Thanks for the review, sounds like a fun bike. I think that most of the people that have trouble starting the GS are inpatient. Most of the reviews I read said that you have to warm it up on full choke for 2-3 minutes. Really, not that bad, if you know what to expect.
The truck I had back in high school took longer to warm up on cold days than the few mins I let it warm up plus the 5 min drive to school. I don’t know about you, but it takes me a couple mins to getting earplugs in and the helmet and gloves on anyway, so are you really loosing time letting it warm up? Probably not…..like I said, impatient people writing reviews
Anyways, a little tangent never hurt anybody, lol. Enjoy, ride safe…
