    So excited..... Impulse Saturday purchase

    Hey all,

    Just thought I would share my random purchase today, I sold my old R6 about 8 months ago and been itching to get another and popped to my local bike shop and fell in love with the below so struck a deal. Bad thing is they are really busy with new 62 plates I have to wait over 10 days for it. It's like waiting for my car all over again...... That was worth the wait so I hope this is.


    It's a GSXR 750 K8




    Knowing my luck it will piss down until Xmas.... Lol

    Cheers,
    Si

    Cheers mate!

    It's the biggest cc I have had and I wanted to go for the 1000 but everyone has told me to get the 750 as its the best in between and more usable.

    The colour was what got me I think, looks cracking in the flesh! Hope it doesn't feel like waiting as long as I did for the car.

    Nice choice. I'm currently riding an 02 R1 but considering downsizing to a daytona 675. As said, in the real world you won't find much difference between the 750 and 1000, both extremely capable.

    Thanks mate!

    After the R6 I always thought I would stick with a Yam but had a couple of older S-rads and love them and seen this and thought from what I have read its a good choice!

    Thanks mate,

    Thanks for all the nice safe messages!

    Very nice bike mate. Prefer a Honda though. Dad has an old CBR6 for back and for to work 20 year old bike and a solid engine. But love the colours on this :D Never been a fan of Suzuki's but this GSXR has really changed my opinion on them. Have fun mate, ride safe.

    Well I picked her up yesterday and oh my god what a machine! You guys were spot on, it's a pleasure to ride. I think I am in love!

    Really pleased with my choice, it's a tidy bike but I am looking forward to getting a good detail on it ready for winter.

    Thanks very much for all the comments!

    Stay safe people!

    Cheers,
    Si

    A few more pics guys. Gave her a brief detail today to put my stamp on her. Also removed the rear pegs and ordered a new tail tidy to spruce up the back end up.







    Comments good and bad welcome.

    Looks sweet Si, nice set of bar ends and faring crash stops now and will look the bee's.

    Amazing how clean cut they look with the rear bubble and foot pegs removed, have you been looking at cans yet, or is it loud enough?

    Yeah looking at some ends and crash bungs. I have a scorpion can on her but someone removed the sticker for some reason. Just waiting for the tail tidy and the new black screen and that will have to do for now.....

    Will see how it goes with the screen, it was only £18 so will change back if not happy with her.

    Love the sound, find myself revving it more and more to hear it! Lol

    That's the only problem when ya put new cans on, i put a whole race system on me Enduro bike (KTM200exc) and it used to ping so loud i couldn't help giving it hand full over jumps just so everyone could hear it hahaha.

    That screen is a bargin, well worth having just for them really sunny days, when we get em, lol
