Hi folks, first post here, but have been reading for a couple of months, love the helpful vibe of the forums and really appreciate everyones contribution to the resource. I got my Ls about a month ago, and have had a few finacial things pop up that have made me put off getting my first ride, but not so much that I can't save it back in a 2 or 3 months. I was going to spend around 7k getting setup (gear included in that) and was looking at low km bikes for 5 to 6 grand, and the rest on gear and insurance. It will take me a while for the funds to recover to a point where i want to spend that, so in the interest of getting on the road faster I've been wondering about the merits of bikes that have done a few more miles. I want to take a few for a ride before I settle on one, and am looking for a gs500 or similar kinda thing, and I'm seeing them around with 20,000+ km in prices I can do right now, so does anyone have any advice or tips on taking the chance on something thats "been round the block" a few times? I'm pretty handy on the tools and will be getting the workshop manual for whatever I get, but time is more of an issue for me when it comes to maintainace, I don't get a lot of spare time. Is it worth the potential risk or should I just cool my heels and wait a couple of months till I can afford somethings fresher... Cheers!
