I bought it.
Brake pads replaced a few times.
Rear tire difficult to replace due to rusted exhaust mounting bolts.
Battery a few times due to broken stator.
Aside from the charging system this bike is pretty solid, no major repairs needed.
Excellent touring bike. It's been Coast (NW) to Coast (NE) to Coast (SW) of North America, and my commuter bike for work for 7 years.
Please bug Suzuki to reissue this bike, I would buy it without hesitation (note speedometer cable broke at 54000 km and has not been fixed properly, this bike has been well over 100,000 kilometers with NO MAJOR WORK NEEDED!!!)
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
