Question 2003 liter bikes

I'm thinking of getting a newer bike, I currently own a '97 TL1000S.

Is there any known issues with the 2003 GSXR or R1?

I will test ride both before I buy one but I just want to get your thoughts.

thanx

03 R1, GSXR

No issues that I've ever heard about for either of those bikes for that year. The big GSXR was mildly refreshed for 2003, new bodywork, more power, a few tweaks here and there. The magazines rated it as the top-dog literbike for that year. (Although there's not a real noticeable difference in performance to the average street-rider)

Can't go wrong with either one of them.

Thanks

I do lean over more to the gixxer but I will test both and besides the R1 is a little cheaper.

My fiance said I must buy a Busa, but I dont know, I'm not the biggest Busa supporter.

Now I must start shopping for a bike.

Dam! I wish my wife would be like that. I would stick with the 1000. Everybody has a busa, and they are not the prettiest thing to look at.
