Zapp's new steed

Just picked up my new (to me) 2016 GSXS1000 - in the blue - naked version- less than 3000 miles on the clock - standard except previous owner had put a lowering kit on her . ..so as im 6'1 im putting the standard kit back on again this weekend. I still found it amazingly comfortable to ride home from the dealers.
I might start 'pimping her up over the coming months There appears to be a lot of aftermarket silencers for the gsxs . .. .For those that have removed the std exhaust and disabled the cat function???? easy to do or is it a garage/dealer task?
cheers anyways chaps / chapesses!! safe riding

Welcome to the Forum Rob, a.k.a. Zapp
Enjoy your bike, but it will be getting cold up there by now, 6 weeks from Christmas ?
I guess that pop's a few more bikes onto the Northern Hemisphere Market, all that snow and ice, so you get a better price from the Sellers.
Just watch those salty roads, they won't do your bike any good, but I am sure you'll take it easy for a while before you give her heaps.

Rob.

Nice! Even though it looks very much like mine, we'll still need you to post some pictures.
