Well guys the 636 is sold....As some may already know how much i miss my 1000. Went this morning and picked my new baby up. yeah yeah yeah its a gixxer, but regardless of what we think of gixxers and all the squids that ride them. the 1000 is a good bike at the end of the day. very flickable. very predictable, outstanding power, great brakes, beautiful bike all around. Hopefully kawi impresses me for the next 10r, till then gixxer it is. Am still a kawi lover. my ZX6r never failed me, never gave me any problems, and i really have nothing negetive to say. i aint going anywhere !!! i will stay true to kawiforums! Much love.
