'04 GV250 has given me years of solid reliable riding in town and on the highway. The rusted rear shock coils are a bummer, though--so I painted them black, which gives the bike sort of a period Indian look. I like it.
My only real complaint, along with everyone else, is the weak electrical system. I'd like to run my driving lights 24/7, but I'm afraid of killing the battery. I use a maintainer ALWAYS.
If I get some time, I'll upgrade the electrical system and then probably never sell it. I really like this bike a lot. It's dead in between an English thumper and a big American V-Twin, so it's a perfect size and weight for me, but it runs so smoothly and has such a nice power band. I love this bike.
