Suzuki GSX650F. Been riding all day and here is what I think of it: After turning the bike around on a small hill to face the right way, I noticed how heavy the bike was, i was concerned that i might drop it , anyway I fired it up - its very quiet - but looks like it should sound louder with the big fat exhaust pipe! I'll add a slip on muffler later. The bike has an upright riding position , and that's what i like about it the most, once cruising along, the bike feels like it is glued to the road - even in the wet. I have previously been riding a Suzuki GS500 and always found it alarming to go into corners .However, on the GSX650F, the bike encourages you to go into corners very quickly. In fact, I was going around the corners today at two and half times the posted limit, even more at times, even though the road was wet, and felt totally confident. It was like the bike was talking to me telling me it wanted to go into the corners fast ,as you approach a corner or bend it says 'go on do it ,it will be right'....and I'm a novice just licenced! I just couldn't believe the ease with which it went around the corners and bends with some speed.....it felt like it was on rails. The slogan for their advertising should be "It makes bad riders look good!... and rename it gsx650C .C for Corners! The instrument panel has a gear box light which tells you which gear you're in - this is a blessing for me because i'm not always sure what gear i'm in! But hey no problem! And the gears are really easy to find. The digital petrol gauge is great too, bars disappear as it gets low.The bike does'nt have a reserve tap on the tank or a centre stand, but it should and i will add a centre stand asap. Straight line performance is adequate ! The bike is so smooth that it feels like its floating just above the ground, and the wind does'nt seem to bother it either , she cuts through the air like a F1-11 even at 150km/h you dont feel like you have to hang on for dear life.The seat is comfortable for long spurts. The brakes work fine and don't feel too touchy. I enjoyed riding it all day and finally found a bike that ticks all boxes, no problem in traffic , price ten grand brand new - bargain, 4 cyclinder sound, fairing , color , comfort, straight line speed , goes around corners easy, and gear box display. The weekend visits to the bike shops are over and the motorcycle trader magazines have now been delegated to the recycle bin ! thank god for that !
