What a day, What a day! yesterday that is or was.Went to the pieshop to meet up with a couple of lads and could not believe the amount of machinery there.Of course my old gs11 was the oldest thing there.Should have seen all the posers on their latest and greatest, pitty most can`t extract anywhere near the performance potential of their bikes.Did a couple of runs up and down and found it amazing to find this one bloke on a 2004 gsxr1000 who was holding me up!!!!!! I think he should have bought a vespa.After a few runs noticed the back tyre was showing me her undies,oops 130 back tyre = not much grip.so off home I went though did have a good knock about with a rz500 2 stroker.he pulled on me slowly through the bends then we hit this longish straight and seeya, quickest thing that left me all day.[:0]

i suppose so,but it don`t take hp through there,just handling and braking.something my old thing isn`t great at though it does make a very good account of itself.the guys i ride with have zzr1200, sp1,cbr250r and a shadow 750.mixed bunch hey,but all agree the old suzi goes like a cat with a scolded arse.the sp1 rider constantly harrasses me to update to a full sporter.however where is the fun in that.i fish with 4 pound line.by the way do you rev your gsxr1000 out to peak revs when your running it in? just a thought.

Dinorider, dont do it! Stick to the old school Suzuki mate.Amongst all the masses of latest model weponery its good to see some interesting oldskoolers keeping the rest of em honest, and commanding their share of respect. Beautiful.

yes mate i think i will stick with the old metal,one thing is for sure there must have been a lot of changes in the rating of horsepower because bikes that should inhilate me just aren`t:D
