.My New Bike - GSXR 750 K7
Now i was told to go away and ride for a season or so and the come back and tell you all what it was like riding a restricted 7fiddy. Well, its awesome. Not as fast obviously because of the restriction, but it keeps up with the full power 600s on a straight and anything in the corners. I didnt think it would be that fast for a restricted bike but it doesnt do bad. I was told the brakes would be razor sharp... bollocks. I found they were abit soft initially but cope well under heavy use.
Saying this i had an introduction with the tarmac/snow the first bloody week! While leaving work after the most snow we have had in england in march forever, i lost the back end while accelerating!! Seeing and hearing her grinding down the road then cutting out was a killer. I picked her up, inspected the damage and carried on, (Even more cautious!!!). I shouldnt have been riding in the snow but how else would i learn my lesson
The damage was minimal as i had all the R&G Crash bobbins everywhere possible thankfully! Anyway, from that point ive been fine, learning the roads and getting used to ridding a bigger bike.
Ive had a few moments where ive left a few marks (in my pants) because of some tunnel vision drivers! but i was expecting this.
Almost a year has past now, riding in all weather and ive clocked up 8000miles! My right hand is itching for full throttle though...
Anyway just thought i would reply after the last topic being quite a heated one!!
