    The Kawasaki looks nicer. They're both kill-yourself bikes though.

    I could see myself riding a cruiser, but I could never ride one of those things. Too twitchy, CoG is too high.

    I think the 600 has had some unexpected engine changes. Supposed to make more mid range power and 3% more peak power I think. I think thats it.

    CBR 600 if you are going to go the 600cc route.

    the kawi will not make you happy. to sloppy imo.

    i would go with the 08 CBR 1000 RR but i have ridden mostly liter bikes.....

    i'm a little intimidated by liter bikes... i can just imagine myself turning the throttle a little too hard during a turn and lowsliding, even if its not realisitic that i would do that

    whichever one feels the best to you because you aren't going to even come close to the full potential of either bike.

    no i can completely understand your feelings on that!

    infact i could probably do just fine on a 600 but i REALLY like the power and torque of the 1000's
    plus im 6'2" 200lb's so the larger bike suits me a little better. that and i have had my old 600 maxed out to where i needed... hmmmm, "wanted" more power. lol
    but they are intimidating for sure. 2nd gear stand up's with just a quick flick of the throttle.
    10 of us just did a nice 350mile round trip to the coast and back, and at sea level my bike just screams!
