The joy of owning a GSXR
The biggest thing that stands out in my mind about owning a GSXR is the fact this IS a race motorcycle NOT a commuter like a SV650 or even a 1000. Despite essentially the same engine displacement the GSXR will smoke a SV so easily its a joke, 650 or 1000. The racetrack high performance that few of any equal sized bikes can touch looks to me a tradeoff for the moody reliability. Everything has a price and to me the little headaches that are part of owning a street-legal race bike are definitely worth the street owning performance.
When I'm laying in my bed at night & I hear that familiar inline four 10k howl of some crazy SOB a mile off screaming down the road I just smile. 😏
