Back in my hooligan days,
the 750 was a great bike for me. I spent about 60% of my time stunting/showing off, and about 40% hauling ass. The bike rode nice and was fast, but a little quirky and sometims hard to work on. Now, I'm almost 30
, and the Honda has everything that I wished the 750 had. Its easier to work on. The lighting is better. I like the The quality and finish is noticibly better. Its more comfortable, and the engine is a whole lot smoother. It may not have the raw feeling and race-like attitude of the 750, but overall I think that its a better bike (for me anyway).
Having experienced the loss of the GSXR
, and not wanting to go through that again, I've ordered the Scorpio SR-i500 alarm (that thing is pretty cool.)
and a Dowco cover...and some locks. Also, it stays locked away in my storage unit when I'm not riding.
