General GS500 Discussion / Re: Photos!
« Last post by MichaelM3 on Today at 06:59:41 PM »
This is a photo from while ago... Three GS500s lined up in the bike parking area.
Mine is the naked one on the left. I have no idea who owned the other ones but I know the guy who owns the BMW in the background.
He was 'ecstatic' when I told him to sod off on that European, cheap excuse for a bike. This is a GS500 only parking area.

Buddah, I think you are thinking of the very original VT250 (1980's early) which had "inboard" disc brakes, The cover BTW was pressure cast aluminium. It was still not very useful . I think it was added as the current thinking was that performance discs were cast iron and the actual disc looked bloody aweful. ( and I mean REALLY aweful).
Here is a pic showing the 1999 VTR250 (one of  my old race bikes with a Suzuki rgv250 modified fairing):
.

I disagree about the GS500 being no good on the highway at 65-70mph ( 100-166pkh) I found it perfectly adequate and the fully faired one excellant. It is the tourer of choice ( and they DO have the choice) for 2 of my friends. I prefer my MT07 but that is because it is now better suspended. The big tank on the GS 500 is really good for touring.

" So my lovely lady caught me off guard when she said she was looking forward to getting on the back of it for some road trips... oh."
Alternate route. Get her her own bike?

The tank protector damage is even worse than I first thought. It has been rust converted, zinc painted, painted, started bubbling again. sanded, rust converted AGAIN, zinc painted, repainted and now it is starting to bubble again. I don't know what happened in the first place,but it was nasty.
What do you want to know about the brakes? front disc is from S3 performance so has their logo on it. Don't know the actual manufacturer. Reasonably lightweight but , as yet haven't ridden it ,  performance is yet to be determined. Had to change both discs because they were   way under spec. Rear is a 2nd hand slotted gs500 disc. Not really happy with it but will pass roadworthy. If I don't like it I will get a better lighetr one.

Thanks so much Bushido!! It really amazed me how well that gixxer headlight almost begged to fit all nice under the gauges like that. I lucked out with my pick based simply on the fact that I liked the look of it lol!

And those pics of your GS are great... I still love that flat blue and the rear plastics being black. The muffler is the finishing touch :bstar:

Going to try and get one when funds are avail. or the cheaper cousin, the plate that bolts onto a traditional armpit style crutch. the cheaper one though idk. i HATE those things. got a pair from hosp. they got me into the house. that was it. i want to see if the bolt on bit would work with a braced arm crutch. ive tried walking one legged with it as it is. not easy tbh. good leg is forced to hop. it is semi swollen recently . so im not taking chances. the knee scooter ej sent has MILES on it now lol.

That's wonderful!!! I love when I get an idea for something just from looking at other bikes.

And no shame in a project taking longer than originally anticipated... I've been working on my car fix/restoration for almost 3 years now. If things are done right, they take time, patience, and attention to detail :thumb: That's the only way to do stuff!

Looking absolutely great moto :star: :star: :star:

Thank you for the explanation Pete... that is really interesting to learn about the anti-dive technology. The plates and the forks really do look nice!!!

Nike's were always my favorite choice for shoes :thumb: And then sometime around 9th grade I switched to skater shoes like Etnies and Osiris and Airwalks and never really bought regular/athletic/basketball sneaks again. But I still think they look really awesome!!!
