So long story short of things is this, i was looking at the N1K very hard, ran across the GSXS on a review but thought it would be a POS

well i went checked out and nearly fell in love with the N1K until i got bored and figured i would go check out the Suzuki dealership just to make sure I had no regrets

sat on the S1000F and that will be my next bike, it was an instant love affair

I am waiting on a few things before the purchase
1: the money from my current house when the sale is final
2: the current promotion to change to a rebate
3: the bike to be available in the colors i want....

until then do not be surprised about me trolling your forums

I also considered the Ninja. I did not get it because: it was heaver, less power, not as good in the corners, and more expensive. However, I did like the fact that it had bags. Of course, you can buy the bags for the Suzie.

gear came first, bought most of it today (bit of a pinch on the old wallet but necessary)
next is going to be getting rid of the **** ugly tail, looks like it was rear ended by and angry drone
after that i will probably never mod it, i dream of full exhaust power commander etc etc etc but i do not need any of them and they do not really cry "spend 2 grand on me"
