Very nice bike. *th-up*

Arguably best mass-produced sports bike made.

Just drive smart and safe.

Always wanted to take one out for a spin.
After riding a Harley, like to take a real sportsbike like yours for a spin to see if it's something I'd like to buy......... ;)

Which bike is faster and a better performer, the R1 or the GSX R 1000?

empowerd took me for a ride one day on his GSX-R and it is stupid fast!...stupid fast! <---incase you didn't hear me the first time! LOL!

He said we hit 250kph at one point, but that wasn't the highlight! We hit a red light and right beside us was a brand new Ferrari 360 Modena! D'oh! At the time I was tired and sore. He gave me the hold the fu@k on signal. Double D'oh! Light goes green, bike and car slowly go...1st gear...2nd gear the Ferrari punches it and then empowerd cracked the throttle and we are doing a 45 to 50 degree wheelie! Once we FINALLY came down I looked back and the Ferrari was so far back! LOL! What a rush!

I've driven the gixxer 1000!!! wha!! very, very fast!!! You can't even see straight under it's heavy excel! Your retna must have a limiter sensitive to "G" forces or something, ha ha. I've never driven an R1 though I hear, there just as stupid fast. Personally I'd rather (and I'm sure you'll agree) have a Ducatti 998. I was going to get one this up coming summer but.....I'm still not sure.



Check it out, No wounder it wouldn't start, the key was in the wrong whole!!! but I bet Randy gets that alot!!! ha ha Just kidding, just kidding!!! :D :D :D

thats nice bike. My girlfriend brother has a VFR 600 and her brother in law had the BMW KR1200 (the one with the racing stripes on the side) sport bike or whatever it's called. That thing doesn't even drive on chains but has a drive shaft. He said he was killing Gixxer 750s

HA HA HA
Maybe weve raced the same ferarri. I told slowered about racing a ferarri he didn't want to believe that I smoked him. Now I finally have some proof. Our bikes ROCK. Im told the R1 is almost as fast as the Gixxer 1000 but a little less stable experienced riders only a friend of mine had a R6 last year and for no reason when he was slowing down the back end of the bike would dance. Oh yea ha ha ha the little italian guy in the ferrari caught up to me at the next lights I looked at him HE WAS PISSED LOL I love it $15,000 dollar bike $123,000 dollar car ha ha ha. I need some more ferrari's to play with.*uzi*

SORRY dude but theres NO WAY those bikes have a lot of displavement but they are only V-twins maybe in the long run he might catch up but off the line I dont think so. I'll try to find one next summer i'll let you know. Then again it depends on the riders ability. Thats like the Ducati's you wont find a better handling bike but the power leaves a bit to be desired. If you have ridden a inline and a v-twin you know what I mean. I like the sound of the inlines better. I will give the v-twins something though TORQUE. that is impressive. Wait a bit till ducati finishes there superbike. it apparenty going to be a v twin still but pushing 200+ hp at the rear wheel thats rediculous with a rev limit of something like 13-14,000 rpm its unheard of in a v-twin. I caint wait to see it. I wish my car reved as high as my bike.LOL

I used to have a twin before my Gixxer.... it was a 2000 TL1000-R. I did a bunch of things to it and finally got 124rwHP out of it. that's quite a bit for a twin... my friend's Ducati 996 with the same upgrades (airbox, pipes, chip etc.) managed 113rwHP (when it wasn't broken) and WEIGHED more than my TL!!!

The twins are like an American muscle car (Vette or Viper) lots of torque, a feeling of invincibility and heavy. Until Suzuki came out with the GSX-R1000, I was happy with my twin. Now my big Gixx makes more torque than the twin did with 24hp increase and most importantly 50+lbs lighter!.....

.....LIGHT YEARS ahead of the overpriced, uncomfortable, unreliable crap that Ducati spits out of Italy*no-no*. I've riden numerous Duc's and they really are NOTHING special... in fact, I can't stand them.....biggest waste of money, you might as well buy a 1982 Rolls Royce to get the same effect of unreliable, hand built, over rated, over priced, diet-hungry, slo-performing "technology".*thmbsdwn*

Nice TL
I think im going to make my bike into a solo rider high exit exhaust and take off the rear passenger pegs...not too sure yet

maverick
11-14-2002, 09:26 AM
then again I might still sell it
If I get any offers
(good offers)

yeah I don't know too much about bikes so I was just basing my comment my gf's brother in laws comment. I was gonna go for an R6 but the gf and my family didn't like the idea of me riding a bike and knowing the way I drive.

maverick
11-14-2002, 10:31 AM
Yea I went through that too. All you have to remember is that the bike is as much power as you want it to be. #2 NO ONE IN THERE CAR OR VAN EVER SEE'S YOU ON A BIKE. #3 Always respect what the bike is capable of. Ride safe.

i just saw something nice on TV, the air vest, do you guys know what that is? it is a vest that you attach to your bike with a wire[like skidoos] then if you fall the wire pulls open a small gas cylender thingy then your vest becomes like an air bag, which i think should help saving your life, looks like it should work!:huh?: anyways:D ....ride safe, i took mine out yesterday, it was cold but it was fun*th-up* :D *devil*

I saw that guy testing those "air vests" he's doing 20 km/h when he hits the car and flies off. OH MAN I wonder how good it works at 120km/h I'd like to see that.*mw* (thats what he'll look like after)
