Hello from another newbie
Just picked up a 2019 GSXS1000 in white. I've been riding for over 40 years on basically everything that's been made. From the early days of the CT70 to Harley's, dirt, supersport... too many to remember.
First impressions on the GSXS - My biggest concern with the bike is how smooth the engine would be. I've owned an FZ1 and while the power is nice, the buzzing in the handlebars and pegs made me want to sell it after the first oil change. I was happy to experience a nice smooth, vibration free ride. Transmission is glassy smooth and light but coming off a HD Street Glide, I would probably say that about any bike. I was glad not to find any false neutrals like I did with Ducati. I have to take it easy for the first 100 miles so I can't comment about the upper power yet but if it's anything like my 05 ZX10r, I'm sure I'll be having fun.
