Congrat's on your new-to-you ride. Just remember to grip the tank with your knees, keep your elbow's bent, weight on your footpegs and use your abs (abdominal muscles-not braking system
) to help keep weight off your hands. As a fellow K-RS rider, I would be very interested in hearing your comparative analysis between the GS and the RS. I read so much great stuff about the GS's, yet given the choice you chose the RS. I know why the RS is such a great bike, now why is it better (to you) than the GS? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks and enjoy the smoothest bike on the planet.
