I don't like Starbucks and my Ducati does no posing runs.
I do drink water and my Duc likes to make apex strafing runs.

Really, all you need is a blue n white GSXR, bandana, flip-flops, Oakleys and a few bottles of hair gel. That'll complete the look. Way cheaper Extra points for chromed swingarms. Thats why GSXR owners are so much cooler.

It worked OK. It ruined the whole ownership experience when bandana wearing mouth breathers would tell me "yo, that shit is dope," and suggest that I needed an LED kit and more chrome.

Bah. Triumph 675 FTW. Cheaper, lighter, better handling, and much more style.

Dollar for Dollar, thats the bike.

in the middleweight class, I'll agree somewhat as long as you dont need cheap spares.

Woodcraft clipons and rearsets cost about the same for GSXRs and 675s. Forks are plain ol Kayaba's just like the ZX-6. Levers and calipers are Nissin just like the GSXR. I think that covers most of the spares one would need, all at about the same price!
