2005 Suzuki GS500F
I enjoy riding it
After riding some Chinese scooters that can accelerate up to 60mph, I needed something that I could take on the highway. So I earned my motorcycle license and purchased a naked Suzuki 550L.
I actually still have this bike, but I was able to buy another Suzuki -- the 500F. It looks like a sport bike, but the handlebars are slightly higher than a 600. My 500F is great. I just had to do some routine maintenance on it in order for it to ride well. On one particular ride on the highway, I did lose power, but after doing some basic carb cleaning, changing the spark plugs and replacing the air filter -- the bike is running fine.
I'd recommend this bike to anyone who likes to ride just for the sake of riding. This is not a sport bike, but I have cruised on the highway at 90-95 mph without the bike shaking or anything. I bought my bike for $1800, about $600 below KBB values.
Hope this review helps! Keep riding!
