GS500PE..Purple Explorer

And so it begins,we are heading up to Alaska next June and my wife needed a bike.I'm a Suzuki man so I wanted to get her a Wee but funds were alittle tight.I decided that a GS500 would be a good choice,and met the GS500 god from the GS500 forum.I bought a great 94 from him and before it left his shop we adjusted the valves,changed ALL the body to purple ( wifes fav color ),put on a new steel braided front brake line,new bars etc.The bike already has Sonics front springs,rear rack and I traded some welding for a factory gel seat.
The plan is to make it more adventure/dirt road worthy.Here is the list of what I'm going to do to it.
DS tires..705's
Skid plate a cool GPZ style one.
Hard bags..50 cal ammo cans
Bar mitts
Throttle lock
Hwy pegs

Today I put the bike in the shed and got started.I got the Right bark buster installed but it was wayyyyy harder then it should have been.They were not made for a street bike with a master cyclinder.but a cut off saw and a grinder made it fit.
This build will be slow since I have alot of time and little $$$ but I plan on having done early next year ( Jan-Feb).
