Buddy of mine let me ride his GSXR1000 today from Harrison to Vanvcouver. All I can say is holy sh$t!! That bike rocks, felt so solid in the corners and the power was incredible. I thought i'd be uncomfortable with riding it, being that I ride an R6 and have only briefly ridin a Hyabusa. This was the first time I've gotten to ride a big liter bike and really opened it up. I wasn't going nutz but took those 40's coming back from Harrison up the hill pretty quick, just amazing handling. I'd like a shot at the R1 next, see what the differences are. I've been told the R1 is a little lighter in the steering, anyone ridding both bikes and has a preference??
PS - E where the heck are ya?? Never see you on here anymore!!
