So i pick up my brand new white S3. I'm used to riding a honda Xr600. I tought my old bike pulled nicely.

Now i'm a changed man. I thank whomever responsible for putting a machine like this on the road. Its like cutting the wings of a jet fighter and calling it a day...

IT JUST PULLS SO UN FUCKING BELIEVABLY FAAAAAAASSTTTTTT

im in frigin heaven. It sits like a charm, it handles like a charm at any revs and i can still make it squeel up to 10k rpm feeling as if my spine is being yanked outta my back by whateverthehellpullsspinesouttabacksquickly

This has been the best day of my life, and thanks to this new bike, and these forums, there are alot more to come! :wave:

Man, I hope the fuck it pulls harder than an xr600. It's not like you bought a black one or a yellow one! Jeez man, get a clue!!! :gtfo:

Its more of a mix between that and the hard method, mix being that it rains and i need to get to know the bike. ;D

Hey what did i know something could accelerate this fast. Im just amazed by the way it pulled to such high speeds, its like the bike grabs the world and yanks it back. All goes blurry! :pow:

Glad to see you found the stupid grin.  ;)

As the bike seals up, the engine will get even better.

Now imagine the same bike with 20% more power and torque with a few easy and cheap modifications to stock parts plus an aftermarket exhaust.

:wrench:

I've been meaning to reply to this thread, because I had the same experience!! I'm glad mine was already broken in when I picked it up, so I could hammer it good right from the start ;D. Now with slip-on, TORS tune, and a header clean-up on the way, I get no end of stupid grins every time the front end comes off the ground (which is nearly every time I select first gear).

My opened-up exhaust sounds sooooo niiiiice! :afro: I think it scares old ladies...

The downside? New rear tire every 6000 miles :wtf:.
