King of the Hopeless
Ok, I am at a dealership this morning and I ask one of the guys about getting a new 600 and using it as a race bike/ track bike. (This is a Honda/ Kawi. dealer.) He tells me that the two best bikes are the R6 and the CBR600RR. He tells me that the GSXR has no midrange and said that they break down and have problems when raced. He said the suspension stinks etc. (Which frankly I thought was a bunch of [email protected]@p because every guy I know that races replaces the rear shock and does the fork internals.) He said he raced in several organizations including CCS and that he races a CBR- which he thought was the best bike. I said that I was told that the GSXR has the best contingency money and has the most parts options out there if you want to race. He also said that the CBR was the most crash worthy of the four bikes. (Incidentally he not so subtly trashed my S4- but that is another thread.) I have been told that if you want to race at a club level that the Suzuki is one of the best choices- in fact some things that are exactly the opposite of what this guy was saying. SO what are everyones opinions about this?
