Hayabusa to GSX S1000F

I have been researching what to replace the Hayabusa with for a few years. Last November I test rode an F and today paid for a new F in Red/Black and will pick it up on Friday. Got my licence and first bike 51 years ago and really looking forward to this new steed. http://hayabusarider.blogspot.co.nz/

Francis Barnett 200 - my first bike in 1964
Yamaha YDS3 250 - 2 Stroke autolube, sound track 'yowler' - now a classic I should have kept.
Yamaha SR250 - commuting years
Suzuki SV1000S - return to motorcycling
Triumph Speed Triple 1050
Hayabusa 2008 - sold March 2016
GSX S1000F R&B - 18 March 2016

Welcome, I also fancied a Francis Barnett (250 Cruiser) but the Ariel Leader came out and I got that instead (1961)
I had a B-King (2011) so I can relate to your experience.

Hi mate, I've had an 04 and 08 Busa. I also ended up getting the GSXS1000 not F though. I'm loving it. Hope you enjoy yours too.

I don't think I wanted to hear that - give me a couple of months of the GSX S and I may respond.
