I see... But what makes the Osprey bad? And what makes a bike good? In terms of enjoyment of riding it I mean. Specifically my GS400 :P Should I focus on engine, intake, exhaust or what? This is my first bike so I don't really know what to prioritize...
I did notice the lack of suspension, but a guy in the comments said that it was still rideable... but I get that it would propably be way more uncomfortable :P
But it's not that I prioritize appearence over function, it's just that the bike I own is pretty much stock except for all the rust.. So should I not focus on the appearence to make it look like a cafe racer, or is there more to it than that?
As long as a guy in the comments section thinks it's OK then you should be good.
I rode bicycles for 20+ years with no suspension at all and never had an issue. Kinda like power windows in a car, if you haven't got them you don't notice it, but once you get them it's hard to live without them. Suspensions are overrated, those guys who buy $1000 shocks and fancy Swedish forks? Posers.

There you go, don't ride your motorcycle any faster then bicycle speed, stick to smooth roads and you will never have a problem because after all, suspension is all about comfort and has nothing to do with the way a parked motorcycle handles.

If it is your first bike, you need a bike that is safe to ride, not look all rude and stanced out sitting still. Who gives a fuck what the bike looks like sitting still, unless it's for static display.
I don't know. I like to ride mine.
