    Brings back memories of my 78 GS1000E...a thief made off with it. Great bikes, nice score!

    Just saw a blue 82 on pgh CL, super clean less than 12k miles. It lasted less than a day. It was a beauty.

    Thanks bros, I had a 650 like this back in the day and I always regretted selling it, so I have been looking for a good deal on one for awhile.
    It has 36k on it and runs great.
    Lots of power.
    Old school motor.

    You are correct I did list it when I realized that it wouldn’t be getting ridden as much as it had, hoping to find a buyer who appreciates the bike as much as I do.
    I doubt that it will sell, most of the kids around here want a bike they can do wheelies on and most of the adults want one that goes potato potato. So I will likely wind up keeping it as my hell raising bike, lol.

    Very good engines on those Suzi's. Years ago I bought one for my son so he could hone his street riding before I gave him the ZL9.

    Yes, that has been my experience too. Good motors.
    Anyway, as much as I love the 900, I hate its tiny tank.
    I looked at a few concourses but I don’t like all the plastic.
