Remember that thread about Rooz and I wanting bikes? Well, I got one! It's a 1992 Suzuki GS500E.
Here's what it's got: (straight from Craigslist)
New Pirelli Sport Demons tires
New Chain and Sprockets
New vacuum and gas lines
New dash lights
Rebuild 4 years ago:
New piston rings
New bearings over the entire bike
K & N Stage 3 Jet Kit with open air dual filter
Frame and wheels powder coated jet black
Body and fairing custom black metallic with dark blue flames
Fork spacers for stiffer front suspension
Vance & Hines exhaust
The only thing it needs is new front fork seals and blinkers, both of which I already have the parts for.
Anyway, on with the pics!
For the record, the Vance & Hines is VERY loud. I was just practicing in a parking lot last night and my ears were ringing after just an hour.
Currently, I don't have it titled since it is the end of the month and the DMV is really crazy, I can't get my permit because the testing center is only open on Fridays in this hick town and I obviously don't have plates since I don't have it titled or have the safety inspection/blinkers or have a permit to ride it.
My helmet should be here by Friday and my jacket comes tomorrow.
So, hopefully I can learn how to ride it better before the season ends, cause I'm totally hooked on it!!!! Riding slow is the hard part. It's easy going fast because of the physics of a bike. Slow sucks. My weak-ass self has to maneuver 375 lbs without any help. It's a fairly small bike, but if on it's side. I cannot pick it up. I've tried.
Anyway, I'm really stoked, but it's kind of put on hold for now...
