As a follow on from the last post re scooter to bike, I have looked at the gs500f and pending advice here I will probably buy one this week. Just like to get opinions first. I am coming off a 250cc scooter, 182cm and 100kg. This will be my first real bike. I like it because its cheap new, and this means not a huge loss when I want to upgrade in a year or 2. Its also pretty basic. If I drop this thing, I probably wont be too worried. Whats your thoughts? Andy.
