I like tinkering with older motorcycles and riding around the neighborhood listening to the 4 into 1 header. I decided I wanted something to ride every day. I still like my old gs1000 but if I ride the ninja and then get on it its like driving and old truck
I know what you mean, I've a recently restored '79 GS 1000S which is really the same bike. Very similar when I jump back on my modern bikes. Do find the seat better on the old bike, flat & plenty of room to move around.
