Not an owner from VA

having had a slew of naked bikes (2 Bandit 1200s, 3 Z1000s, a Buell S1, Aprilia Tuono, Moto Guzzi Griso, SV650, and a few VMAXs) Probably more, just don't remember.

The GSXS1000 intrigues me.

Talk me out of buying one.


Go!

Hmmm, you need a change from all those nakeds... buy the GSX-S1000F instead

I've had my fair share of F style bikes too.

Secretly, that's what he's hoping for.

You guys are terrible and dissuading me from buying one.


So, I picked out the burgundy and black model. Took delivery and off I went. The mirror was adjusted poorly so I stopped to adjust it with the tool kit. Once I took the seat off, I saw a huge tuft of what appeared to be yarn and seat foam. Removed the riders seat and sure enough..a giant mouse nest. Upon removal I saw the factory harness to the rectifier had been chewed and the Oem plugs as well. Went back to the dealer ship and after a bunch of apologies, had me off on the blue one about 30 minutes later.


Love it!

That's unfortunate. That you ended up with a blue one, that is. Enjoy. I paid for my red and black one a month ago and have been too busy to go pick it up. Go figure.
