Good purchase. It is a Suzuki, but still a good purchase. A friend of mine has one, and it is a really sharp bike. You have to keep her spinning a bit more than I have to on my 929 but, I am sure, not as much as you had to on your CBR600F4. I couldn't believe how good the Gixeer looked the first time I saw it. I had seen the Gixxer in mags, but pictures just don't do it justice. My buddy got the yellow one and, in my opinion, it is the sexiest bike on the road today. Beautiful lines (I am not too keen on the tank, but that is my only criticism), and a fantastic seat that sets new standards for hyperbikes. I know you are going to love it!
