Welcome, nice bike. I went from a GSX-R750 to the GSX-S1000 and my first ride I realized I could have probably been quite happy with the 750 version. Of course, I've since gotten used to it but I imagine the 750 is quite the bike. Yes, it's true, the blue ones are faster, as I have the blue one, but Suzuki knew we couldn't handle these bikes in the fastest Yellow/Black combo so it hasn't been offered.
Your photo is awfully devoid of that dreaded white stuff for it being Canada, you getting any riding in yet?
