I am new here and I would like to have your advice.
I owned a couple gixxers over the years, the last one being a 2001 GSX-R1000. I really loved that motorcycle because despite huge power, I thought it was still a pretty friendly ride, forgiving and so stable (like on rails) even on bumpy pavement, in corners, on hard acceleration etc etc.
I am now without a ride and I am considering the K5/K6 1000. But from what I read in magazines and online, it is more like a kamikaze, unforgiving ride. It seems to be easy to lose the rear end in corners, to lift it straight up on acceleration, etc, etc. I am not the wheelie type (not yet ). I love fast, twistie roads. What would you suggest?
Thanks in advance!
