mindblowingly awesome! after 3 and a bit years paying my dues on a suzuki gsxf750 (which i'm sad to see go- looks aside, it was an alright bike!) i wanted my second bike to be special and, just today, i picked up one of the last k6 phantoms in the uk. blimey! the grin is gonna have to be surgically removed from my face! speed, acceleration- in any gear, brakes, ride, handling, sound, everyone should have a go on one of these. have i mentioned the noise from the yoshi pipe? it is sooo rude! forget the swollen baseball-bats for pipes k7 1000, go out now- right now- and snap up any remaining k6 versions. you will have the best bike on the road today.
