Yes.......come next year I will actually be able to insure one of these.

Probably a very bad idea, but still.

There's something to the 20 valve high-rev'n motor in the R1 that appeals to me.  Drool

Plus, it's the better looking bike between the two IMHO.

I put 1,500 miles on an '04 GSXR1000 and it was a great bike. More power than I needed, though.

I've ridden all the big liter bikes, and the GSX-R always seems to impress me more than the others. Great power, great handling, IMO, the complete package... the others always lack in at least one area compared to the gixxer.

So maybe it's possible I might consider the above comment as somewhat

RIGHT ON!

I like the Blackbird a lot (it's in one of my other polls).  The smoothness appeals to me.  I haven't seen a bike that looked as smooth at high speed, if onboard cam videos are any indication.

But a bike with less hp and less weight would suit me fine, especially if it wasn't a torture rack.
