What you guys think?

What do you think of me buying a 2016 Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS blue 2105 miles @ $6990? Dealership in Arkansas

Thanks for the help guys. I had a 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit, bought new, sold it a few years back. Ready to ride again. Do you lean forward alot or are you more in an upright position?

Welcome Jim, I have a 2016 Blue F and that seems like a reasonable deal. The seating is fairly upright. Kind of a cross between race bike lean, and adventure bike upright. Coming from a Spirit, I think you will love it. Much more engaged rider position than a cruiser IMHO.

That's a good deal. They knock a bunch off the price because it's the ugly F model.

Oh wait, am I supposed to make fun after they buy the bike? Oops.

Seriously, buy it, these bikes are amazing and you won't notice how ugly it is when you are riding it. Ok, so only partially serious.

Buy it Jim, you won't be sorry, unless it has been previously wrecked or something like that. I love mine. (2016 F -Red and black).

She is not ugly if you really love her!

The riding position is truly amazing, engaging yet comfortable. Suzuki nailed the geometry of this bike.

This brings up a good question. Is it new or used? There have been some good deals on leftover 2016's this year, not sure if they've all been scooped up.

2105 miles rules out new.
