Hi all, My name is Michael and I've just gotten my hands on a Suzuki GS500F and love it every time I wrap my legs around the bike. Very much new to riding, and still getting the hang of the clutch and manual shifting (had learners for a few months).. I'm not riding with much gear at the moment, just a helmet, due to short funds, but looking at some leather gear this weekend, and hoping to expand my experience outside of the local streets and some quiet streets once I've got some proper protection on me... Regardless, love it, and it's all I think about when I get home!!
