Yeah yeah, I KNOW that is highly subjective, but I'm curious what others think? Consider this as option 10 of my worn out engine thread. Possibility of selling my GSXR, and getting something low mileage, built in the 21st century.
Here's the thing. I like the idea of a proper sport touring bike, but I can't give up a true sport bike. When I just want to go out for an afternoon jaunt, I don't want to be sitting upright. I LIKE the stiff suspension, aggressive riding position, and noise of a loud afternmarket pipe. What can I say? My plan was always to add a second bike, that was more comfortable for long trips, but keep the Gixxer as a toy.
Anyway, if I were to buy a true sport bike like my Gixxer, but still do 1500km+ trips on it, and 800km+ days, what would you guys buy? I'm not brand partial at all. For example, is a 2000-2002 GSXR comfy enough to ride all day long, but an 05 or newer is a torture rack? How about the 929rr????
