hey folks. just figured to introduce myself - i've been lurking on the for sale forum for awhile here and i'm tired of not being able to post to it.
i own two bikes right now, neither of which are currently rideable. i'm starting to itch and i really want to pick up something that isn't 30 years old. i currently own a '79 GS850g and a '78 GS1000e. they're awesome, good old muscle bikes, the 79 is a shaftie and has a kick start, but they're just very... well, maintenance prone, lets say.
i'm not being fair to the 78 though, i just got that a few months ago and i havent had a chance to do basic maintenance to it to get it running yet.
anyway, i test drove a wee a few months ago at a local dealer event. superly comfortable and very nimble feeling. i'd like the flexibility of something i could take onto gravel roads without stressing out over it (i'd do that on my GS though, frankly, so long as they were crushed gravel).
i have a very very sharp eye on the bike currently listed in saratoga ny. i've also got a kid on the way and am trying to save for a house, so getting a green light from the missus is going to be challenging to say the least. buying 35 yr old bikes for $800 each was an easier negotiation
though of course i've put so much time and money into restoring...
anyway, that's a little about me - i'm at work so i should probably quit daydreaming about bikes and get back to editing. i'll follow up with more soon i'm sure.
