Welcome aboard! What made you make the jump from a Ninja 1000 to the S1000? They're pretty similar.

I can't believe so many people don't like the stock seat on this bike, it's one of the most comfortable stock seats I've ever sat on (in my opinion).

I agree on both, the seat is awesome and never have I thought about doing anything with it, also i would be just as happy with the ninja myself, some times it would suit more for touring but other times I like the smaller feeling of the gsx for the sportier ride but both are good bikes.

Agreed. I was looking into the Ninja 1000 myself. They're kind of pricey though if comparing apples to apples. Plus, naked is the look for me and I do not like the Z1000 at all.

I was a fan of the Z1000 black and maroon colour scheme and thought it looked great except for the pointing down headlight looked hideous, yes the difference in price deterred me also so I brought the GSXS and a second hand Vstrom for long loaded up tours to make up the difference in price and couldn't be happier with the combination .

Suzuki Man - Congrats!! I hope the bike proves to be everything you're looking for. There is a thread or two on adjusting the suspension. It doesn't take much time at all to dial in, and a few adjustments make such a huge difference.

I also found that properly adjusting the rake (or the riding height of the front and rear) the seat became a little more tolerable. I was sliding forward a lot at first, now it's not so bad but I still want Sargent to customize my seat. Unfortunately they don't offer a World Sport seat for our bikes (yet?), so we have to send in a seat for customization.
