Professor I have to agree, I had a hard-on when the GXSR 1000 first came out and the claims they were making comparing it to the GSXR 600 in power to weight ratio in early 2000. I unfortunately couldn't pony up the 12 grand for it so I settled for a 1999 Kawasaki ZX750, Man was I ever thrilled, It's light, extremely quick, and overall good value. I only gave 4,500.00 for it and it had 1,500 miles on it. I slapped a pipe on it and jetted the carbs, it was a monster.
Golf is for people who don't have the balls to drag a knee..
Going fast on four wheels is fun, going fast on two wheels is funner
