I am no drag racer by any means, i actually have no intrest in drag racing, im more of a track guy but hey i was open to the offer. Just in power i am not impressed at all with the new GSXR here is a link to my myspace vids check it out!
(this was on a dead end street that is next to a GM plant that closed down a year ago, so no traffic)

because it makes its power at higher rpm ,you dont feel it pull until around 8 grand .

its a track motor not a street bike.Which bike was shifting so soon ? was liike 2 gears almost right after each other.neither one sounded liek they got into high rpm.

with the gixxer if you want a fast start you gotta scream the motor and eat the clutch or its gonna be a dog off the line.There is pretty much no power under 8 grand and it feels like its missing a cylinder until it gets the rpm it needs.It takes getting used to ,but once the launch is messed up there isnt much chance of catching up.

are you a f**?.............yup
Let's not resort to name calling, otherwise, I'll have to issue a warning :) Let's keep it peaceable around here. Thanks! And while the Gixx has a ton of top end power, it's a fatty. Heavy.

thanks for that good info, i dont know if you read my first post it said it is a dead end street behind the af base there is no one out there and no reason for traffic to drive down. It is an ideal place to practice doing whatever you do.

if you dont like my video then watch it and dont say anything. If you like it then reply and talk about it. I didnt have to put it up, i just figured someone might wanna see what the bikes do side by side.

Panties stuck in your a$$? you obviously took my comment the wrong way. "Was that a race" meaning you had him by 4 or 5 bikes once you past the camera. In other words...damn the 08 gixxer is that slow?

Second when you post $hit on the internet, people are gonna reply with there opinions, both positive and/or negative. Only way to control that is , DON'T POST! :wave:
