1982 Suzuki GS850G
Best machine on the road
Joining gear on rear drive, teeth worn down, had to replace gear for $92.00.
This is by far the most comfortable bike I ever owned, not to mention its reliability. I owned a 1982 GS850G and lost it in a fire. I bought the above Kawi and had it for a year.
I was unhappy with its physical size and found the 82 Suzi online. I traded the Kawi (a 95) for the 82 and have been riding it for over 7 years.
The 5.8 gallon tank is a great asset. I get 45-49 MPG. The biggest thing to do is change the oil and adjust the valves every 4K. Do this and you will ride forever.
I doubt I will ever sell this bike. Why would I, it's been trouble free since I've owned it. Best machine on the road. It will always get you home...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Totally agree, best machine to be harnessed by man... I had a clean 79 one that I eventually turned into a café racer... twas my best friend until she was stolen from outside my apartment... but please don't fret, I'm actually back in the market for another... maybe keep it original or maybe a bobber conversion.
Anyway, safe riding to you and you friends... greetings from Ireland.
