Just put a deposit down on a red/black GSX-S1000F. The dealer anticipates collection at the end of the month. Traded in my Yamaha XJ6 Diversion which I love and have owned since getting my DAS licence 3 years ago. Hoping I've done the right thing as I'm going to hate parting with the old girl.
you will love it mate, just got back from a big spin with my mates on there r1-s and a couple of blades and stuck with them no probs, and they were not hanging about, first time i rode it in the dark just love these lights much better than my old zzr, and i am not a bit stiff at all could ride another 100 odd miles no prob
nice same as mine , let us know what you think off it
Well obviously lots of great points which we will all agree on other wise none of us on this forum would have bought one !
It's always the negatives people need to know and discuss, so here are mine so far....
1) Snatchy throttle. I don't remember the test bike I rode being as bad as mine. I am somewhat used to this as my previous bike was not great, it's just that the better power to weight ratio of this bike makes it seem worse.
2) Seat Comfort. After doing about 45 miles yesterday my backside was starting to feel like there was a lack of padding on the seat. It may just be that the pressure area is different than my last bike.
3) Heavy clutch. Now I had heard this mentioned on a review previously and scoffed as I didn't remember the test ride bike feeling heavy and thinking he must have weak forearms! Now just to be clear here I'm no weakling and like to keep myself in shape but after my rides yesterday I was starting to feel it.
Perhaps one or more of these issues will change as the bike breaks in or my body may adapt to them, time will tell.
