New Owner in B.C. Canada

Hey everyone I just picked up my brand new 2016 GSX-S1000F today, I rode it home 350kms!! Great bike!! I;m selling my Street Triple now!! Previous bikes were a 2008 B-King, 2011 GSXR 750, Moto Guzzi Breva 1100, then back to the 80's for my Yamaha 650 Turbo and original Katana 750!!
My only complaint so far is the snatchy throttle!! I'll be looking at the boards to help me to sort this one out!!

Hey Suncoast,
Welcome Aboard - The More the Merrier on this Dance Floor.
'Snatchy Throttle'? Never heard of that one reported here; You must be mistaken surely. (lol)

Really? You think its better than the Street Triple? I have not experienced one myself but I've heard all kinds of goodness with the Speed Triple.
Its good to hear the S1000 is favored . Would like to know your differences in experience that made you switch.

Welcome Suncoast! I'm absolutely loving my F and I hope you can solve the throttle issue. I lucked out and mine doesn't have it. One of the first things I did was adjust out the excessive throttle cable slack and a few have mentioned that it might be a contributing factor. Looking forward to your posts.

Only the new redesigned triples, both street and speed, are worth owning in my opinion. And then I'd only buy the R series.
