Are the 01 style gixxers still competitive compared to the new generation, or is it like comparing an srad to an 01?I have a chance to get a straight-framed 01/750 for $6,000, but don't wanna get it if the new bikes are way ahead in handling/hp.please none of this "it's the rider, not the bike" bs.I KNOW it takes BOTH! so please save me the speech...Are the 01's and even 04's comparable, or is the '04 way better?Thanks!
Also, it IS the rider.PS - I hope that I am right. I am still on an '01 GSX-R. ;D
The press jazzes everything up...Hey, they have to see us magazines, but, importantly, they have to sell advertising space to manufacturers.Daytona tire test...Privateer rider, supposedly retired, Michael Barnes does the fastest lap on a used former Yamaha factory R6 from 2003. Beats the new 2005's that make more HP, better chassis. How about the new Honda's (SS and FX), Suzuki's, and Kaw's? All behind the rider on the old bike with no testing schedule and a retired rider.
Which is why Bill rides an old bike... Why spend the money when the rider sucks! ;D ;D ;D (doh! hey, you know when you throw them up I have to knock them down.)
