Hi Folks
Just to let you know. Got the GSX-S1000 unfaired abs this morning. First impression , brilliant. The MV piece of ****e Brutale 800 that I got rid of after just 13 months of ownership initially has more of a fierce take off, but this Suzuki appears faultless.
Throttle response, comfort, the ride, handling and the power, all appears excellent.
I had gone from 22 Japanese bikes to an Aprilia RSV and to this recent MV for the last 13 months. I did 2000 miles, a 1000 must have been done going to the dealer for problems and repairs!!!
Big ride tomorrow to Settle, Hawes and Devils bridge.
Ive fitted a tail tidy, rim tape, tank pad, smaller plate, removed the rear pegs and the new exhaust is on its way from Italy as we speak.
Regards
Lee >:D

Just noticed the tyres are from 2012 !! WTF. They are crap. Think I will change to Pilot 4's Michelin. Anyone know why they have done this.

That's the one, better than the R&G one and a lot cheaper. The only thing I had to do was extend the led light cable with a little bit more to reach the main connection. I just chock block connected it.

WELCOME


Nice job looks great with that shorter plate bracket. (a must have accessory)


My first long ride was to Settle, Hawes and Devils bridge via Southport, Quernmore and Caton.
