New guy, Austin, TX

Just picked it up tonight.

I think it's incredible, and stunning. And the color matches my GT350, lol.

I put a few miles on it, didn't notice any throttle surging.

Welcome AirBusPilot!
You picked the best bike, best configuration, and best color (and my throttle is fine also)!
No really... congrats on the bike, and I hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine!

Welcome aboard, good color bike you have there, even if it is the uglier model.

Thanks! Yeah, I don't get it, I think it's incredible looking. As is the naked version.

Hard rain in Austin today, so I'll just study it.

Yup, not good riding weather. The naked really wouldn't be good in this weather, so I chose to use my "Rain Bike" for commuting duty yesterday.



I got my GSX-S in January, so you know the weather we've had until recently. Sucks to have a brand new bike in the garage and crappy weather. No worries though, you and I both will be sweating our butts off in no time at all. I need to drag my GSX-S down to your area. Lived in Texas almost 20 years and still haven't ridden the twisted sisters.

Nice one! Yeh throttle problems are totally exaggerated. You obviously know how to use your throttle hand.
Good luck with it!

I'm taking it out for a 100 mile cruise tomorrow, we'll see.

Note: I noticed a small, probably less than a 1/4 oz, of oil underneath it this morning. I looked around and found the oil drain plug was leaking. It had a white marker line that was lined up. I put a socket wrench on it and it turned maybe 3/4 of a turn to be tight. 12 hours later, still no leaks. The bike had ZERO miles, not even a tenth of a mile when I loaded on the trailer from the dealer. I also noticed the oil drain bolt was marred a little. I'm thinking whoever assembled and torqued the bolt in Japan had the socket slip, and it wasn't torqued correctly. The 1/2 mile I put on the bike when I got it home was enough to start a leak. Oil checks near full on the site glass.

I'll conclude that was a fluke. Called the dealer, they offered to come pick up the bike and check it, I told him it wasn't necessary, but thanked them anyway.
