A mate and I are looking to get a couple of older bikes to have fun with. We have different aims, but my plan is (at this stage) to pick up an old shaft drive Suzi, one of the GS models. I love the style and want to experience the machines. Of course, when these bikes were sold new, I was in Primary School, so I'd love some advice from people who have a little experience with these bikes. I'm looking at either the gs850g or the gs1100g, on the basis that the 750 is older, rarer and more expensive, and the 1000 is older, rarer, more sought after and more expensive. This whole project has to be cheap - initial purchase price is going to be between $1000-2000. I've done plenty of net reading, including thegsresources. However, what I would love to get an idea of is the following: (btw, congrats for reading this far!) - my daily ride is a '98 gsx750f. How much difference in power am I likely to notice between this, and a 850g, or an 1100g? - and difference in torque? Note, I'm not after numbers, I'm after impressions, feel, that sort of purely subjective (and therefore probably useless) information. - I know these are reasonably large bikes. Is there any real difference in size between the 850 and the 1100? - and in the real world, is there much difference in the feel of the weight? - if you had your choice of the two, which would you chose, and why? No substitute for cubes? Thanks for any input!
