So I am buying a used bike by myself for the first time. When I was younger my brother (mechanic and rider) would help check things out. Im not a stooge, have been riding on and off for a while and have an okay idea of things to look for. But...I would love any suggestions tips etc you may have. I ve also been reading that these bikes are often raced and how to tell. Any tips there? Bike is a 91 Suzuki gs500 with 32000 miles. For $1250, Ill offer $1000. Supposed to be in good shape with many new parts. Ill know more after looking tomorrow. Oh yeah, bike lives by the ocean. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
