1991 Suzuki GSX1100G
Comfy as a couch, pulls your arms out of their sockets if you're not careful
I had to clean the carbs this year (2010), as the idle circuit had finally clogged on one of the cylinders, affecting idle and just off-idle performance. This thing runs like new again now.
The choke cable broke recently, and I had to replace the beautiful chrome knob with a black rubber one from another Suzuki model - reducing the chrome quotient by 3%.
Center stand bent with use, but was under recall back in '94 when I had mine replaced for free.
This is the best retro-looking UJM out there. Nothing else has the complete package: disc brakes everywhere, shaft drive, standard riding position, torque coming out its ears, air cooling with the looks that entails. If anyone anywhere made another bike like it, I'd buy it. But no one has.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought a used '92 three years ago and I am enjoying it. Lots of torque, so smooth and powerful, in fact very powerful - you need to grab onto those handle bars when you open up the throttle riding on the freeway or else you'll be left behind. I like the shaft drive, air cooled engine, the alloy wheels, and the disc brakes on both wheels. I hope Suzuki will manufacture this bike again with fuel injection.
