Finally pulled the trigger and bought a GSX-S1000 ABS in Triton blue. Found several dealers in the area who would do the bike at $8500 otd. One dealer had two red/black, the other had blue and also a blue F model for they would do for $9000 otd. THAT was the hard choice. So much so I probably spend 45 minutes trying to choose at the dealer with the salesguy waiting for my decision. After all that time I chose the faired version. He went to get the paperwork and while he was gone I changed my mind haha. I decided I just didn't want a sport bike look, I wanted a naked/street fighter. I'll put a small screen on it to take the wind off my torso and a tail tidy to clean up the rear. First impression: HOLY F**K! This is the most powerful, fastest bike I have ever rode. The power is just incredible. Its everywhere. I pretty much just kept it in 6th on my way home from the dealer to keep the revs low for proper break-in......and to calibrate my brain and right hand to the throttle. Did not notice any snatchy throttle, but I wasn't trying to do steady speeds either. Once the break in is complete I'll have a better opinion of my throttle.
