New GSX-S1000 Owner

Hey,

Just joined after purchasing a brand new GSX-S1000 from the dealership yesterday,it was a bike to have after a test ride but i won't be picking it up till Saturday as i have some accessories being added.

I'm not a new rider and this beauty will be joining the stable with a 2008 Limited Edition Hayabusa and a 2008 Harley Davidson 883/1200[Fathers].

The reason why i decided to consider purchasing a naked/another motorcycle was because i ride 7 days a week and after receiving some rare micron exhaust for my Busa,it officially retires from work duty and becomes a weekend bike,thats where this beauty steps in.

My current beauty.

What are you doing on this forum?..Looking at changing camps?.

I'll be putting the stead through the paces on Saturday and Sunday and will definitely let you know how it goes.

Been meaning to come on some rides but since the accident,bit hesitant to ride much.

As promised,took me over 2 years of searching eBay every second day and finally found a set in Ireland. These pipes weren't very popular due to the lack of support against the larger competitors. 100% Titanium and $1300 later,i did find a set attached to a motorcycle in a dealership but they were pushing numbers upwards of $1500 for a well used set.

1.7kgs each pipe compared to 10-12kgs for each original pipe,i cannot be happier. Now i need to decide if i would like an exhaust for the new bike,only dilemma is i'll have a rack that mounts to the pillion pegs but i do see aftermarket pipes piggyback of it aswell.
