    I'm just a poor boy, this only cost me $3200. Couldn't touch a Harley for that. Does the solid wheels give you a problem on cross winds?

    Thanks 13! At 1800cc’s it was a great cruiser. It’s basically a stripped down Gold Wing. I’ve had a couple HD’s, still might get another one. That old VTX was the most comfortable bike I’ve had yet. Mrs t2 loved it! I got it dirt cheap. Cleaned it up, chromed it out, lowered it, V&H long shots, and a Mustang seat. Couldn’t say no to the offer I got for it!

    Thanks Shooter. There's a really great website and forum at www.thegsresources.com. Absolutely everything you ever needed to know about the late '70's-early '80's GS is on this site. I'm not a mechanic but pretty handy. Without that site, I would not have been able maintain this 37 year old bike. The forum has a weekly photo contest where the theme varies week to week. The photos were for that. It motivates me to get out and ride whenever I can.

    What a bummer, I found out my bike was like a giant Sportster. Only 3.9 gallons of the 4.5 gallon gas tank was usable, having a range of 150 miles max. Sooooooooooo, I traded for the Yamaha 1300 touring that had everything I needed already on it. 2009 four years newer than the Suzuki WIN_20190515_07_27_36_Pro.jpg
