Just passed 600 miles on my new 2018 GS310

Hey everyone, just wanted to join in the GS310 fun, share some of my experiences and read about all of yours.

Just passed my 600 miles, clean service check, and I'm enjoying pushing her finally past 6k rev.

She's my second bike and quite different from my first (1972 Honda CB-350), but I was looking for something that could be both my daily commuter and also something I could take off road for some "lite" adventuring.

For starters, I'll say I'm overall quite happy with the bike. She's definitely a lot taller than my other, and given I'm just 5ft 6in. it's a bit like mounting a horse , but she's light enough that I feel more than comfortable.

The little thumper does quite nicely on pavement. Though I will say the harmonics get pretty viby around 6K. Can sometimes send a shiver up my spine. Now that I can blow past that into 7K range, all good.

Glad to be a part of the growing 310GS community! Safe riding to all!

I still have 200 miles to ride for full breakin, but I noticed the viby and noisy harmonics as well at 105/110 km/h - 65 mph.

welcome to this forum.
I hope you will enjoy all our threads.
Mine still produces vibes after putting 3000 km on the clock.
You get used to it, it's a single cylinder ;-))
