Red face New bike this weekend 27th Aug 2016

Hi All

Just picked up my new GSX S1000 this weekend and have done 500km on it. The pick up day (Saturday) was blowing 40 knots and raining but scrubbed the tires in on a 160km loop south of Auckland, New Zealand.

Sunday rode with a mate and we did about 340km on a southern loop via Huntly and Kaiaua, back home to Ellerslie.
No wind, dry roads and perfect riding conditions.
Love the bike but just need to adjust the suspension to suit our roads here.
Other than that, awesome as bro.
Cheers Ed
