Greetings from New Zealand

Greetings everyone!

I'm Geoff and I'm 68 on Sunday - still growing old disgracefully .

I've been riding for over 50 years and the last 6 years have seen me riding a Street Triple and for 8 years before that, a Honda Blackbird. Coming to a Suzuki GSX-S came as rather a surprise as I'd intended to buy a new Street Triple RX!

The tale of how the Suzuki came about is here on my blog if anyone is interested: Confessions of an Ageing Motorcyclist: Taken by complete surprise! . They've only recently been released in NZ and mine will be here in a week when the new shipment arrives.

Really looking forward to learning all about the bike on this site!

Best regards,

Geoff

Good on you Geoff. I think once you get Suzi you may not go back to the trumph.
Whatever you decide to do keep it shiny side up.

Hi Geoff from an even older disgraceful hooligan rider.
This bike will not help you slow down, it just wants to gooooooo!
A better choice than the Triumph in my opinion.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

I'm really looking forward to taking delivery. I'll do a comparison with the Street Triple on the blog in a few weeks. In the meantime, I've got a lot of reading to do on the forum

Hi Geoff, welcome from Italy
IMAHO Suzi is a step up Triumph......but you have to follow your heart and buy the bike that makes you happy
