1985 Suzuki GS850G from Australia
I want another one.
Nothing of consequence. Ignition points / capacitor, nothing really.
Did 40,000 Km around Sydney as a motorbike courier. The thing was ultra reliable and built like a train, but fast and easy to flick but around with lots of muscle needed.
So what, good exercise. I was on it for 8-10 hours a day in city traffic with the clock running all the time, and didn't get too tired.
Nearly indestructible - a taxi cut me off at 50kph, I went over the roof and down Elizabeth St, bike destroyed the driver's door. Only a few scratches on the bike and back on the road.
Another time I T-boned a red light runner under full brakes at 20kph, same, a few scratches.
All of the above would have obliterated a current era bike.
Easy to service and work on.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
