G'day! For sale is my much-loved GS500. Bought it 15 months ago at 9050km. from @Jimbo (on this very forum!) Since then, we've toured australia, done several interstate weekend trips, participated in the 2012 Black Dog Ride all the way to alice springs! She hasn't missed a single beat. The GS is renowned for 3 decades for being pretty bulletproof, and if you're here looking at this ad, you probably know that. I bought it as my first bike, purely because I am 6'4 and it's basically the biggest LAMs approved motorcycle you can buy. It's very upright, super easy on the body to ride all day. Took me from alice springs back to melbourne in two days! For the last 15 months, it has been my go to vehicle of choice. Truthfully, It has been crashed. I bought a new rear tire and on a roundabout I leaned it over too far and it slid out on me. 25-30kph. That was 20,000km ago though. The only damage was a damaged bracket on the exhaust, a scratch on the engine casing, and a very small dent on the fuel tank from my shoe! I'm currently still commuting on the bike daily, 60km. It is in need of a major service, hence the cheap as chip price tag (firm). It needs the valve clearances re-shimmed, which should cost no more than $400 unless you do it yourself. It has an aftermarket yoshi exhaust, which provides a little more power and sounds MUCH better than stock (passes roadworthy, too!) I have installed Oxford heated grips, valued at $160. They're absolutely magic, and beef up the diameter of the grips giving more feedback. The front tire has a good 15,000km left in it, and the rear tire is spanking new. New alternator side engine casing gasket. New cluster and dash globes. Reiterating, it needs a major service, hence I'm selling it very cheaply. My restricted licence ends in one week, and my new bike is just chomping at the bit. A perfect cheap first bike.
