I purchased my Suzuki GS500F, after having a number of sport bikes in the 80's, and Harleys through the 90's & 2000's.
I still think the Harley is a gorgeous machine, however my budget didn't allow for a 20K motorcycle at the moment, so I went back to my roots.
I have found this little Suzuki to be a blast to ride. It handles well, is not too uncomfortable, and delivers surprising performance for a 500.
I know they call it a "starter" sport, but at 41 years old, and a life long rider, it delivers plenty of "pep" to keep my interest. Best bike- on-a-budget I ever owned!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
