PostSubject: Hello, from an oldie but goodie, so I'm told   Tue Aug 26, 2014 10:22 am

Hi,   
I'm happy to have found this forum for like minded people. I bought my first Suzuki in about 1982 with the first bike after I passed my test, it was the GSX550ESD, absolutely brilliant bike that really gave me  confidence. Then when the first Intruder came out in 1986 (ish) I fell in love, but for reasons mainly to do with finance I never managed to buy one, until now I have finally purchased a 1994 VS800GL, old like me, but still plenty of miles left in the tank. One previous owner who bought it new, and only 3,500 miles on clock. There is a dent in the tank unfortunately but it was hidden by the black frilly tank cover, I guess I should have been more observant. I will post a pic once I have discovered how. I'm 60 this year, but still have full faculties, teeth, hair etc. I live near Guildford, and hope to be able to contribute to this forum for years to come. My name is Alan. Thanks for making me welcome (I hope lol)

Hi Alan and 

I too owned a GSX550ESD , 1983 model Blue / White , loved it and still wish I had it now to be honest. Had fairing lowers and a period black chrome Motad 4 - 1 . One of the comfiest bikes I've ever ridden.

Mine was Blue/White too, I had a Sport 4-1 exhaust too, really made it so much more responsive. Really annoyed my mate when I used to leave him for dead on his Yamaha waiting for his turbo to spin up. Brilliant bike, one of the best I've ever ridden.
