    Default New to the forum GS owner.

    Hey guys, Sleepy here, I've been a moto head since 1987 and a Suzuki GS fan for several years.
    I love the lines of the GS bikes and I LOVE the Shaft drive and smoothness of the GS850G especially.

    I look forward to learning and figuring out tips and tricks from this site!

    I have two bikes currently,

    A 1980 GS850G that is a work in progress (Maroon)
    80 gs850G.jpg
    and a 1982 GS850G that is about as mint as a person can make one. (blue)

    I love these bikes!

    You can also listen in to some nice garage talk with me as I am part of the ClevelandMoto Vintage Motorcycle podcast. We have been going since 2011, have around 150,000 listeners and just recently started uploading the podcast to youtube. Check it out!

    The blue bike (this one picture per post is kind of lame if I have to be honest!)

    You need to host your photos somewhere like Flickr or Smugmug. Then you can post up to 10.
    Someone will be along with the photo posting instructional link in a few.

    Welcome. will check out the video.

    The one pic per post is lame. There is a way around it. You can actually post up to 10 images per post by pasting the BBCode of the image(s) that is hosted on an image hosting site like Imgur or Flickr. I've written instructions for using Imgur and linked it in my signature if you're interested.

    Hey Sleepy, welcome.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"
