Talking My New Project. 07Gixxer 600!

So I'm a pretty lucky guy... I got a bike for free!!! My best friend is stationed in Alaska for the next 3to4 years so he decided to leave me his bike. The only catch is that he crashed it and I have to put in some work before I can ride her but other than that its a good day for me. Wish it was a Honda though.
Here are some pics of it after the accident...

I guess you can't use the phrase "I wouldn't even take a suzuki even if it was given to me" HAHA...

Thats an awesome thing for your friend to do. Good luck on the rebuild!

Maine u lucky SOB!

What's the damage other than cosmetic? gixxer600s are great bikes, i rode one for a bit (same color as yours). Track plastics is the way to go, cheap and easy to put on. Good luck with the rebuild man!

The only damage other than cometic is a cracked case on the left and need new mast cylinder. And thats pretty much it. I'm definitly gonna throw some race plastics on it, the RR too.
