The 93 750 was the first gixxer that I sat on when I was deciding on a bike at the time.

The other bike was Katana. I'm glad I made a good :punk lasting decision back then.


Your bike looks really good!

Looks really good. Is that frame polished? It looks really shiny at the top. I loved my 93 750 also. They are just really good all-around bikes.

ya polished frame (previous owner did that one before i got it :punk) and i painted the wheels white again last week, just before new tires. some 2 part iso-urethane super duper enamel paint or something, had it lying around from some other project. the color is interlagos blue, a bmw color from their new M series lineup (and a few other cars). I must say, all my buddies hate on my bike, but i feel like its a nice looking bike overall, and a great driving one too. I think they just are either jealous because its faster than anything they would ever own, or too scared to be on a sport bike. They like my buddies BMW 1200c. Its pretty dont get me wrong, but I rode it and i hate it. Too soft, too boring, too quiet and too slow. I feel like a 50 year old man on it lol

I know what you mean...

My dad just bought a Triumph Tiger and came over to show it off...I took it for a spin, but it's not my cup of tea.

Plus the joys of owning an old bike: Endless tinkering to keep you form getting bored :biggrin

I don't know if i could even own a brand new bike. I would be to scared to mess with a 13,000 dollar investment. :)

yeah, i crashed my 87 hurricane 3 times and I just fixed her up each time... bought it for 2600, rode it for 6 years.

But I'm glad to have this 1100 now, seems like more options to customize than the cbr. also the liter engine leaves better patches
