The ride home .......

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by rbarge, Feb 17, 2006.

  1. Picked up my GS500 today, riding home I got to the toll booth on the Gateway motorway, paid then stalled the bike on they way out. The bike then went dead, no lights no starter or anything, oh no get myself a lemon me thinks. Had to be rescued from the middle of the motorway by the RACQ.

    It turned out to be a bad connection on the battery in the end so the bike is fine, still made me look like a complete dick stuck in the middle of the motorway :(

    Oh and to top it off I hit by a thunderstorm on the way home, always good on a new bike.

    The GS is great, feels like an R1 comming of the virago ha ha, lets just hope it dosn't let me down again :)
  2. if you've been on an r1, you would never compare it to a gs500. ever!
  3. No, but my point was how slow the vriago is.
