2001 GSX-R 1000 - Reviews?

Hi there, new to the forum.

I've been riding about 5 years now, and am looking at a 2001 GSX-R 1000. Previous bikes have been 2000 Honda VFR 800 and a 1998 Yamaha YZF 600R. The Honda was excellent for sport touring, with a little more emphasis on the touring than the sport (in my opinion), and with my tendancy for making short (weekend) trips leaning more towards sport (mostly on twisty back roads/old highways) I'm looking for something with some more sport but with a little more grunt for the motorways. Any experience/reviews you could send my way would be helpful!

Ian

Yeah its that colour, it looks really sharp compared to the 929's I've looked at.
