    if you an expirenced rider and the grand or so price difference doesn't bother you i'de say go for the 1000 cause the weight difference i think is only like 30 or so pounds so its not gonna be a huge difference in handling plus if i remember right the new 1k cbr's are gonna have not officially gonna have it but they have a form of traction control, but what kinda driving do you do cause thats gonna make a big difference if you want to just do around town i8 might consider the 600 but if you want to do some harder riding i would consider the 1k especially if your gonna do any track or drag riding

    i have an 07 600 and love it. amazing bike all around. but its no 1000 lol. if you can handle it and afford it... get the 1000rr no question. wish i had gotten one.. but this was my first bike and had no desire to kill myself so i stuck with the 600

    well, im not going to be doing any racing if i can help it but there might be occasions where i wil b eon the interstate a couple hundred miles one way. i am more experienced on larger cruiers (1800/1100 Goldwings) so i want something thats not going to vibrate my ass apart on the long haul, anyone know how these bikes do on the interstate for moderte long hauls?
    /thanks

    Just about any sport bike is going to suck for long hauls as far as comfort

    And anyone who thinks a 600rr isn't enough for them is probably too busy trying to kill themselves in a straight line then actually riding a motorcycle

    not gonna lie if your used to the cruisers then the long haul may be a lil rough until you get used to the position but some heli bars and a tobin seat will make for a better riding position cause the seat will drop you a lil which will make for a more sitting up position and the heli bars will raise the handles which sits you up more especially since your not really doing any racing but still either ones gonna feel fast as hell compared to your cruiser and light as a mother fucker and rattling isn't too bad as long as you don't change out your bar ends for some light ass ones maybe some throttle meisters would be good to for what your looking for?

    holy fucking hell use a comma or period or hit enter every once in a while that shit is hard to read without any punctuation because we don't know where one thought ends and the other begins but punctuation would make it easier to get a complete thought through to the reader so maybe next time you could help a brotha out and give us some clues I know I'd appreciate it and others probably would too when they're reading your posts

    I'd say i prefer the 1000 for around town riding because it has more available power at around-town RPM's. Its more like driving a car with two wheels than an I4 that needs to be spooled up to get usable power.

    I ride a -1/+2 F4 and i'm comparing it to my friends R1 that i babysat for six weeks.

    sounds good. i figured since there isnt that much price diffrence, i will probally get the 1k, it will have more 'pwer on demand' when i need it; at least thats what im going for. the closest ive rode to a 1k sportbike is a honda 929 that had some toys. i took care of it for a buddy who was deployed (fun bike)

    cruisers are heavy, but handle good, they are deceiving, trust me, low center of gavity on the Honda ones due to opposing cylinders low to the ground. actually a fun ride, not to mention 1800cc to get your ass moving.

    im not going to be making long hauls, but correct me if im wrong that bigger cc bikes tend to 'cruise' down the highway better (smoother?) than smaller bikes?

    thats what i thought, i know thats how it is in the cruiser world, so i assumed it was true across the board.

    hm....
    totally ot from this thread, but im buying an 08 xr650L in like three weeks too, its going to be my put across town bike, and play on the weekends. thats why im kinda torn over the 600 or 1k, it would be the extra bike....

    I've had both, a 600 and now an r1.

    For daily riding the 1k is much easier since it has more torque.

    that being said its VERY easy to get yourself in trouble.

    i was wondering about that. is it more sensitive than another large sport bike such as a 929 or f4i? is it that much worse, i have never driven a 1k, but i have driven a couple 600rr's
