The 1986 GS 550 ES was the best middleweight no doubt, IMHO better than the famed GPZ 550 if you like to twist that throttle open because with a 12.37 quarter it would outrun that damn Kawasaki -- trust me on that one :)
Today a modern 600cc sportbike makes 40 more horsepower but guess what? It's fun, but you don't really need all of that. Bike is bike. Get one. Ride it.
