    Dave's new bike.

    Sorry I haven't been on here very much at all lately, have been very busy with work, too much !
    I still have my CB but recently sold my two smaller bikes and after some saving up I bought this just over a week ago, a new Suzuki GSXS1000F.
    First impressions are that the handling is exceptionally good even on stock settings, firmer than the CB yet still compliant and it inspires confidence.
    Also the stock exhaust sounds [and looks] surprisingly good IMO, although I'm limited to 5000rpm for the 1st 500 miles [Quite strict and specific running in recommendations for nowadays ?] the engine has loads of low down torque and I can tell it will be great when fully run in.
    So far I've fitted a tail tidy,seat cowl [also removed rear footrests] and a MRA DB sports screen, not sure about this yet as it's bigger than expected but I'm warming to it.

    Looks good. Agree about screen love to see it full on as sideon looks tall.

    Hope you enjoy it as you get past the running in part.

    Great bikes by all accounts - what surprised me were that the mirrors are handlebar mounted as per the naked - as opposed to integrating them into the fairing ....

    Yes that's a bit unusual, having said that they do work very well.

    Yes fairly new but the naked version has been around longer, around a year now I think ?

    Yes I saw my first at the Calne Bike show last year and think they were out a month before. Thought the naked looked like a good follow on from the CB

    Yes the naked version is a lot like the CB , mind you they have close to 140bhp at the back wheel so I'm looking forward to tapping into that once run in.
