I like the signals in the mirrors, but then I don't ride trackdays where the mirrors are removed. I agree with fuster on the exhaust, it looks like hammered dogshit if you ask me. I generally keep my bikes stock (or nearly so), but if I had one of these that exhaust would have to go. The rest of it looks pretty cookie-cutter to everything else the big four put out nowdays.

Right on.

I saw a picture of Yamaha's 50th anniversary R1. That bike is a little bit out of the cookie mold but it is a limited production (500) and probably real expensive.

Are you sure that is a 600?

It look pretty much the same as the 1000

Sorry my bad I read the subject again and saw it is the 1000

HI Olson,

I've had a 2006 Gixxer 1000 for about one week now. It's a silver/black version. I don't have many good photos yet but here's couple I took in my garage right after I got it:

http://home.gci.net/~dougbrown/

I'm still breaking it in (have to keep it under 6500 rpm) but it still keeps up with traffic just fine

I appreciate that the can is strange but it sounds GREAT! I was so impressed and, personally, I'll never replace it. Actually, over time, the can grows on you... really.... you can trust me! It fairly quiet around 5K tooling around town and then it's quite loud over 5K... but not just "loud," it sounds "good."

I have the smallest, strangest complaint about the 2006, maybe earlier ones, too, I dunno. The kick stand is pretty minimal and it doesn't set forward enough so if you move the bike foward at all, it easy for the kick stand to pop back up into place. A friend sitting on the bike almost dropped it and I could see why as it happened right in front of me. Again, small complaint.

I have a 05 Ducati Monster, which is not a slow motorcycle, but the Gixxer is the most exhilerating one I've ever owned, and I've had a lot of fast motorcycles over the years. IMHO, it's every bit as good as the reviews say and the hype surrounding this motorcycle... even at a limit of 6500K, it's blindingly fast. Spectacular brakes and of course it handles as well (maybe better?) than my Ducati.
