Welcome to the forum. I would be very interested as to why you chose GSXS over S1000R and Tuono.
I was in the similar boat last year I road tested both. Liked Tuono but thought it should be more a weekend bike ans not for every day. S1000R was great too but I found it just a bit sterile and too safe lol.
I wanted something raw and bought Brutale 1090 and loved it. They didn't have GSXS then so I didn't try it.
Was it hard to install the Ventura Rack? I need to do one too.
Found the Aprillia V4 too rough off idle - maybe used to inline 4's. Liked the BWM great motor but $10k more for not much better.
Ventura racks are easy to fit but buy a good allen key set as the factory lock tight the bolts and you need leverage to cleanly remove them.
Have had the GSXS for a week now and is its feeling better every ride. Feels light around town and great in the hills. Don't like the Suzuki mirrors much compared to the Honda, but i need to adjust them better and looks like you need to have the spanner/s out to lock them rather than just moving them. I know small issue, otherwise such a good bike.
