G'Day from Australia

Just bought a used 2018 GSX-S1000F with 2100km. Picking it up tomorrow morning and then the 5 hour ride home. Got the bike in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia but I live in Goondiwindi. I'm upgrading from a 2013 CFMoto 650TK and after experiencing the test ride it is a huge upgrade.
I've been poking around the forums for the last few days. Everyone seems quite helpful. Glad to be joining such an illustrious group

Rob

Welcome Aboard Rob
Sounds like you're going to be getting used to the bike pretty quick.
Good luck on the ride home

Welcome Rob. It will be good to hear your impressions after your long ride back.
I love my "F".

Welcome. When i first read your screen name I thought it said AnginaRob. Then I put my glasses on. Glad your heart is OK because the 1000 will test it.

Welcome. Nothing like a 2018 "f"; especially a White 2018 "f". Enjoy.

Welcome aboard and hope it is safe to ride mate. Bushfires are wrecking havoc around there and it has been a shitty week. Hope the rest of our Oz mates are safe n sound

Hi Rob,
The New Goondiwindi Grey ? Or a Boggabilla Blue ? Not likely, as Grey I think was dropped by 2018.
You'll be leaving the Big Smoke in Brisbane in real smoke and dust. Hope the sky clears on the ride home.

Rob.

Good to have you here @AmigaBob ! Seems like you picked up a great bike and got a chance to try it out and get to know it on your five hour ride home. Hopefully the smoke and fires weren't an issue for you. Post up your first impressions when you get a chance.

Still messing around with the finance company, so I won't be picking it up until this afternoon at the earliest. So, one more Brisbane run for my old 2013 CFMoto 650TK.

FYI, it is the red one

Rob.

Maybe a Riddles Oval Red? There is literally no town within a 200km that begins with an 'R'. I could get a pictures in front of the Gunsynd statue in town
