Well, here she is, this thing has changed my whole perception of time and space, absolutely unreal torque, can cruise around in first all day long, it's good to 160kph, front wheel wants to go skyward in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, fucking stupid.
I'll never go back to 600 after this.

I sold my Kawi today and went to look at new bikes... One store has gixxer 1000 for $9800 OTD .. Got to pay tax on that though.. I would like to test ride one before I had to throw down $10k.

Buddy, all I can say is FUCK!!!!, you will not be dissapointed, this thing is the same weight as my 636, turns better, the suspension is better, the brakes are better, and the motor is unreal, 60 more horsepower, totally linear delivery, and more than twice the torque, with a curve as flat as the desert, from 3000rpm up, I just can't put into words how fucking fast this thing is.
60 mph is a eye blink away.
I'm trying to get used to being thrown back in the seat and my arms outsrtretching every time I twist the throttle, an I'm not even past 7500rpm yet, still breaking her in. If the devil made a bike, this is it.
The funny thing is, after all that said, I still miss my 04 646, it did have character, and a big soul.
I feel like I'm trying to tame the meanest bull walking the earth right now, but having fun doing it!

i like. you did right on the color too. careful though. they can get away from you. a guy i know(dont ride with) looped his in 2nd at about 80mph the other day. no gear. luckily he bounced off the road before he slid, so other than some cracked ribs, broken toes and a cracked cheek bone, and about 3 grand worth of damage to the 06 gixxer 1k...i guess he got off easy.

They really are simply amazing bikes. As you said, you just can't describe how fast the new 1000s are. It's something you have to experience.

A friend of mine has an '06 GSXR1000 in the same colours, and he has a conventional looking exhaust on his now. I think it's a Yoshimura exhaust (can't really remember), but it looks like a traditional side-mounted exhaust - really cool and different on those bikes, and it makes the back end look a bit "lighter".

Have fun with it.

Very nice bike. We need a little more detail, though. Please zoom in and/or take more photos of the porch area (reference the fourth photo). [:p]

Now here is a man who knows what the important things in life are :D

aside from that [:p]

super looking bike and good luck with it. I find it interesting that I have had friends who rode and swore by 600's until they stepped up to the liter bikes.....they find a whole new world of motorcycling and they too say they will never go back to a 600.

OTD usually means everything including tax :)
