This was the big brother to the GSXR 750. I never owned a 750, I rode GPz 900R’s at the time. But I did own 2 of the GSXR 1100’s. The first one [the best one] was stolen from outside the house, parked in front of the lounge window.The second I think I sold/traded in for something else.

Looks a bit dated now and overweight, but in the day, this thing could motor. This bike was the ‘daddy’ no doubts. It was along with the GSXR 750, the start of the current ‘superbike’ craze for street bikes that were [very] close to race bikes.

This bike was the inspiration to the Honda Fireblade.
