Just put a deposit down on a Sport SE with Nav in blue.  Dealer needs to register it before the end of the month, but I won't be able to pick it up until the following weekend  :012:

Secured a deal trading in my '15 GSX-S1000F that I couldn't say no to... can't wait to pick it up  :002: :305: :305:

I always mod my bikes, but I don't think there will be much on the list for this one..... end can, possibly screen if the standard one doesn't perform, rad guards, possibly tidy up the rear a bit and that's about all I'm planning (for now at least!)

Oh nice one mate!! Send the obligatory pics once collected!
I’ve got an evotech tail tidy and black grab handles, plus large hugger and short black screen for the blasts around, looks really nice I think, then change out for touring mode, big screen, bmw top box and Shad panniers!
Enjoy!  :305:

Cheers for the welcome  :028:

Not sure if I will go for a tail tidy straight away, but I do want to remove the luggage supports, mud guard thing under the number plate and get some black grab handles to loose the luggage rack.

Oh, and a smaller number plate.... some crash protection....  maybe my list is longer than I thought  :001: Still, I have a ton of aftermarket stuff to take off the GSX-S and sell to fund my addiction  :015: :015:

 :408: Hi Yep bikes are a bloody addiction. You will not be disappointed though great bike straight out of the box. But always room for the odd bit of bling... :001: :001: :001:

Finally picked it up this morning, wow what a 90 mile ride back from the dealers, this thing it one enjoyable machine!

6 hours old and I've already removed the pannier racks, removed the mud guard, fitted the battery tender cable, replaced the headlamp bulbs and removed the side reflectors  :028:
