Thanks guys! As far as the style, my style is no plastic and no chrome. Naked bikes FTW. I've been looking for a GS500 for the past year and this is the first one in my price range, and only the 4th I've seen for sale all year long.
I'll be careful, don't worry about that. I'm pretty scared of riding it. Not as scared as I was before I got on it, but it's definitely pretty scary. I mean, nothing between you and the pavement besides... well, nothing. That's weird.
