Cool Suzuki is running the Sportbike world!!!

Congratulations on your selection with the GSX-R1000. Is it a handful like the magazines are saying? Check-out motocycle.com shoot-out with the Gixxer 1000. By the way I'm new at this super-bike world, but I disobeyed just about everyones opinion of; Since this will be your first bike, start off on something small and then get a bigger bike... Kiss My A...was my response, so I went with the one bad mother... the 01 GSX-R750. Best decision over any other bike. What's the cost of the Gixxers in your area. One place has the 1000's @$9999.00 & 750's @$8600.00. Have fun riding, because this stuff is addictive!!!!

Life is short!

Wink History of the GSX-R750

CraZee GSX-R750; don't get me wrong there are many other bikes out there, but after reading countless articles from comparing all the top contenders of sportbikes I had to have a 01 GSX-R750. This bike will hold its own against any other sportbike, just research a little & the numbers don't lie. I hope that Suzuki falls into this big-bore craze & stop making the 750, so the resale value will skyrocket....

01 GSX-R750 Blue/White Anything esle would be uncivilized!!!!
01 Yamaha Raptor Blk/White
00 Nissan Blk Maxima SE
00 GMC 4drExtcab SLT

Life is short!

Mad Cow, congratulations on your choice of a new ride. I bought mine earlier in the year and have really enjoyed it, absolutely no problems except for excessive rear tire wear.

Got used to the power already and put a 1 tooth smaller front sprocket on it last weekend. Retains the stock chain, and costs a whopping $14 from Sprocket Specialties. It made a huge difference in acceleration. Stock, the 1Ks are geared pretty tall, 17/42. Wheelies are now accidental in 1st gear and 2nd can be a slow roll-on and the front comes right up in proportion to the throttle at any speed. FUN, FUN!

Are you sure it's not a Gixxer 750 with different plastic?

BTW, be careful of that tunnel vision. Cagers can't conceive of approach speeds over 70, let alone 170.

Sorry, but I have to add one more, opinon re: a gixxer 750 for a first bike, much less a liter. I'd say No way, but I get the feeling any advice is usless. Do me and yourself a favor, and keep the throttle at a minium, for a long time, and ride SMART......

Hammer1; I've had my 01 GSX-R750 for a couple of months. The bike still looks great without any roadrash!!! I just didn't go beyond my limits & I'm very confident about telling someone who wants to race...No!!!! In my opinioin that's where mistakes start to happen when bike riders are trying to master a sportbike. Impossible....Why, you ask? Because, whenever you think that you know everything about a Rocket, that's when your reminded that your the student & the bikes are teachers of pain!!!!!

01GSX-R750 Blue/White
Anything else would be uncivilized.

While I commend you for having a great attitude, regarding staying within your limits, all too often it's the varibles that come into play, i.e. cages that cut ya off, pull out in front of ya, ect. and riding over your head. And being that ya have the bike already, all I can say...is ride with your brain, not your d%$#, and the best of luck to ya...
