Hi From Perth - Western Australia

Hi
I am a 62 year old biker that decide I needed a new toy.
As a shorty with a stiff neck I needed the upright seating position this bike offers.
My new GSX S1000F arrived yesterday and now the break in period has commenced.

Impressed with traction control - put it on level 3 as tyres are still new and slippery. It has kicked in a couple of times today and seems to work very smoothly.

Can anyone suggest suspension settings for a 70kg all up rider?

Welcome from NZ! I'm 68 and have gone the same way for pretty much the same reasons . Had a fantastic holiday in WA a couple of years ago travelling between the s-w tip and Broome. Surprise how many of your east coasters have never been there!

Enjoy.......

Just leave it standard. Unless you are an over weight type of guy/girl. Don't mess about with it.
