Well the Old Dig won't like this topic, probably won't even look in here to read it :lol: but....

Does anyone have any experience of the GS450S? I've got one on loan for a report for a magazine...just wondering if you guys have tales to tell of good / bad points, likes dislikes etc.

It's a whole different ball game to riding Cubbie :shock: :P

off the top of my head...started out as a 400 then went to 425 before becoming a 450...main competition was the Kaw 500 twin of which the critics preferred the Kaw. Power was considered moderate and buying Suzi's 550/4 was cheaper than upgrading the twin...

Do you need road tests or is the Vmcc library stocked with this stuff?

Thanks Bob, most of what I've got to write is just the day to day living with the bike stuff, but I will be researching a few road tests. The owner has a lot of info too, was just wondering if anyone had ridden one or knows someone who has one.

Wiz, one thing I am gobsmacked with is the handling! So fast and light in the corners, but boy it doesn't like white lines and over-banding :shock:

Dig, 4 Yammys. FOUR Yammys?? Kept that quiet eh :lol:

WTF~
I am going to really stick my neck out here ~

What is " overbanding " ~ ? ( I imagine would be an aspect by a different colour to what we know in Oz call ~ ) :502

when they do a cheap patch to the road surface, they overband the join with a slick Tar sub, when wet it makes a great skateing surface worm

it also used to stop the bloody pot holes from opening out again after a few cars had been over it! They're bringing it back again, but this time with a hand full of sharp sand thrown in the mix. :207
