okay, ill try "nice."

What we're trying to say, dude, is that if you grew up loving Suzukis and drooling over the GSXR and GSXR750, then get one. You wont be disappointed. Sure there are tons of squids on them, but who gives a ?
Do you want to buy a R6 or Ninja and wish you had gotten the GSXR?
Buy the bike YOU want, not the bike that fits the desired "image."

You have literally been useless in regards to the 750 vs 600 or literbike question.

Yeah they do - everyone thinks they're slow, poorly made bikes that cant handle for and are only ridden by cops, doctors and lawyers....

Well - 1 outa 3 is kinda true...

Really?

Guess you missed this whole post (4th one on the thread i might add)

In other words - a good all around street bike.
That's useless?

Ok - maybe for YOU.

As far as "riding off in a straight line"...you may want to ask around....a few people here have been quite surprised to see just how well that big ole 2-wheeled couch can corner...
