Dom, rj's advice is good. Just take a good look at everything, then ride it. Be prepared for a tall, top heavy bike. It isn't top heavy when moving, it is great, but when stopped, or just before stopping at a stop, don't let it get away from you. The bike should feel light, responsive, and agile. You'll like it!
Get all the maintenance records. If the seller doesn't have the owner's manual, you can order one at a Suzuki parts counter. That has all the maintenance recommendations. Most are valid; a few are overkill. We'll let you know if you ask.
