Why the 954 is so great....

Just wanted to share with you my friends experience riding my 954 the other day. He owns a 2002 GSXR 1000. It has full hindle, TFI box, etc.
...now he rides my 954 with a devil slip on and -1 gearing, he was making me offers to buy my bike....both our bikes have the same mileage(under 3000)..any way, he could not believe the power of the bike....he loved it. He owned Honda before(2002 F4i) and really liked it, but it got stolen. So when I had the gixxer 750, he liked it and bought the Gixxer 1000. Its a great bike(very powerful) so he rode my bike and loved it. He told me how comfortable it was..couldnt believe what an animal the bike was and how hard it pulls....

Just thought I'd share you this story why Honda's are the BEST BIKES with USEABLE POWER in the street and the track, they pulll like animals dammit!!! (much nicer looking to especially the faster silver/black)

The gsxr 1000 is no slouch by any means so him telling me that made me want to not get rid of the bike...I want the 1000RR too!!!

I heard that the motors on those things explode when you hold them wide open in top gear for a few minutes.



And then there's this asshole...

Your friend sounds like he could be the east coast cousin of Chain.

I loved my 954 so much that I slid it into a big rock and smashed the engine apart.

And then there's this asshole...
