My new GS500

Discussion in 'Showcase' at netrider.net.au started by cygnus, Oct 26, 2009.

  1. So I've introduced myself in the announcements section, and I've had my first fall last weekend as well, so while I'm off the bike for a couple of weeks, the best I can do is post a couple of pictures of it.

    So here it is:

    And another:

  2. congrats Cygnus, my first bike was a GS - great choice!
  3. I can't remember ANYONE on this forum who bought a GS-500 or its variants who didn't like the bike; some have complained that as they got better it got a bit slower, but it's a LAMS bike; what would you expect?

    (And your's isn't the almost obligatory blue and white (y))
  4. Congrats and nice choice of bike.

    I have a '89 model GS500 which does the around town hack work :0)
  5. Congrats! I just got myself a GS500F a few weeks ago, loving it! I'm sure you will too!

    Hopefully there was nothing serious with your fall, and you can get back on the bike soon!

    The colour is different to most I've seen, which is a good thing!

    Have fun once you're back on!

  6. Mate, by the end of my LAMS period it felt like a pushy! But for those first few weeks, man it was a rocket ship!
