Welcome and well done on getting one so early! I can't even get an arrival date from my dealer. I'm also in QLD.

Where'd you buy it from?

Another Aussie. Hey dude.

You are lucky. I rang Peter Stevens Friday and they will not get them in till next week at the earliest.

Seems to be mostly banana benders here :)

Bike looks great, the blue is really starting grow on me.

That sounds like a nice easy sale...What'd they end up charging you for it?

was a very easy sale

it was just rrp so 14k and some change

went out today with the guys from the dealership they had the red/black one out with us , its nicer then the pics do it justice but i thinks the blue is nicer and its the iconic suzuki color

if your up this way you shoud drop in and take it for a cruse

i got alot of run around for other bike shops (wont name and shame)

so marty where you from in qld?

Ah cool, I'd seen that price on the Facebook post, was just interested in any dealer variations, but that's good to hear.

I'm up in Gladstone, so its a good 6-7hr drive to get down there. Though, I'm willing to make my way down to get one, if the dealer up here can't get me one in a reasonable time frame.

However, I'm hoping that since Brisbane is starting to get them in stock, the dealer up here might see one late this week

A good salesman can make the difference, especially whether or not you go back to the store.

I've got a rostered day off on friday, so maybe I'll get lucky and it'll be in by then.

Sounds like a plan, always keen to for a bike ride and meeting new riders :) The guys I ride with did a trip down to Kenilworth a week or two ago... Kenilworth on the Friday and then Mt Glorious and Mt Mee on the Saturday :)

from Kenilworth the better ride would be nambour up to montville then down to pechester then turn around and go back or head to highway and go straight back to Kenilworth

just my 2 cents lol

i did that ride today in other direction and is was i good ride with smooth roads and plenty of twisties but also nice places to see and eat at

Just had a look at that on google maps, doesn't look too bad, I haven't done that run before.

What do you think of the Maleny to Kenilworth run? There's some really nice corners that side of Kenilworth

never done a kenilworth run might have to give it a look and maybe got for a run

went to dealership today they told me you rang

the boys said if you bought a bike they would probably meet you half way with the work ute and swap bikes there lol

It was a nice run last time I did it, but its probably been a year since I did it last.

Yeah, they were really helpful and, the only dealer I've talked to that's actually all over getting this bike in and selling it.

If the dealer here can't give me any solid info by the end of the week, I'll be talking to the guys in brissy again and organising to come down the following weekend.

Hey guys, I'm keen to get the new GSX-S, but there seems to be no blue stock around... what are your thoughts on the grey? If it were matte black I'd instantly grab it... but yeah, no blue :(

P.s. Also in Brissy, keen to join on rides once I get the bike :D

got my blue one from brisbane motorcycle centre caboolture

i belive they have a red one there and there was talk of another blue one on way but dont know if its there


if your northside i can come for a ride let you look at my blue one give you and idea of color


ive seen red in person and it was a nice red but for me the blue was the only choice, ive never seen the gray but for me i like to be seen but car drives so it was only ever going to be blue or red for me

Hi Mat,

Thanks for the offer. I've test ridden the bike already and seen all 3 colours in person. I did not like the Black & Red one bit, the red ruined it as it was a yuk red. The grey is "ok" but no where near as nice as the blue.

Looks like I'm waiting until October for the blue now :(

When it arrives we'll have to do a Brisbane Gixxus ride :D
