I know I'm gonna buy a 1 litre V-twin. Does anyone have any praises or gripes about either one of these? I'd really love to get the Suzuki, but the RC51 sounds good too. Any advice????

Kinda like an on/off toggle switch responding throttle?

I also heard something about the rotary damping system on the rear, instead of a normal shock.
Thanks Uncle Bob. So which would you say is better? Or are they about the same? I like the look of the Tiller and the front of the RC51 is just butt ugly.
I really want a Tiller, but I was considering the GSXR 750. Probably a 2001 or '01 Gixxer. I'm not opposed to the idea but, at the same time I don't want the same thing everyone else has. V-twins aren't near as common as the 600 thru 1k inline fours. I guess it in my nature to be different.
Thanks Fox. I still got a few months before I can buy anything, but I appreciate all the help you guys can give. Nice to know a great board full of knowledgeable people willin to help someone out.
