G'day from Oz

Hi all,

Went for a bit of a test ride day yesterday at the local dealer. First cab of the rank was the GSXS. Very nice. Loved it apart from the jerky throttle at low speeds. Then I took one of my dream bikes - Ducati Monster 796 (second hand with Termi's) for a go. VERY dissappointed. Then the dealer got me on the new Monster 821. Ok, but didn't super impress me. The Suzi is looking good!

Coming from a Yamaha FZ6S, I like the naked. Now to convince the wife to part with $16,000!

Sounds good mate! Tell her its an investment in your well-being and happiness. Who could put a price on that? Therefore $16,000 is a bargain!

welcome fellow aussie

the throttle touchiness goes away with some fine tuning mine was a little funny at the start but after 1st service it was gone

when push comes to shove you have to be happy with what you buy and only you can pick that

They can't be all the same. I love my throttle. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Welcome! The throttle on mine isn't great, but I'm getting used to it. The rest of the bike is fantastic!
