I have been looking at some bikes and especially GS500f's. Yesterday I drove down to Wollongong to have a look at a bike and decided to buy it. Put a deposit down on it and will be picking it up in the next few days. The bike has only done 10,000km and has service history documented in the service manual. Already has the 12,000km service done and has new rear tyre due to puncture. The bike looks brand new basically. Also, the rego runs out at the end of January and he is putting 12 months more on it for me. Also, since my entire riding experience consists of the Pre learners he is riding it up to Horsnby for me where I can then ride it home from there. I am not too keen to ride it from Wollongong, through western Sydney to Hornsby. In a car no problem, but not for my first ever really ride having never ridden a gs500 before.
