Hi there I currently have a little dilemma. I have been out of the saddle for the past year+ after some back surgery and am feeling exponentially better and looking to get back into it! I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500f with 36000ish kms on the clock, in pretty good nick. I bought it second hand from a dealer, full service history, 1 owner before me. When I injured myself I was pretty busy with rehab etc and well everything has expired (rego, insurance etc) and it hasn't really been out and about for the past 6 months minimum. It desperately needs a service and to get it registered here in Qld (where I moved just prior to my injury) I will need a RWC, pay for plates and so on. I am wondering if it is worth throwing the $$ into the bike, which has been an awesome bike in the short time I had to enjoy it before I broke myself (and no, not on the bike!) or if it would be more sensible to trade it in and throw the $$ into getting something newer, under warranty etc. The worst thing is I still owe a couple of grand on the bike (paying it off under finance) which I have the cash to pay out but if I trade in that will pretty much cover what I owe and put me back a 0 if that makes any sense.. I still have to get a LAMS bike, I have my full licence but here in Qld I have to do another course or something before I can ride anything!! Just looking for a bit of advice from you guys who will know better. I am unsure of how much a major service will cost on my Suzi, like what if it needs a new clutch, cables and other pricey components, brakes etc! God forbid tyres.. Like if it was going to cost me in excess of $2K to get the bike back up and running was thinking it would be more sensible to throw that $$ at paying off the current finance and start again.... I honestly don't know!! Please help?!
