in the past, the suzuki created a negative first impression in the area of overall fit and feel: the suzuki seat—on the 1977 gs400—burned a hole in the average backside within 50 miles. however, for 1978, suzuki is replacing the seats on the entire gs line; the gs550 and 750 have shared the same ailment. on the positive side, the handlebar position is good and suzuki's sportier seating position directs the rider's feet up and back. the bike also has nice soft grips. and, in noticing details, we recommend some practice in using the kill switch: its roller action is inferior to a flip switch design.
