Hello all :)

Hi all, i hope everyone has had a good weekend and enjoyed the sun.

Today i picked up my 9th bike in 2 years, a 2017 GSX-S1000 in Phantom Black, 2k miles, only extra included is Oxford heated grips.

Previous bikes have been:

2007 Honda CBR125R (CBT)
2016 KTM Duke 125 (CBT)
2012 Triumph Street Triple
2012 Husqvarna Nuda 900
2016 Yamaha MT-07
2015 BMW S1000Rs
2015 Triumph Street Triple R
2014 Yamaha MT-09

As you can see, i like to change bikes a lot

Anyway, here's some pictures of my new bike.





Got some mods planned, Tail tidy, Quickshifter, Full exhaust system and some new mirrors.

Welcome Kieran_89. Sweet looking bike. Be interested in hearing how it compares to you other bikes and what caused you to choose the GSX-S1000

Compared to my other bikes, it's leagues ahead of 90% of them, the BMW S1000Rs i had was just epic, so much power, torque, road presence, everywhere i went, people asked me about it, I've only had this new one 2 days so I'm hoping it gets the same reaction

Performance is better, i absolutely despised the 09 suspension, it was very poor even on a budget bike, i only had it 8 weeks and it was awful, really soft suspension, brakes were the worst I've ever used but the triple engine was great, catapults you forward in any gear, just a shame it got let down with everything else on the bike.
