05 R1 or 05 GSXR-1000

Whats up fellas....(and ladies). I just wanted to post a couple of lines.
I am about to drop a few Benjamins on a brand new bike. The problem I'm facing is that I'm torn between the 05 GSXR 1000 (yellow/blk paint scheme) and the 05 R1 (raven paint scheme).
I am looking for answers to which one will satisfy the craven to get back on two wheels. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

MB3 Go with the R1 Raven!! Really both are excellent bikes, however I feel Yamaha really has their stuff together.

The cracking frames on the 05's is enough to make me wait for the 06.

Too much for 250 character limit! [email protected]. Horrible tires.

I love the Gixxers...love the looks, power, everything...except the Yellow. Go with the Raven...that is one sharp bike.

If you want the best handling, best performing, and basically the best bang for the buck...buy the GSXR.

YA THINK???

Thanks Gas Man and thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Making the big choice on either Mon. 29th or Tue. 30th......man the 05 R1 raven looks sweet but the 05 GSXR 1000 yellow/blk makes my tastebuds tingle . This site gives major props to the GSXR http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/Articl...D=2086&Page=10

So many options.....

They are both about the same price. Either dealer will price match which ever one you want. Have you sat on both bikes yet? Which one feels more comfortable to you?

If I had to get used to one or the other anyway I would be On the Ravin in a flash. That thing is just awesome.
