how do you like the triple compared to your gixxer750? thinking about selling the s1000 and picking up a 675r next year

i like it better than my gsxr and im really lovin the sound of havin a 3 cylinder dont get me wrong guys but it feels like the 675 pulls harder compare to my 750 but when it comes to cornering tho id choose the 750 prolly because its lower and the riding position is not that aggressive compare to 675 which is way higher...my buddy has the R and that thing is really sexy man...id say go for it

higher seat height and aggressive riding position wouldn't necessarily be bad for me because it'll be my bike for the t rack hehe. i've always been intrigued by that triple. good power and tons of mid range as well. and those damn ohlins

might be possible to get a good deal on any remaining 675R's before the new gen comes out next year

CharlieH, EvilX, you guys should try to keep your toes pointed forward and in. Looks like your opening up your hips and trying to reach, causing your toes to point out and down.

Once you start leaning the bike more, you might catch your toe and trust me it hurts.

i have a hard time keeping my inside foot in place when im hanging off the bike. i end up resting my heel on my swing arm and it feels much more planted. toe slider's already grinded down to shits though

yes I agree, but as you lean lower your legs come back closer hence your toes will point forward

I hit my toe sliders on the 250 race bike @ willowsprings a year back...not really painful but kinda werid haha but good thing is my sidi's can replace those sliders

Found a shot taken of me looking back at my friend during our warm up lap. I actually like this action shot quite a bit.
