    It was a beautiful day in the PNW, not a cloud in the sky and 50's. Took the Corvette to fill up with ethanol free, did some yard work, and went for a ride on the 1260. This thing is brutal now after the RS carbs. Throttle is Off or Hang the F*$k on....

    Well it may have not been the smartest idea...but mentally it made me feel better.

    I really appreciate the support guys, it means a lot.

    We certainly have polar opposite weather right now! We had a perfect spring day yesterday for our Saturday morning ride. Lots of fun, very little traffic, and another attendee on his "stock" GSX1100 as well.

    Gee, I didn't know "stock" GS1100s had big turbos on them.

    Glad to see you back in the saddle Trevor! I know it was probably a short ride and you're on the mend but what was your initial impression of the GSX-S 1000?

    Thanks...Oh my...I was impressed with the comfort. Not much wind protection...going to work on that. The throttle is super responsive..that will take some getting used to. Took it out on the highway and got into it a bit, took it close to the 11,500 redline in 2nd...yikes...it's fast!
    I'm already looking at getting a Hindle full exhaust with a power commander and a Quick shifter...My bmw has a quick shifter and it's fun. The GSXS is around 147hp but it can be brought up pretty easily another 15-20hp. Trading out the exhaust should bring the curb weight down to about 450ibs...

    It gives me hope too. Now it's stupid question time: If the bike was lying on it's side, could you get it upright? I think I could ride now, but I don't think I'll ever be able to pick up a bike again...at least not my 11E.

    Congrats on getting back on the horse.
