I am not new to the site, but have beem missing for a while. I had an 05 Zx10-R but replaced it with an 06 GSXR 750 and been on that for the last 3 years. I must admit when I first got it, I was a bit surprised how underpowered it felt compared to my 05 10. Well, I just got a great deal on my dealers last 08 leftover 10. Its my favorite color too..green! I must say its very much an animal in the upper range but that flat spot down low..I think gearing is in my immediate future. I must say I see a bit of GSXR haters on here, but not me. I am biased to Suzuki AND Kawasaki. Oh..and I think the 08-up CBR 1000RR is the most hideous, ugly looking bike EVER. I dont care if it flies and cooks you breakfast in the morning! Well its good to be back. I will probably be running my bike bone stock at the strip soon so I'll keep you all posted!
