A Gixxer Christmas in SoCal

by Gixxer George

Christmas in California is a very strange — sunny, warm sandy beaches and a mysterious of the flakey white stuff. is especially the case for a Canadian who is normally back home the holidays throwing back a few too wobbly pops while to rekindle some old high flames.

This year was to be different with my Christmas coming in the form of a Suzuki 750. Time to call mom and her to put away the ice fishing poles and syrup, I’ll be going this Christmas!

Although the is unchanged for 2007 it was still on my of most anticipated bikes to this year. The last 750 ridden was the 2003 version I raced for a half a season. I the bike to go Superstock racing in the AMA but the rules were changed I ended up selling the bike and a 1000 to compete in the newly 1000cc Superstock class.

I can say I was pretty upset about the change because I was starting to in love with the 750.

Fast forward 4 years and I was back at the track which I in my first AMA race. California I always feel a little at this track.

Although the at Fastrack always remind us how this track is and the ample run off it it doesn’t change the fact in the last few years racing I’ve had a few too many chances to out the excellent infield emergency the track provides.

Five in the last four years at place and I’m starting to the track was built on Elm Street it’s been a bit of a nightmare for me!

California turned out to be just and the weather was perfect for a day of testing at the track day in Fontana. I felt comfortable on the bike right the opening laps. Suzuki just seem to fit me with feeling out of place. The ergonomics of the are very good and it’s an easy bike to tuck in on.

taking a few laps to get re-accustomed to the I started to push the pace good and the GSX-R responded a champ.

Coming off the banking at there is a quick series of which force you to muscle the with some pretty body-English. The Suzuki handled it and was … stable through the with all the nimbleness of a smaller

Turns ten and eleven at Fontana are of a kink than a turn, on to the back straightaway. This is one of the important parts of the track for a lap time. It’s also a that can be very intimidating on a handling motorcycle, due to some good bumps and a transition in the In fact whenever the nationals around I always tell who are viewing a race for the first to pull up some grass in the exiting the kink.

They are to see some of the most frightful slappers known to man.

The idea is for my companions to watch savage headshakes lap after leaving them with the we racers are some type of warriors. Just need to sure I wear an extra visor so these same don’t see the look of panic over my face as I get rag dolled the back straight with my being wrenched out of their

This might have me a little more lily-livered like a modern day gladiator. was not the case, however, on the GSX-R I was able to take the kink open and fully tucked in the confidence that the Suzuki never get out of shape.

In fact the section of the track normally had me a little weak-kneed had now my favorite part of the track.

The chicanes at are a great test of the chassis and a lot of trust in the handling and suspension of the The GSX-R’s inverted 41mm front forks and Showa shock met the challenge and was turning Speedway into a track I was starting to enjoy. What a a good handling motorcycle can

A few clicks to stiffen up the front end all that was needed to have the behaving the way I like.

Fontana has two braking areas where the and ramp-type slipper clutch can be tested. This is another where the GSX-R really to shine. The GSX-R 750 features brake discs work radial mount calipers and front brake master The brakes were exceptional and I myself out-braking many in the group who were surely not stock lines and pads.

The motor on the GSX-R 750 has a very seamless delivery with an feel to it. There are no big hits in the just a steady heightening of The motor is a little lacking in the forcing you to keep the revs up on exit. You have to ride it like a 600 than a 1000 to get the potential out of the GSX-R. Keep the close to its rev ceiling at 15,000 rpm and have the GSX-R singing

The 750 has a compact combustion chamber 12.5:1 compression ratio, intake and exhaust ports for intake and exhaust efficiency and power output. The Suzuki out around 126 HP to the rear wheel, but love to see what Matsushima (the successful AMA Formula roadrace team) could do this motor. Sounds a recipe for the ultimate club

Bridgestone’s new BT-002 Pro tires fitted for my day at Fontana. I have a bit of experience on Bridgestone’s and have been impressed by their characteristics. Their newest tire is first-rate and they are the most stable tire ridden on.

Grip level and were excellent the whole day no excessive wear.

Oh ya, did I mention I rode the bike on the street? I tend to get a little race biased at times. The street of the test took place on Hwy. 74.

The GSX-R is also a great ride on the street. It’s nimble when the road twisty or when changing on the freeway and the suspension offered a ride.

While the electric motor of the Suzuki might not your nipples when you the hammer, it will make it a choice for riders who are looking for a bike to ride every

There is some buzziness at the that can be noticed on the longer rides.

While riding the on the street for a few weeks I was surprised by how people took note of the looks of the Suzuki. There more than a few comments on the done short under exhaust.

Personally I think the classiest looking stock on any bike in any class. The 750 also physically small which is to be for a bike that only in at 4 pounds more than the 600. Put the two side by side and tough to tell them aside from the weeny 600 on the 750’s little sibling.

I long been saying the GSX-R 750 would make an club racer and even a few racing comrades to buy one before actually ridden the bike. So into this test I got the to see if I actually knew what I was about.

After riding the Suzuki I can say it was advice well given. The 750 does everything you ask of it and more. handling and useable power are the this is still one of the most sportbikes on the market.

So am I disappointed I a week of arctic weather and Tim donuts?

Unless Suzuki a GSX-R snowmobile to ride up in the white north, I’ll be staying right here motorcycles in sunny California!
