Soon to be rider checking in

Hello, all....

Not my first bike, but my first bike in over a year since I was hit. In a few weeks I'll be purchasing a GSX S1000 ABS in black and red. I already have a list of goodies for her, and I can't wait to get started. I'm looking forward to being a part of the community here, but be gentle on me, because I expect I'll ride like a newbie for a little bit. It's been a while.

Hello and welcome from New Zealand!

Pictures when purchased please! always nice to see another come into the fold. You will be deeply impressed with your bike the more you ride her!

OH. That's what I get for not pulling up alongside a vehicle. I was sitting behind a suburban because he was about to make a right hand turn onto the freeway when someone in a cadillac rear-ended me.

My only REAL mistake was being a nice guy and not cutting the SUV off. If I had, I'd still have my Kawasaki.

Hey Steve666999! Welcome! Most of the members may not see you here as you posted to my introduction thread. I don't mind that at all, but when browsing threads the others may not know you're here to say hello because no new threads were started.

Whether you choose to leave it as is, or start a new thread, welcome and I hope that you love your bike!

Welcome Steve666999! Some nice choices on swaps before you pick up the bike! The calipers will finish it off nicely and the exhaust note is hellishly addictive on the Yoshi!!!
