Maybe, just maybe, the oh8 cbr is not the most appealing bike in the world. But who really cares what the view is from the rear, right???

If you're dead set on choosing from the two, here's the reality. Suzuki are notorious for having oiling problems (let's face it, you can't wring that much from a motor without expecting problems). The yami are possibly better motors, but they do so much fancy gadgetry to their bikes is bound to happen. If I had to choose of the two, I would go with the gixxer. Get some ohlins and upgrade the brakes, you'll have a stomper ready to go. Just save a little, or buy the extended warranty. You'll need it when the motor goes smokey south on ya.

Even if you only go do 1 TD the amount of knowledge you learn about you and your bike is priceless and will make you a much better street rider. People will spend $1200+ on exhaust, pwr commanders etc...or "upgrade" to newer/bigger bikes but will not go spend 2 bills on something actually worth a shiit.

As soon as my bike isnt my daily driver, Im getting that bish on a track!

Regardless of the benefits it will offer me, it should be a whole buttload of fun!

It will be Fun but some of the other benefits will be learning how to properly set up for a turn, throttle control, body positioning, use of your eyes, being smooth everywhere, slowing your street riding speeds down quite a bit(I hope), confidence, understanding of tire grip, etc.....

Gixxer all the way. Honda is good too but like you said you have to like the way it you feel on it. That is really important. The R1 but I don't think it is 3/4 of the bike the gixxer is. You can't go wrong with a gixxer dude. The bikes rock at the track and on the street and they wheelie really really well.

Yea, I broke a frame but that was a really violent crash ask nutmeg. I bet any bike would have cracked or bent a frame on that crash. But I conceede that is a weakness of the k5/k6 but I think they fixed that on the k7 did they not?

I was there(well at the TD event) I say the result and all I can say is ouch. I like the Gsxrs(i've owned one and will more than likely own another very soon) but the R1 is a flipping awesome bike as well. It boils down to preference.

+a whole chit load.
How many of us will be able to really tell the performance differences between these superbikes? some, but not many.
Get what you like and you'll definitely be happy and proud
