Coincidently, i own a GS500e over here in Qatar.
Ahh, this is my first bike, and i started riding only 8 months back.
As a first bike, this feels to me perfect.
And regarding maintenance, Cmon guys, pakistan mei to Carburettors k Magicians bastay han THat should not be a problem...
ONe thing i want to ask from GS500e Owners, where do u get this Handle from, i mean, can u tell me which handle to look for, i'm planning to get it from pakistan.
Also, ANy engine mods to your bikes?
Here are some pics of my GS500e (1999) model, only 3000 kms done now, (was 200 km when i got it)... This is completely stock.
