So I've decided on a gs500 for my first bike. Just wondering if any particular year models stand out as the best or worst? I vaguely remember reading there were some issues with the 2007 models but that's about all I know. So if anyone has recommendations on this I'd be grateful. Also, is it worth getting the front forks done regardless of year model? The most common criticism of these bikes I hear are that they are very soft up front. Is this true of all year models? Cheers, Ben.
