This is the first time i have ever been compelled to write anything good about, well anything! I passed my cbt in May 08 and passed my DAS in July 08. and what did I do. Yep, went straight out and bought a brand new, off the shelf, spank GSX-R 750 K8.
Without a doubt, the best thing I ever did. I must say, I was 35, looking at 36 and felt it was now or never after denying my feelings for fast bikes and freedom. I had little respect for speed in my younger days (ha ha) and always felt that I would do something really silly if I had a sports bike. A lot more respect for speed now, I can tell you. The bike is faultless, amazing, responsive, fast, stable, sure, reliable and all the other mind blowing things you could say about a bike. The 750 commands respect, but treat it good as I have and run it in properally and once you hit 1000 miles, open her up and blast into the sunset. That sound over 10500rpm is something else. Why on earth would anybody buy anything else?. All I hoped for and much much more. It was suggested that I get an SV – ER6 – Frazer etc for my first big bike.
Glad now? What do you think! Kieran
P.S all I need to do now is learn how to really Motor-Bike-It
