Looking for Informed comparisons

A friend of mine is looking to get a new bike (he's tired of getting his VFR riding ass handed to him by me) and has narrowed it down to 2- the 06 Triumph 675 and the 06 GSXR750. Apparently he's terrified of the ZX10R and has delusions of passing me on the curves. Has anyone ridden both of these bikes and if so what's your opinion?

But I have done a thousand dreadful things,
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed,
But that I cannot do ten thousand more.

Depending on where you live,service might be a problem with the Triumph.But if he is looking for an all around good bike,the 06 gsx-r 750.If he is a good rider,those dreams of passing you in the twisties could happen on this bike.

Sorry it's not a personal ride informed type of comment but, I don't think he could go wrong with either.
What vfr are you whooping? 750? 800 or an older one?

Cool as the Triumph is I'd lean towards the newest suzy750 as it does seem to be the perfect blend if you don't want a 1000.

I'm surprised Literjunkie hasn't commented on his 750.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

He's got an 03 VFR800. Comfy bike but it feels top heavy to me. and it's not fast enough.
