Here are the bikes. Finially got the new 1st gen finished up and took it out for a ride. It rides SO different than my 2nd gen. It's really comfortable and turns easy. I get on my bike and it feels like a slug in the corners for some reason. I gotta figure out why. I really like the 1st gen though - the 2nd gen looks better though :)









What do you think? I love em! :)

Well, all of us 1st gen owners know why it's SO different and the only reason the 2nd gen looks better is because you have a 1st gen S model. If it was a naked, it would be no contest. :wink:

Nice rides!

I love the S models...I just not a fan of the whole streetfighter thing...Thanks for the comments!

Why are the 1st gens different? I have a stock front end on it (mush) and I put a SRAD low mileage GSXR-750 rear shock on it. So the tail is up a little higher, but it is really smooth into the corners and it feels like I have to fight my bike more to get it to turn. My second gen just doesn't feel as confident in the corners, but I do have the suspension all changed up...

that's a heavy hitting combo there.
:twisted:
I just don't dig the square tube frame of the 2nd gens however.
