Thumbs up Hello from SE Iowa.

New owner of a 2016 GSX-S1000F.
Previous bike was a 2007 Bandit.
Have had it about ten days and I'm riding as much as weather and work permits.
Looking forward to many good conversations here.

Hey Sd.

Today's the day I may do just as you've done. My 07 Bandit has been an amazing bike and trading it will be difficult. I've been reading of the tons of low end grunt. Do you find the Gsx to be as entertaining as your Bandit?? I'm not a top end guy but I love the low end ..rather be quick than fast. Bandit was a blast in this respect. Also the throttle thing. Any issues?? I don't think that's a deal breaker for me. If it's there, I'll deal with. Congrats on the new ride.

I also had a bandit. An air cooled 2001 and it was the best bike I ever owned. I hope the gsx-s will be as good over the long haul. It is much more powerful and still has super low speed torque. So far I'm lovin it.

Good to hear rdav1031 as I pulled the trigger today on a blue one. Picking it up when CNY weather permits. Can't wait. Bummin about sayin goodbye to my big Bandit but hope a few miles down the road I'll forget all about it.
