Hi!

Just signed up as my GSX-S1000S has now taken residence at my house.

My other ride is an M109R so this is a bit of a change!

Hail from Whyalla in SA.



Cheers

All good mate. I live not far from the plant and we havenít had Red dust blowing around for about 12 years now. Back then there was a shift in processing technology and a big clean up. This end of town is all back to normal.

Where I work on the other hand! I run one of the mine sites

I'm confused.. is that not the new Katana? Either way, welcome aboard. Looks like two great bikes .. best of both worlds.

It is the new Katana - a GSXS1000S - hope that means I can be on a GSXS board

Of course.. I wasn't aware the katana shared the same name with the added "s". They're practically the same bike either way. Let us know how you get on with it.

Very Nice.
As far as I'm aware you are the first to sign up on here with that model (Katana in the UK)
You'll have to give us a run down on it once you've had time to get to know it.
Let us know if any of the magazine Journo's are anywhere close to the mark

The Katana is just a GSX S1000 in slightly different clothing to reminisce the old Katana's. Just a styling exercise, a bit more drastic than the differences between the 'naked' one (semi-faired) and the F (faired). I simply consider it a third looks of the same bike. Everything else applies.

Ya, welcome aboard! The bar looks to have more rise than the gixxus - might be the answer some are looking for. Are they labeled Renthal Fatbar?
