New GSX S1000 owner
Hello from Alabama. Just got my new GSX S1000 on October 29, 2015. I've been riding off and on for years but mostly cruisers and touring bikes for the last 5 years. I decided that I wanted a sportier bike in the stable before I get too old (currently 70 years old) but I didn't want to spend too much and I didn't want a pure sport bike like a GSX R1000 because of the riding position. Then along came the S1000 and I bought one. No regrets so far except for the snatchy throttle and no slipper clutch but I new about that before I bought it. I purchased a replacement throttle tube from my local dealer for under $20 and sent it to Gary at G2 Ergonomics (the Throttle Tamer people). Gary thinks they will come up with a Throttle Tamer for the GSX S1000 soon. So far I have removed the tank stickers, replaced the rear fender with a Yoshmura fender eliminator kit, added race spools, and changed the oil and filter at 600 miles. Looking forward to doing some track days at the Barbers Motorsports Park.
