werd werd!  i'm the mad phat chick killa Zara.  20 years old, and male (though soon to be 21 on august 3rd!)  i live in minneapolis and go to the university of minnesota.  i'm majoring in philosophy and history, but taking up bike tech on the side.  no girlfriend, i'm going to say it's by choice, but that's a highly debatable field.  in my defense, every girl i meet sucks, so all you guys with cool girlfriends, you're lucky.  i've got a couple picks of my bike up on geocities, but none of myself.  but yeah, that's me, SWEET!

Howdy all!      I'm Rebecca in Seattle, I have pics both of myself and of my bikes in the galleries, I have two GS500's, a '93 & a '94. I'd ridden on the back all my life and these are my first bikes. I am a 34 yr old single mom. I'm spastically enthusiastic about riding.
 I'm a Spanish interpreter, music freak, vegetarian.
 I have already made one really cool friend, live and in person, from this site and we ride together frequently. We're even planning on doing an endurance ride together this summer (Hi Ron  :lol:  if you read this post!) and using the GStwin name for our team.  I LOVE seeing other women out there on bikes and I love making friends both cyber and in real life.
 You old hand guys have been very kind and helpful, thank you. Welcome all new folks! This is a fantastic site.     -Becca

First off, congrats on finishing the AA, Jeff.

I'm Joel (JBix)... I am from California, Riverside area, but, courtesy of Uncle Sam, I'm on a vacation to Iraq - Army Reserve.  I was going to Kaplan College, working on a BS in Computer Science/Engineering.  Before having the GS, I wasn't very mechanincally inclined, but I am picking it up now, or will be when I get home.  There are just some things I just can't do at home.  Yet.  A trip to a Craftsman or Snap-on dealer will solve that problem.  But, I will be betraying you all when I get home... I will be buying a 600cc sportbike.  I am going to keep the GS, may eventually make it a race bike.  I have a litttle over a year under my belt right now, but I will get used to riding again, then make the purchase.  Looking at CBR600RR, but I will have to shop around.  May think about SVS.  We'll See...

PS No pics on the board, and can't fix that from here.

PPS, White boy, lived in CA whole life.  Visited, but never lived in other states.  I like having riding weather all year!   :P  Was engaged, she was unfaithful and broke it off.

I'm Dave (aka Juggernaught) I'm 37 and of Puerto Rican descent (but born in Da' Bronx) and work as a physical therapist at a brain injury unit at a hospital in Manhattan.  My girlfriend is an physician (of Russian/Jewish descent.....dontch' love this country..???   :kiss: ) and works out of hospital affiliated low income clinic in the Lower East Side.  We met in an emergency room (Sigh...) I enjoy all types of music (mostly rock...but all types) and i believe that anything can be fried...and if not fried...grilled..and if not grilled then i can't eat it.  I also enjoy political discourse, fighting for the underdog and for truth and justice.  And i hate mean people.  So beware.  Pictured are myself...and my ride

Hi, my name is Silvia. My nickname is Sue Zuki....wonder why...
I live in the Netherlands. I'm 42 years old and ride a fully faired Suzuki GS500E slingshot of 1991.
A couple of weeks ago I fell making a turn, using the frontbrakes. How stupid could you be...Learnt my lesson as my fairing is all broken now..
Today I picked up a used one of 2001. The colour ain't the same, but we will see what we will do...Haven't decided yet...
I made a website of my own when I just got my license about one year ago...Just to make new bikerfriends...Still keep it up to date informing my friends about ride outs and new things....
If you'd like to check it out...it's at  http://www.suezuki.50megs.com
Also have a site with links at
http://www.suezuki.eigenstart.nl   I'd love you guys 'n dolls... to sign my guestbook (gastenboek) That would be very nice...
See y'all

I'm Burt, 29 year old male living in Kansas City, KS. Single, no kids. I like to tinker with stuff and I commute to work on the GS whenever weather permits.

I have my bike, a daily driver and an old POS Trans Am to fight with. I can usually keep two of them running at a time ;) The TA currently needs new engine mounts.

Other hobbies include computer gaming, firearms, playing bass guitar, and animation (watching, not generally making).

Jeeze Rash you giant! Ok hello everyone who's never seen me before, I'm Simon 17 from London England, and mixed chinese/english/irish. I don't really post too much due to my lack of informative knowledge, but let it be known I read almost every post, culling all useful info. and increasing my knowledge of bikes.(Don't we all?:nana:) The GS2002 in Blue, being my first! Due to european law etc. and me being only 17, I'm restricted to 25kW for 2 years, better this way 'cos I probably would of killed myself anyways! Three mods under my belt, all cosmetic, but plenty more to come. Apart from the GS, the only other ride I had was a 50cc Italjet scooter which I loved, and equally trashed to it's poor demise.
  Studying Alevels in physics, psychology, info. com. tech. and maths. Hopefully I want to go and study a Masters in either Electrical or Mechanical engineering, giving there isn't a saturation point within a few years.
Here attached is a pic of me, my bike and me new textile furygan jacket, enjoy(common agreement states it's "cool" not to smile):

Thanks Simon
