Re: Second more comfy bike
Before you call this idea crazy, go sit on one -
2003 - 2004 GSXR 1000.
Riding position feels like an arm chair compared to an R1 or an R6.
LOADS of power, and lots of torque down low and through the mid range - not a revvy top end bike at all. Very neutral handling. and, over here at least, theyre near half the price of say, an R1 of the same year.
I had one as a second bike to my old R1 and I used it as a daily commuter, did several trackdays on it and used it for several multi-day touring rides (2-3k miles in 4-5 days type thing)
Always comfortable, even when in the saddle all day for days on end, super reliable. one of the best bikes I've owned - its just a bit fugly to look at the front
