Last night I was out for my evening jont on the RC, when I saw a GSXR1K pull out behind me, it was a long straight, and I was going 50mhp (limit was 40) and he came up on me super fast...I just stayed even throttle, and kept about my business.  

He kept doing the fade back, then slam it right up behind me, over and over...

I soon started to become irritated, and turned onto a road known to be one of the most twisty in the area.  As he followed me, I then unleashed the sound of some very pissed off satos!

I was slamming through the mountain turns and pounding the asphalt like it was my worse enemy.  I saw the flicker of headlight behind me though the first turn, then never again.  He must have been a newbie, because I toasted him.

The road is one of my fav's, and best known.  Otherwise I would never have done that.  Also on my ride last night I decided I am in heavy need of some rear sets...If my feet were just a little bit lower and a small amount fwd...things would rock!

Now, if that guy was a weathered rider...LOL...I think he would have handed me my ass!

Rearsets for the RC are only going to go up and/or back, definitely not forward. The Satos are the only rearsets that you can put in the stock position.

OMG, and from your topic title I thought you were entertaining the thought of buying a Gixxer

Although I'd still love to ride one...
