1982 Suzuki GS650G

1982 Suzuki GS650G

I purchased this 1982 GS650G from the 2nd owner in the same family on May 15, 1989. It is the 2nd of 2 red GS650G models that I purchased and is identified elsewhere on this site as "GS650G Red2." It was in nice condition when purchased. A thorough cleaning and additional detail work brought it up to its current condition as pictured.

After last being ridden on September 16, 1990 with a mileage reading of 4797 (7675 km), I returned this machine to service on June 8, 2004, a storage period of nearly 14 years. Little effort was required and few problems were encountered, a detailed account is on my Motorcycle Storage Information Page, refer to the section for "GS650G Red2." This machine has since been returned to long-term storage with mileage reading of 4904 (7895 km).

For me, the GS650G models were an underrated machine offering a comfortable ride and riding position, excellent performance and reliability plus a great shaft drive system. I can ride them for several hours non-stop and still not want to stop but have to because the fuel gauge is in the red zone. My only complaint - I wish Suzuki had fitted a larger fuel tank!

The GS650 is pictured above on Lookout Mountain west of Golden, Colorado.

As with other machines in the collection, the Suzuki GS650G is not offered for sale at the present time. Looking for a Suzuki GS650G for sale? Be sure and check online auction sites from time to time.
