Talking Is This a Great Bike or What?

Hi all! I'm a newbie to forum. Just picked up a super blue gsx-s1000F last Monday. Perhaps I'm weak minded, but I like it as is; that is, no plans of pipe, nitrous, turbo, etc .

Just put first tank through it today--here's on the numbers: 170.1 miles on 3.74 gallons (45.48 mpg). Wonder what these get if you ride like a "normal" human (ie, no wheelies, ton up, and the like). Bike is so comfortable etc. Came off a R1100S bmer and this such a breath of fresh air, especially come time to pass (ha).

Anyway, look forward to this gsx info resource.

Welcome rickster.
Just wondering what mpg your bike computer said. I've found mine to be quite accurate, like within +/- 2 mpg.

DTM74, I like the kind of chunky-chatty sound it can make.
Zak, Thanks.
Dekker, Good question--I believe it was pretty close, but it was so high I to what I'd been used too that didn't pay any attention.
