G'Day Craig,
Welcome back Mate, but you never really went away did you?
Good artistry in the selection of the photo's you posted up today. I looked straight past the GSX-S on first look, just smiling at the Falcon Ute with the new tray.
Then I looked at the Avatar column to see Australia. I was actually wondering to myself " I didn't know Ford in the USA sold our Falcon Ute over there ?" as the scene looks so American backwoods.
That setting sun really set's off the GSX-S1000 colour's.
Of course, the Red and Black was always my pick of the bunch, but my second 1000 in Blue looks good too.

Rob.

Yeah mate you are right
The GSXS-1000 had me bitten at first sight
I live on acreage perfect riding area
Mt Glorious, Ma Ma Creek , Canungra all close by
I think our FG utes would have been popular in the USA

Three (!) of essentially the same bike?

And going (repeatedly, I assume) between the GSXS & a Harley?

If you don't mind me asking, how/why have those two things happened for you?

Hi Verbatim
I really enjoy the feeling of a Street Glide super comfortable and my wife is comfortable on it but the pure riding sensation of the GSXS-1000 is something else
I often have one of each at the same time but two mistress is too expensive when I canít leave things standard
Ride safe

Welcome back Bluedeuce! To be on your third one is pretty good testimony for the GSX-S1000!

Hey, you finally got the correct color bike
Good to have you back. Great pictures, as Rob noted.

In the long run, buying/selling/modding is more expensive.

And what on earth is that car/truck thing? Quite the example of modding gone wrong.

It's a ute. It's similar to what Americans call a "truck", but not retardedly oversized. Very common in NZ and Aus.
