Just a few interesting pics of my recent bikes that led me to the GSXR.


Old Suzuki GSX1100F. Thats not me sat on it, thats the wife:D


ZX7R I rebuilt this as it was a shed when i got it. Not as nice to ride as the GSXR though.

A few more

I only have a video of this bike. The clown on it is not me but the previous owner who i bought it off. If i knew he was doing this i would have left it.


Those in the know will see that this was a GPZ900. I built this from bits. I put ZRX1100 forks and wheel on the front with ZRX clocks and at the rear
I fitted a ZZR1100 swingarm and wheel. Sadly it bent a con rod so is now in bits in the garage.

I had a ZX6R, how did you find the riding position of it? I think with the Ninja's you were lower down into the bike, the GSXR when I first sat on it felt like I was perched on top of it if you know what I mean?

Yes i know what you mean. I have had this conversation before with various people. The Kawasaki seems to have a more aggressive riding position than the Suzuki.
Also from a personal point of view i am a bit on the big side, sort of 19 stone big which some people think is at odds with riding a middle weight sports bike but the "space hopper"
i have under my jumper played havoc with the Kawasaki tank but not so much on the suzuki.
