Another another Aussie from Qld
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.
