So if you own a gixxer, does that make one by default a squid?

Nah. Gixxer's just a trendy universal cool biker word. My ex didn't know about bikes but one day she told me her ex used be a really good rider cause he rode a "gixter". He was like in a group or something with these other fast dudes that rode gixters too.

When you don't know about bikes, you don't know about gear either. BUT you've heard that magical word that'll get you cool points when trying to get into riding: gixxer.
Just my two.

Isnt a busa a GSX1300R (GSXR) so the poll actually covers it too

I think its the fact that its the most recognizable bike and Gixxer is the common word for sportbikes when dealing with ppl that dont ride

I get ppl all the time at work see me with my gear and ask me if I ride a "gixxer"

Its kinda like the word Coke...ppl ask you what kind of "coke" would u like?

this.

one time i was hanging out with some friends and this mutual friend (douche-master3000) decided to come talk to me. with red cup of beer in hand he asks the everlong question "man so what kinda bike is that, dude?" so i reply "kawasaki" and hes like "oh yeah, those are cool," and the inevitable, cliche 'im cool too remark' follows " im gonna get a bike pretty soon here too".. to which i enterain: "oh yeah, what kind?" - "aw dude im gonna get a GIXXER" so i ask him "so who makes that anyway?"........... " " was all he had.

kinda sad. i get this convo alot.

I voted for GSXR, duh. It's POPULAR.

You wouldn't believe the comments I get on my 'Ducati' ALL the time. I typically just stare at them blankly, tell them it's NOT a Ducati, then walk away. I do not engage them in conversation unless I'm trying to gear up. In that case I put my helmet on first then mumble a bunch of .

They have no interest in what you ride, these individuals are only wishing you were riding them. Giddyup!
