1981 Suzuki GS450L
Hey there! I’m Ashley, from East Texas area. I’ve never driven a MC, but I slept on the back of one to Sturgis... that has to qualify for something, right? Anyway, I’ve always wanted to learn to ride, so here I am. My other half had a 1981 Suzuki GS450L that he dropped about 3k into 8 years ago. A year later, it was running less than satisfactory so he parked it in the shed. I came across it a few months ago, and was told to sell it if I wanted to, as is, and put the money toward a street ready bike. I pulled it out a couple weeks ago and gave it a much needed bath, and was shocked to how clean it is. It’s beautiful! And 10k miles? No way I’m selling it if I can fix it fairly easy.... So, here I am, slowly learning and troubleshooting as I go, which is what brought me here. I will post my progress and any questions/concerns I may have in the discussions, please give me guidance and encouragement, and refrain from negativity and ridicule. We all must start somewhere. Thanks!
