New GSXS in Ohio

Hello from Ohio, picked up a new '16 F in the black/red at the end of October. Rode it home from the dealership (about 120 miles) but thats about the only seat time i've had thus far with the cold and rainy weather here lately. Looking forward to putting some miles on the bike and enjoying it. Mods planned are to install Pazzo levers, t-rex sliders, a smoke wind shield and possibly some type of fender eliminator.

Welcome! Nice bike choice. I hope the weather allows you (and me) to get some more miles in this year. It's too cold here (Utah), for me and my normal commute lately. I'm keeping the tank topped off and use some Stabil, just in case I can't ride for a month.

Congrats! And welcome!! My first GSX-S1000f was from Ohio, too

I would look at the suspension before you spend money on anything else. Get it set up right for you, and change springs/shock as necessary for your weight and ability. It's AMAZING what difference can be.

Welcome Aboard
and if you do ride it in cold and wet conditions I would recommend a fender extender for the front.
The spray has a tendancey to saturate the radiator and when you come to a stop you get a load of steam rising up under your chin

Appreciate the advice, frustrating buying at the end of riding season and not being able to ride and adjust to my preferences. But its first on the agenda for sure.

Nice one congratulations! Yes with those mods the bike will be more personalised. Suspension is fine just adjust it correctly for your weight and riding.

Congrats on the bike. I think that we need to put together a Cbus metro GSXS ride next year. No mods here except for an O2 eliminator. I keep trying to talk myself into a fuel controller.
