Perfect 1st motorcycle for a 41 year old

Bought a 2013 in 2021 with 24,700kms, in stock condition. 500 cc twin engine has great pull for a +100kg person, comfy riding position and is super reliable. Does 250kms before hitting reserve, easy to maneuver and super fun to ride. Show details

1990 & 2008 models

I had a '90 model about 20 years ago for a commuter and it did the job well. I've just bought an '08 model that was written off and turned into a track bike with a sports rear shock, braided brake lines and petal brake discs. It can't keep up with the sports bikes on the straights but it's a heap of fun in the corners and can keep the sporty bikes honest. It goes to show you how versatile the GS500 can be.

Love it

Bought this bike 6 months ago. Love it!! Pretty cheap to run. Nice big fuel tank 19-20 litres. Quite comfortable. Goes pretty good. Cheap to maintain. Fun through the hills. Good to commute on. I find myself leaving for work early so I can ride the bike, and often go to work via the hills.
Most of it
Worst thing is the front forks, a little too soft, bottom out sometimes Show reply

Hi can anyone please tell me where I can buy a more comfortable seat for my 2004 GS500? The current seat is like sitting on a brick after about an hour of steady riding

Thanks
