GSXR1000 which is the best; why?

Looking for feed back on GSXR1K's! Which year is the best and why? I know that most of you will say new the better with the technical advances, etc.... but as for best years for used bikes I just want to hear your input... I am looking at getting one and would love an 05 or wait for the 06; but $$$$ talks.... so lets keep the poll from years 01-04

thanks people!

Well, i pick the 03' with the choices available, sure the 05' is better, but out of the ones you posted, the 03'. the 03, and 04 were better than the previous, and they are pretty much the same bike, except in 04' they went to smaller brake calipers on the front, sure it saved weight, but really hampered the stopping power. i have the 03' and a buddy has the 04' and you can tell a diff.

Oh, and the other reason 03' is better. BECAUSE I HAVE ONE!

I may not know everything about somethings, but i know something about everything!

After owning a 01, 03, and a 05. I would say Best bang for the buck would be the 01. Its stupid fast and not to pricey.

Best bike over all is defiantly the 05.

I just love to ride. I doesn't matter what kind of bike it is.
