To Be Fair...

Guys, I have narrowed it down to just one type of bike to purchase: The GS500 by Suzuki. With this in mind, Roberts, Jen and Mel came with me after lunch on Monday to check out the range of bikes on Wentworth Avenue in Sydney City. We certainly made the sales staff a little nervous by jumping on the bikes - though we did restrain ourselves from making motorbike noises and beeping the horns... anyhow...


Which one should I get? (The mechanicals are identical). The faired version looks a bit sexier and will perhaps be (possibly) "nicer" to ride at speed, though the unfaired bike is cheaper by about a grand and, of course, doesn't have sensitive fairings to be damaged... I don't really think that I would be going far wrong either way though... comments?

Did you mean Monday? As Sunday arvo you were with us. Both the bikes look pretty cool. Maybe the top one a bit cooler... although maybe it's cos you're wearing your sunnies... dunno! :)

whohoooo - who is that sexy man on that motorbike?

Didnt know you were thinking of purchasing one Pinks - but im def pro bikers..although I wouldnt go as far as saying the leather does anything for me... ;)

Anyway - we must catch up now that I'm back in the country. Bree and I are in Braddon now so a housewarming (a lot smaller this time) will def be on the cards.

Catchya soon!

whoops - forgot to make my suggestion...

I like the bottom bike (although not sure about the yellow?), but the top one would be just as cool I'm sure.

Just remember to watch those round-a-bouts Pinko...you know what happened last time... hehe :)

Hey Pinko

I think the bottom one is cooler, although I am with fin about the yellow. If you could get the bottom one in black that would be way cool.

Man either bike would be cool, do the fairings make it go faster if their red? Though they do look dodgy if you ever drop the bike though sure you have no plans of soing that.
In Whistler until the 30th April 2007 now so see you in awhile all welcome to visit.
Cheers
