Well your first problem is it's a GSXR... Are you considering it as your first bike? Cause if you are... then no it isn't a good bike.

I had a '04 GSXR750. It was almost as fast as a 1,000 and handled almost as well as a 600. If I ever buy another sportbike it would be a 750.

IMHO it's the perfect compromise for a supersport bike.

Don't let them mess with you about gixxers either. There is a reason they are so popular that people make fun of them.
They are good solid, reliable, fast, nimble bikes. What more can you ask?

its a solid bike, take care of it and it'll take care of you. the bike can accomplish what you want to do with it. again the question is so vague no one can really answer it. yes its a good bike though. you can track it, you can stretch it lower it(thats what you told me you wanted to do), you can cruise around on it, you can hit up twisties. over all you have a lot of options with this bike.

They're pretty reliable bikes. My k2 750 is supposedly still being ridden, and it has north of 50k miles on it. The only "problem" is that they don't like to start when cold. You'll get it to kick over, and it'll die. My friends and I took to calling that generation the "3 start suzuki."

Those things are mutually exclusive.
