I would like to introduce myself. I just picked up a new 2016 GSX-S1000 in Metallic Triton Blue last Monday. What a bike! It has something around 290 miles as of tonight.
I had narrowed it down to the FZ-09 or this bike. I was leaning towards the FZ since I had already ridden one and loved how nimble it was. But after test riding them back to back, the decision was a no-brainer. The Suzuki was just a lot more comfortable to me (felt like the FZ was pushing my crotch into the tank and didn't like the brake dive and pogo-stick shock) and also felt a bit faster. That combined with the ABS and TC made it a very easy decision.
As for mods, I have already installed a Vagabond fender eliminator. I also ordered clear lenses and stealth bulbs for the stock turn indicators, which I hope will look stock but a lot cleaner than the amber ones. I also plan on ordering some fender bolts to replace the bits that are holding the front reflectors.
Anyway, I look forward to contributing to this community as much as I can. Thanks for reading.
