I think not necessarily majority of people buying them are douchebags, but the majority of douchebags that want to buy a bike will get a gixxer just by the name recognition alone.

Its easier to choose a widely known name brand than to do research. And on top of that, who's gonna let a new rider test ride different bikes to see which one performs the best in their own opinion?

There are plenty of non-douche riders that buy a gixxer because of its build and legitimate reputation.

Exactly. I have had "That Guy" tell me, Gixxer 750 is a sleeper so he is getting one next week, Gixxer is the fastest, , gixxer etc. It just seems almost every conversation with a guy thats about to get a bike its a gixxer, for that reason alone I will buy any other brand but gixxer. I believe all the bikes are too close to claim one is better, I just don't want a bike all the noobs desire.

Why is the sky blue? Who knows, it just is. Gixxers are like the 883 Harleys. The 883 is a nice bike I guess and its not like the 1200s are fast to begin with, but if you ride one you are a .

Funny you say this, the last Katy / Cypress Meet we had I was one of the last riders on our ride and a rider went down or was stopped by LE (not sure which), and a few guys thought it was me.

Hey, I didn't even know till now you were on a gixxer...I asked because you were one of the riders that I didn't see back at pp1... And we actually all thought the bike that got tagged was a Honda, I don't think anyone at all thought it was a gixxer....but that is a funny coincidence

You coming tonight or tomorrow night??
