Nice looking bike Biglovemp! I test drove (or is it test *rode*) an 03 GSXR 750, and it was pretty sweet! He had an aftermarket exhaust, power commander, and some high flow filter. Very nice bike, but I ended up going with a CBR F4i...

Its funny cause when i got mine i couldnt decide between the two either. But i am VERY happy i went with this one. I love the color even more now. The blue and white is the traditional gixxer colors but not many have this white one. Either way you are good.

Were they both 08's? Any mods done? Significant price difference?

The white/ grey was an 08, the blue/ white was an 07. They were both stock and the 08 had been down so I stayed away from that one. I never got to see the 07 as it sold before I could get there. It only had 2300 km on it.

One mod I definitely want is a pipe (full system).

You def. want to try to stay away from a bike that has been down.

So you didnt end up with either one? Well keep looking and dont give up

I actually just bought a Yoshimura slip on for my bike and i am not to crazy about the sound. I got it cause i got an insane deal on it. I am searching for headers now on ebay. So next on the list is the headers so i could get rid of the CAT and a power commander which is a MUST to control the air/fuel ratio. That'll be another 1k easy so hoping to find a good deal on ebay.

Let me know how your search turns out...

Motorcycles don't have the same protective shell a P-car has.

It I'm cut-off in a car I stand a better chance than if I'm cut-off in a bike wouldn't you agree?

Agreed.
Who ever argues that a motorcycle is not dangerous is out of their mind.

I still enjoy and love riding.
And I will continue to.

Thank you.

As far as calling my SO "out of her mind" you're on your own bud.

Didn't James Dean die in a Porsche? It is possible to die in a car too.

I've never claimed that bikes can't be dangerous.

Know your limit....ride within it.

You could die in anyway...

Riding a bike IS dangerous but like i said, so are many other things and we still tend to do them.

Yes, you could die a million different ways.... but lets be honest here, if someone is a motorcycle rider, that suddenly becomes the #1 cause of death for them.

Word.

I'm going to be riding about 1000 miles this weekend, up and over a few Sierra mountain road passes (from 0 ft elevation up to about 9000ft). I could NOT live where it was flat. No. Can. Do.
