So here's the deal. I purchased this little rocket in March of 2010. It's bike number 25 (I think) in a long line of mostly sport bikes, including (but not limited to Kaw Ninjas, Ducati, Yamaha R6, CBRs, etc., etc.)
I've wanted one for a long time. They hold a unique and legendary place in the constellation of high performance repli-racers for good reason. It's really hard to beat the all-around goodness of nice grunt, superlative handling and light weight.
Just like it's talked about in the story of the Three Bears - "This one's just right!." Being that it's my third Suzuki, reliability was never in question. You gotta take a sledge hammer to this bike (when it's not looking) before anything will go wrong with it.
I love the white and silver paint scheme on this bike, but the others are good, too. I did have to adjust my riding style a little bit to get used to differences like how quickly it turns into a corner, similar to my R6, but sufficiently different.
Overall the suspension is really excellent and infinitely adjustable, so important in a performance bike. There is a lot more grunt when powering out of corners than my R6 had, too.
But all bikes are different enough that you have to re-learn to become one with the machine. One last thing that really makes me love it when compared to other sport bikes.
I ride just about everyday. There's much more commuting than real pleasure carving, and it just about has to have the most comfortable ergonomics of any of the super sport machines out there.
I went on a four-day tour from Virginia Beach to Deals Gap NC (rode the Dragon finally, lot's of fun), then came back up the entire length of the Blue Ridge parkway and back to Chesapeake. I was pretty darn comfortable the whole trip. Yeah, I can honestly endorse the goodness of the GSX-R 750.
Upgrades/Accessories: It doesn't really need much. Styling wise, it already has turn signals, and the brake light integrated into the body (up front, in the mirrors and in the tail section of the rear end), no "sticky outties" - nice.
I did replace the overly done license plate holder for a small unobtrusive one, put on a hot bodies tire hugger (wanted a white one to match) and some no-cut frame sliders.
I may upgrade the brake lines to SS in the not too distant future, but the brakes are pretty good, so not a necessity right now.
