Hey guys, well I gotta tell ya, I did it, I bought a 2002 red and black gixxxer 1000. I love yamis, and i loved my r1. I had a full akrapovic on it and ivan jet kit. beleive me it was fast and powerfull! But i love my new bike. I am still breaking it in and its cold here. but wow! Sorry I traded sides guys! Too many bikes and too little time to be loyal :( But anyway, your still my guys. I am just faster now then the rest of you. JK! I just ordered a full system akrapovic and pclllr for my bike!!! i am excited.. SO ANYWAY

there are a lot of differences I noticed. I liked the r1s suspension better. But for me beinga shorter buy, I actually like the seating position on the gixxer better. Weird huh, you would think the opposite. But i don't like how i seem to sit farther back on the bike. It makes it harder to pull up wheelies. I am lucky the bike is soo powerful. Second gear comes up like first gear did with my old r1 stock (w/o akra). The gixxer feels more stable for some reason the my yami. I don't know why. I was goign 100 and it felt like 40mph... But anyway i got on my friends 2001 r1 and popped up second and rode it for a while. It felt nice to do taht again. I miss the blue, BUT LOVE THE RED BETTER! Anyway, see ya around guys!
ONE MORE THING> THE STOCK PIPE SOUNDS AWESOME. IT sounds like an akrapovic does i think. I was really impressed!

Oh well Ironman, you can always come when your bike is in the shop which is where most of the Gixxers spend their time, sorry to be the one to say it but "I told you so!"

That's because mostly everybody who owns a Gixxer completely beats the hell out of them. You wouldn't know that Wild because your Triumph couldn't handle a third of what gixxers go through/images/icons/laugh.gif.

Let other people be right sometimes...it soothes them for being nothing else!

So to sum it up, Squids need to beat the hell out of their Gixxers to keep up with Triumphs! Hehheeehehe!
Here is a pic of the front for them since they have only seen them from the rear!
