Hello fellow Suzuki riders

I've been riding a hayabusa for 9 years and a SV 650 for 4 years. I'm looking at picking up a 16 GSXS in the next couple of weeks. The SV is going, so I need a replacement and some displacement too. I was looking at a used Tuono but the intake cam problems scared me away. I then set my sights on an EBR 1190sx but I like riding not sitting on the side of the road or working on a new bike. Lots of issues but a great bike anyway. So, I have had great success with two Suzuki's 70k on one 21k on the other, so why buy something else. I have been looking at several dealerships, I'm just patiently waiting for the right deal.

I also came off a 2012 hayabusa worried a little that I would miss the power, but fell in love with the handling and engine of the gsxs no regrets at all.

I'll still have my hayabusa but the top end is already gone, I'm up 3 teeth in the back to shorten the wheelbase. I'm 50 years old just looking for something more comfortable besides the SV 650 with clipons.
