My Girlfriend!

I think this is the right time for me to post my review after running my Gixxer SF for 4000+ kms. I had used to bike for long drives (400km in a day) like twice in a month and also I'm using for my regular office commute. This is the best bike I ever love. I'm 6.2' inch tall and I never felt small sitting in this bike. Tucking is not a problem. In my earlier bike rides (discover, pulsar hero, honda etc) I used to get severe back pains. But, surprisingly I never got back pain even during long drives except for neck sores due to helmet and continuous focus on straight in high ways. Sitting is comfortable. Mileage is good. I get around 40km in highways and I never bothered checking in cities. What is the use of checking after I purchased? :P
I initially had plans to get RE thunderbird 350X. But after deep reviews, I found that they still have the same old engine and their control would be bit tough, especially the vibration problems after you reach a specific rpm.
Bike styling is top notch and all the people in road keeps glaring at me. The biggest positive I felt is the power. The bike never felt like 150cc but more than that. It's power is awesome even when I went on doubles ride. My bike can reach 100kmph within few seconds and it tries to increase even if I don't notice. I went to a max of 113kmph and I didn't feel any vibrations or difficulty/resistance to the engine. The engine is smooth. Another interesting thing is my bike overtakes KTMs and REs (like a pro) and I feel proud to see my bike cruise like a top sports bike infront of them though they too try to race with me. However, I keep my speed below 110km for my own safety and to not give overload to the engine. I had used the bike on very bad roads too. The suspension by default will be very hard and you cannot ride fast on non-plain roads. I got them smooth by getting it adjusted (it comes with 7 stage adjustment) and now the suspension feels ok. Dynamics or control using my bike is awesome. Gixxer SF is a well-balanced bike and permits easy cornering despite the fairing. One of the main reasons why i choose this bike was due to the straight handlebar instead on clip-on type. I don't feel confident riding clip on type bikes (I think this will be problem for long rides) and the straight handlebar on a sports bike is like filling gap between sports and highway cruise bikes. I'm extremely happy with my choice. One disadvantage I found was with pillion seat. It is not much comfortable. My friends started feeling uncomfortable just after 30 mins of continuous ride. But SF is best for sole riding and for doubles for short rides.
I do feel like the clutch and gears are little tight/hard to operate. Sometimes, the clutch and gear box behave odd (probably my bike had that issue) but by adjusting the clutch wires and after I got services, I'm not seeing the problem. Overall, I'm happy with my bike - a perfect companion in replacement of girlfriends :D
