Good Morning/ Evening all. My name is Nick, I live in the West Midlands. I’ve been riding since I was 16 I’m now 33 so if my maths is correct I’ve been a bike for 17 years or so. I’ve just purchased a k1 GSXR 600 which I’m picking up this week. This is going to be a project bike for me. It has been streetfightered and will need a fair amount of work to get road worth and up to scratch. This is not my first Gixer in my 17 years riding. This will be my third. I had a GSXR 400 GK76A when I was 19 which I adored as with most favourite bikes regret selling. Then 18 months ago I had a k5 GSXR1000 which again was awesome and I regret selling. I went the way of naked bikes for comfort but recently decided I wanted a 600 as a project and toy.

I look forward to saying hello to everyone and I hope you will all be able to help me with some info here and there.

Please see below my GSXR 400 and my GSX1000 K5. I will post pics of my 600 when I collect it.


Thanks

Nick

West Midlands? I had to google it. I was actually in Coventry for a conference 15-ish years ago.
Getting a K6 1K and selling it without enjoying her for a few years? Unforgivable!!!*

Welcome mate

Welcome! I'm not sure which one I'd regret more, the 1000 or the 400!

Thanks for the welcome... my misses had just got into riding and was riding around on a Honda Grom... which didn't suit me to well on the 1000 so I swapped for a naked.... the naked was ok but it wasn't the gixxer!

I regretted the 400 for years! I was eager to follow my mates onto 600/750s so rushed out got a ZXR750 and regretted selling the 400 ever since!
