Greetings all. I got my new Gixxer 600 on Saturday. I used to ride a lot 15 or so years ago, had a Yamaha RD350LC, but I had a long break from it. I got a GSX600f last year in July, cos that seemed like a more sensible choice than getting a true sportsbike. I got to the point where I wasn't happy with the handling and braking on the F so after a test ride and two trips to the Suzuki Performance Riding school here in the UK I decided that a GSXR600 was for me. I ride every day to and from work, even in the wet and cold and I had to have a bike that I could trust in terms of handling.
