which bike


I returned to biking 6years ago, passed my test and rode a Suzuki Bandit 600 for 2 years, now a Kawasaki zzr600 for 3years, about 25k miles total, all in sunny Portugal.

The weather and roads here accommodate 'progressive' riding and I would like to upgrade but in Portugal finding any particular bike is difficult and will involve long travel possibly.

There is a Suzuki gsxr1000 k3[2003] which i'm very attracted to. mainly because the MCN review, while stressing the performance describes the bike as a sports/tourer and speaks of the comfortable riding position.

How much different will I find this than the zzr? It' a long journey just to seat on and see?

cheers derek

A GSXR1000 is NOT a sports tourer. It is a sports bike.
It is not similar to the ZZR6 in any way.
