Another new GSX 1250 Owner

Post  DCQ on Mon 18 Feb 2013, 4:36 pm

Hi Guys,
Will be picking up my new 2011 GSX 1250FA (old floor stock) in a couple of weeks, and I'm very excited!
I'm in Western Sydney (Penrith Area) and just getting back into riding. I started on a GPX250 a long long time ago, had a few bikes in between, and after a 6 year break I'm riding again.
This will be my daily commuter into the city (60 odd Km's each way), some motorway and lots of traffic, and I'm all ears when it comes to any advice about the bike or related topics, and happy to share my (limited) experiences.
After looking around the forum the last couple of days I've been thinking about what accessories I should get for the bike. So far I'm thinking HID lights, maybe a Chain Oiler and a radiator guard.
Any opinions on these or other accessories?
Look forward to chatting,
Derrick.

Welcome DCQ. The mods question periodically comes up, mostly from new Bandit owners (no surprises there). Check here for a useful related thread or type "mods" into the search engine to see even more suggestions and discussion. Hve fun bouncebounce.

Hello and welcome. You'd better add a "penis extender" to your list of accessories. I was talked into getting one, and it works well Suspect!

We were all told on the quiet you needed one and you had been told before apparently Laughing
