potential 954 convert
Hey all, fresh meat here.
I am shopping around for a new bike since I sold my 600, and have looked at darn near everything out there including naked bikes, Yamahas, Suzuki's, even a Ducati. I have kind of whittled it down to the 2003 954 (new, at least one local at the dealership) or a 2005 GSXR750.
I am open to a little comparison from those that care to (I am 5 foot 6 and weigh about 130 after a meal).
Anyone who happens to know of a new 03 offered at a California dealer I would also be interested in hearing from since my local dealer apparently took drugs before pricing the 03 on the show room floor.
Benefits of the Suzuki aside from being a newer model year also includes the cute Suzuki financing which helps sell the wife ($99/month for 4 years--then lots of pain and suffering thereafter), and a godawful yellow color scheme that will hopefully repel cages as well as it attracts bees.
I am a long term Honda guy though and the 954 seems more comfy and less prone to the nuts and bolts complaints all over the Gixxer forums.
I appreciate any input.
