Well, i finally purchased a new bike. Starting out on a little CBR250RR which got written off, moved onto a Hyosung GT650R and now that i'm off restrictions, my new baby, a 2008 GSX-R1000. Moving from the Hyosung to the Suzuki has been like moving from a Hyundai to a BMW. Everything about it is just so much better. Brakes, power, quality, handling - all astonishingly good! Moving from a 650cc twin to an inline 4, i was expecting to have a little bit of a lag time down low until the engine wound up, but honestly there is nothing at all. The thousand is happy to putter around at 3000rpm and has torque everywhere! Absolutely wrapped, although i am now absolutely of the understanding that nobody in their right minds requires this much power on the street. It really is just silly. The day i picked it up, i rode it home down the freeway, doing 100km/h, shifted down to 3rd and gave it a bit of a twist, few seconds later i'm doing 180km/h and cursing under my breath as i hit the anchors. It really is just silly fast.
