Another another Aussie from Qld

Hi
Well I've just returned to riding after a long layoff after racing years ago. I bought a Harley, but that whole program doesn't agree with me!

I ordered a GSXS1000S after test riding Ducati Monster, MV Augusta Brutale and Yamaha XJR1300. I wanted a big, capable sporting (but not racing) ride that could tour on occasion but mostly for day trips.. And after testing, the GSXS came up trumps.

Ordered it last week, having only seen and ridden the naked but expect the F to be exactly what I want. I get it Tuesday Aussie time, so about a week for delivery and set up. I guess this means they're getting out to dealers now. From forum posts, I plan to put tank and rub point protection on immediately, the a Yoshimura pipe and rear mudguard kit after the first service.
Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave and welcome. The Yoshi pipes aren't legal in Australia. Suzuki are/have released an aftermarket pipe for the GSXS but I actually like the sound from the stock pipe. Any louder and I'd need ear plugs!

Also, if you haven't seen them already, the GSX-S1000F (fairing version) doesn't look that nice compared to the full naked, but personal preference I guess.

The R&G tail tidies are good (mine goes on today) but make sure you fit the reflector below the plate, as without it you'll cop a fine + demerit points!

Thanks for the heads up peejosity, I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Interesting re the pipe, I assumed all were on the wrong side of legal?

R&G tail tidies... Are they nice? Any idea where to get ( or even see)

I got mine from Brisbane Motorcycles Windsor (ask for Andy in Accessories). Most aftermarket pipes are illegal, but Suzuki were releasing one that keeps it legal. (not sure if all states though).

I've also got a heap of slide/drop protection for my bike. Most is on backorder though!

Ride it like you stole it.
