My first bike was a '95 GS500E that I picked up from a friend for $750 w/ 2000miles. That was in '05 I think. Anyways, I thought it was excellent for learning. Not too powerful, but had enough to keep me entertained. Most of the GS500Fs I have seen on Craigslist lately have been going for $2500+.What do you guys think about an 04 GS500F with 15k miles for $1500. It needs new tires, chain, sprocket, and he claims it needs a tune up (valve adjustment I'm guessing). Thinking about getting it for my bro as his first.
