I'm heading to my Suzuki dealer tomorrow for a test ride. Love what you did with the Givis. It's between on of these and an FZ6. Or a Bandit 1250. Gawd, I hate sitting on the fence But, there does seem to be a lot of plastic on this bike. Good to hear it can stay on for an oil change though. They're even going to let me try a GSXR750! I would never buy one, but it will be kind of neat to ride one.....yes mom, I'll go slow!
