G'day from melbourne, Australia

G'day guys,
just bought a GSX S1000 in black/red.
Don't have a great deal of riding experience but loving this beast. Very easy to ride, comfortable (2 hour squirt through the hills is barely a concern), more than enough power (I don't have the balls to fully open this bad boy up yet).
only negative is the throttle response is taking some time to get used to.

otherwise, I can see myself keeping this for many years.

go to throttle tamer thread. i bought one and problem solved.
Am planning to keep mine to the bitter end , right now don't feel the need to ever buy another bike .
The black/red is the only colour worth owning , unless of course bland suits you

Welcome.
Think in terms of squeezing the throttle on rather than turning it. Get some miles on and you will forget you ever had a problem.

Welcome mate, Best colour by far, ad hopefully the best style by far as well (naked *cough*).


Enjoy the ride no matter
