Buy a GSXS without riding one?
Short test rides (as in a few minutes) are all you can get if you're lucky and I'm sure I'll like the bike but it's pretty much impossible to get a feel for the bike unless I just take the plunge.
I'm in a real rut with my bikes, I've had 25 now and the past several haven't even last a year, some only a month or two. ZX14R was too much bike, couldn't count on my KTM SMT, VFR12000 was just lame so I sold everything and now looking to buy two bikes that compliment each other. One of them is going to be an FJR.
I'm looking for a really fun easy to ride bike that will make me want to get out and ride, take to the track once in a while and not need a lot of mods to make it work well. I'm 160lbs suspension-wise and not terribly picky about the fueling but could see myself sending it to Woolich if the re-call doesn't fix it.
Thanks in advance
