I'm thinking of getting a newer bike, I currently own a '97 TL1000S.

Is there any known issues with the 2003 GSXR or R1?

I will test ride both before I buy one but I just want to get your thoughts.

thanx :thumb:

03 R1, GSXR

No issues that I've ever heard about for either of those bikes for that year. The big GSXR was mildly refreshed for 2003, new bodywork, more power, a few tweaks here and there. The magazines rated it as the top-dog literbike for that year. (Although there's not a real noticeable difference in performance to the average street-rider)

Can't go wrong with either one of them.

Thanks

I do lean over more to the gixxer but I will test both and besides the R1 is a little cheaper.

My fiance said I must buy a Busa, but I dont know, I'm not the biggest Busa supporter.

Now I must start shopping for a bike.

Dam! I wish my wife would be like that. I would stick with the 1000. Everybody has a busa, and they are not the prettiest thing to look at.
