One from Northern California

Just picked up my silver Non-ABS model last week with 32 miles (all put on by me road testing) and just finished up the 600 mile service. She is beastly! I came from a 2003 Z1000 that I loved dearly and worked on extensively over the last 4 years, and the GSX feels so much like the Z with 12 years newer technology...Its perfect!

Ive already stripped all the decals, chucked the mirrors for a single left side bar end (thats all you need to be legal in CA), whipped up a solid little tail tidy out of $13 worth of sheet metal, and fork/swingarm bobbins. All good stuff and more to come! Glad to be here.

Welcome from Scotland

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

Welcome from sunny Manchester UK.
Are you not required to have rear indicators or have you managed to tuck them away somewhere?

I had literally just made the tail tidy before that picture, and didn't have the right connectors for the blinkers and want so keen on cutting and splicing the wires on a 2 week old bike (which is what I would normally do).

Had to ride without them to work today and wouldn't recommend it. Got it all sorted now tho... people know where I'm going
