(PS - definitely not dogging the 750...please don't take it that way. The 750s are lighter and lighter can be 'righter' )
I saw a '19 GSXS 1000 Naked for $6k on Craigslist a while back. There's certainly some room to throw on some upgrades for that price.

Wow. A 2019 for $6K is a steal. Yep, plenty of room in the budget for upgrades with a price like that.

It is funny how often a bike reaches the end of it's current registration and starts getting looked at as 'trade-in' material. Been there, done that. It's hard because there is always something else out there to tempt us and every bike is a compromise in some area or another. Want lighter? More power? More sporty? More bodywork? Less bodywork? Standard riding position? Better brakes? Better luggage options? It could drive a guy crazy trying to pick "the" bike when they all have pros and cons. It sounds like your 750 is striking a good balance for you at the moment. I think I sometimes lose sight of how powerful and fun a 750 really is. We are so jaded by literbikes at times. Keep us posted if you make a move to something else.

I actually talked to the guy today, it's still for sale but, while it's listed as a '19, it's actually an '18 with about 10k miles. Still not a bad deal.

And sometimes, as I found myself thinking the other day while riding the GSX-S, you just think "This bike is amazing, I'm NEVER getting rid of it!"

Of course, the simple expensive answer to the temptations is to get a bigger garage and have choices when you go to ride. Multiple bikes are the way to go. You need to either accept that you won't have the latest and greatest bikes, or you will spend a ton of money. But shopping the used market can make it possible.

I have looked at a myriad of bikes, but when it comes down to dependability, level of excitement while riding, service center at hand, nothing compares to the GSXS for me. Maybe an MT10. When I sell this one, it will probably be to get a newer model.

I'll bet Jay Leno has that problem too (not).

Sometimes I think the only thing that keeps me financially responsible is the size of my bike shed. - only room for two bikes.
... but I only have one now.

Just reiterating what has been said before maybe, but I have never sold a bike because they were "bad". It is, without fail, rather because of the deadly, inescapable itch. The GSX S was a particularly nasty itch and I dumped a relatively new and perfectly fine naked 750 plus a well loved ol Harley to purhase a new z-model last year. I am weak, a little ashamed of my betrayal of those two loyal friends... but still quite happy with the new girl&#x1f60d;

Yes, the new girl is 'hot' and will give you all the others did and more. You made the right choice. Those other two bikes were mere 'place-holders' until you could get on this hottie, the GSX-S1000Z!
