G_day Everyone

Here’s my intro...


First I don’t ......bite!

Traded in a 2016 MT09 on a new 2018 GSX S1000 a few months ago & have been reading the posts here!
Just joined up!

Am a Surfer, Kitesurfer , motor & bike enthusiast, & can’t sit still for a minute, need to be on the move always!

And never say one sport is the best! Or better than another, same goes for bikes & cars. Every bike has something
special about it.

Motorcycling = freedom,

Been riding for 50yrs started out on mini bikes than rode Yamaha 2 stoke motorcross , Yamaha LC,RD,RZ road bikes.
Was bloody hard to adjust to four strokes! All good with 4 stokes now!


Cheers

Welcome BigDog! I'd be curious to hear your opinion of the MT09 vs the GSX-S. I owned an MT07 before my GSX-S(F) and sometimes I miss that light weight wheelie machine with the low end grunt. ;)

Hi Mike,

Did 30000kms in two years is rain hail & shine on the MT09 most of the time in A mode, had a Akra race pipe. + high seat, used it as a Commuter to work,every 2 yrs i feel like a change. Did miss it a lot at first.
Have rode the MT07 awesome machine , both love to wheelie, MT09s engine is a gem ,triples are indeed very high in torque had to learn to steer on the back wheel in the first 3 gears , super light front end = power wheelies around 100-200m high with your weight over the front wheel,And it was real easy to slingshot off the mark in traffic due to the bike is so light , Braking was also great in dry weather but cornering can catch you out real easy,never did have the confidence to push it hard through the Twisties , the GSX is way better / planted cornering.

Having said that their two totally different bikes, would a lot of writing to explain.but eg.
First it’s the gearing MT09 is very low gearing from 1st to 3rd , the GSX is super tall in first then the rest is close ratio.
I didn’t like the GSX off the line, so I changed to 1 tooth smaller socket on the front which am happy with the result.
the GSX is next level in Quality , comfort & performance that top end is ballistic.
Just purchased the Dominator decat eliminator & was delivered today , Haven’t opened it yet the box feels like there’s nothing in it,so light 😀will have it fitted & reflashed in a few weeks by RB racing here in Sydney, so am reading the decat posts very closely seems to be the best bang for your buck mod.


Cheers!

Ride hard

Guess my sense of humour playing on your comment about not biting combined with the idea that Australia has a huge number of dangerous creatures didn't translate too well
