They are all awesome bikes. But I'm partial to the early GSXR's over the others. The one that started it all.

Would abs stop you from spinning up the rear?

I doubt it's locked... that would be bad in a race condition.

He's likely allowing the rear wheel to spin at about half the rate of the front... makes for a nice controllable drift.

Which also can NOT be done with ABS.

On most bikes all you need to do is put the bike on it's stand and manually rotate either of the wheels until the ABS light comes on.

Yup, still a great bike. I'm a little biased because I have the R, but I still don't love the gold frame.

I am and have been very happy with my bikes; but this thing is like a stone in my shoe. I know it can't be $9-10,000 more fun than my 950SM especially on the roads I most often ride (tight, twisty, and not very smooth) but still ...






It gets panned for not being terribly attractive, but I very much like the way it looks.

Cortez- I was late in responding about your post up of the scooter. I figured you were ... under the weather.

Now, the Tuono--gives me sweaty gums.
