I'm living in the suburb of Paris...
I really appreciate to visit this forum and talk with you, this way it make me travel in the different states of the USA !
It's really funny to read that one of you is living in Texas, another one is living in ...
Because France is not so oversized!
For the bikes : I find the same feeling about perfs, engine, than Gsxr 1000, but the Gsxr has a little more torque (it's obvious especially in the second gear). The gsxr is like a bicycle, very very light !
But I prefer the extrem sport-position on the bike on the 10r, cause the gsxr is more like a tourist bike on this point. I also like the position on the R1.
About the braking, the gsxr is very weak, it's a bad feeling on track, you have no more brake after 10 min even with Avia hoses. It's a regular issue on the K5 model.
I never find a best braking system than the R1.
Anyway these are three great bikes on which you can really enjoy yourself.
