1982 Suzuki GS1100GK from Canada
Best bike I've ever owned
Typical Suzuki GS charging issues, but nothing a new stator and reg/rec can't fix.
This bike kicks ass and comes back for more! Sure it's a bit heavy weighing in at almost 600lbs, but the torque and power more than compensate. I ride like a bit of a hooligan and this bike can take it! Even though it's a bit on the heavy side, it's still nimble and responsive. Highways are a breeze and overtaking anyone in 5th gear with a twist of the wrist is pure pleasure. The torque and power delivery is really surprising. This thing likes to fly. Regularly cruise at 140kmh.
Electronics are a bit dodgy, but a new stator and reg/rec will fix that. It will keep going regardless of any electrical issue though, it just doesn't stop. No oil? no problem... it'll get you home.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
