Suzuki's GN series, is there any love for 'em out there?
I've been buzzing around on my '82 250 quite frequently lately and I've come to appreciate the light, nimble, simple little thing alot.
At first I had this stigma about it, felt compelled to tell everyone it's my wife's bike... Yes, yes,, very silly... Anyway, I've gotten over that.. And, really it was s'posed to be for her, but after one crash, she's done with,, at least for now.
It's also come about that I might have a chance at picking up a well preserved GN400. Things I do know are it's kick start only, 6 volt, also has the "mini chopper" styling and should be at least a little more powerful than the 250.
Are these bikes worth messing with?
Any noteworthy pluses or minuses?
Thanks in advance.

Letting go of pretense, I'm riding whatever runs, wherever I want.
