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.

Hello! I am a newbie to my 2016 GSXS 1000 also. Found it at a dealership new but leftover back in September, while I was there getting a part for my RMZ 450.
I have owned two CBR600ís, 2 GSXR 750ís, and one 1250s Bandit. This is my favorite of the bunch!
Almost 900 miles on it now but havenít had the need or space to take it over 8k rpm yet!
Maybe I am just getting old!

I think you will really enjoy it! Comfortable and fun to ride with plenty of power. I really like that color scheme! Congrats. Have fun and enjoy!

If you're following the owners manual recommendations to limit your rpm for the first few hundred miles, it's possible that after break-in you might yet discover just a bit of bar vibes in the upper rpms - mine had a buzz at 6600 rpm but I very effectively damped it by filling my bars with BBs and installing heavier bar end weights.

I love the color scheme. The blue wheels with the white paint is fantastic, especially with the blue stripe on the tank.
