+1 DFEL750I, in the last 3 years I have ridden my gixxer maybe 6 times! I don't know if it is a combination of the desire just waning or that the guys I use to ride with all got old, had kids or doing something stupid (like ghost wheelies on the highway) and got hurt to the point where they stop riding. Hell the GSXR750 has 6800 miles on it and it is an 2001. Bought it new and I will list it as such if I decide to sell. But everytime I think of getting rid of her I get out on her one last time and just like an old girlfriend....I can't let go
