Amazingly good performance for next to no cost
It needed a new battery.
The switch that won't allow you to start the bike without having the clutch in, broke when I dropped the bike. I bypassed it.
This is my first bike and it's fantastic.
I bought the bike on a whim for 350 dollars. It had not been running for a year, but the owner promised me he would get it running and deliver it, so I bought it.
Nothing major is wrong with it. It looks like it\'s only a few years old, not 25. The paint sparkles like new, it's got great pickup, goes faster than I need it to, and has no maintenance cost. Plus, there is a fantastic online community of GS owners at www.thegsresources.com.
When I first got the bike I wished that it was the cruiser model, but it was the sport model. However, I put some cafe-raceresque bars on it, and now it looks great.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
