Do I need help?

I'm really gaining interest in the K5-K6 Gixx... I guess you fuggers would burn me at the stake if I go that route, huh? If I could score a ride on one and it rode good/was as comfortable as the 10 I think I'd probably get one.

It's your wallet El D. I really like my 2004 ZX10 and I respect the people of this forum quite a bit, but if my bike is lost I'm going straight to the Yamaha dealer to put a deposit down on a 2006 R1.

Dress for the slide & not the ride

I'd get what makes you feel good.. I could give a damn about what others think...
be a leader not a follower.. works for me.

I don't think you can go wrong with ANY liter bike but the suzukii and the kawi stand out as winners to me..

We kept our mouths shut when you sold the 10 and bought a 636 but to leave Kawi entirely and buy a Gix...No, No that just won't work.

NOOOOOO YOU NEED REHAB!!!! QUICKLY!!!!



naw...I'm J/P....I don't mind the GSXR except for the nose that sticks out really far...and the f-ugly exhaust (that will be changed by 90% of owners)......it's a fast bike...try to find a test ride from an owner or a used one at a dealer for a test.... Then make your decision

Hell I say get what ever you like and want, like a few other people said, it is your money, your the one making the payments. If you are in a position to go thru multiple bikes in a short time, I say go for it, you are the lucky few who can experience different bikes. That is something that most of us can't afford to do.


Anyway, good luck with what ever you decide El D

minus the wink...seriously.

You went out and bought the 636...weren't happy. Same thing will happen if you get the GIX. DONT DO IT!

The 10 is KING. If you buy a GIXXXIE...I will revoke your moddin priveliges!

I'd consider the 06 ZX10r.
This is my first Kawi, I love it, if something happened to it I'd consider the 06ZX cause it should be a refined refined version of this bike.
Not as good looking maybe, but I'm betting it will be sweet.

But it's your money- remember, even a decal for a suzy can be way overpriced, usually, suzy charges the most for parts of the big 4.
