Just sold the 750 (for a reasonable amount) which by the way has never been dropped. That was the previous one (K1) which I crashed at PG on T1, and at Sepang at T9 and T12 plus the kamikaze Pizza Hut scooter. Hard apprenticeship but it neither made me faster nor spoilt my fun.
By the way, thanks for calling me simply stupid, the web was made for people like you, sorry to trespass.
For everybody else, go get a 1000K5 and find out for yourselves why the magazines like it more than they usually drool over the latest kit.
Just back from a second spin to run it in round the twisties in Malaysia. It's much more stable in rough corners than any of the previous Gixxers, in fact nothing seems to unsettle it, gives you a lot of confidence.
Only flaw I can find is that the petrol tank bulges so much it gets in the way of your inside arm when doing u-turns, and it can throw you off balance.

I don't think the designers were too pre-occupied with its car park manners when they pencilled this one. But your quote is a classic Trevor... I'm going to send it in too Fast Bikes and see if we can have it printed !!
