G'day all, 1st post since joining as have generally found so much to read there was nothing to write! I'm on the lookout for a bike (LAMS) but Minister of Finance, Family Services and War is keeping very close eye on me so I'll be lucky to get away with more than $2K outlay... ](*,) I'm 30yrs old, 6'2" and weigh between 92 and 102kgs (depending on season. ). I used to (back in 2000) ride an '87 CBX250 on which I felt like a pumpkin on a pimple and had to throttle hard to get around. I am therefore pretty happy with the LAMS system as it frees up some larger torquier bikes for us larger folk who don't particular care for screaming high revs to get moving. From the last 4-5 months of reading, researching and conversations I think a GS500 is the best option for me, but sadly it looks like they are well out of my price range, so I'm now looking for something similar, but older (I think that's a bit of an oxymoron, but anyway...). So, I just found an add in a local paper for a 'GSX450E'. Google brings up bugger all, but quite a lot of parts. So I'm now seeking input from Netriderland... Does anyone know much about these? Is there a similar model I could look at on the net to get an idea of appearance/specs? Cheers for all/any assistance you can offer.
