I still reckon for the price of something like the Z1000SX you could get a naked bike for civilised riding during the week and then a ZX6R for the track/weekend/canyons. Maybe not brand new, but certainly used. That way you don't have to compromise.

A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.

I agree about the bros always wanting liter bikes.

My soul has always been with the 600. ZX6R, R6, CBR600. They are, to me, perfect.

Let's be realistic, they are fast as fuck. They will outrun anything on the street except a Veyron or GTR or something else with 600RWHP. But I appreciate their handling most of all. A liter bike just doesn't sit right with me when on slower hair pins. A 600 just flicks right around.

It will no doubt be a sad day at CasaDeEuro when there is no longer a 600 available. Even if the middle weights are faster and better on all fronts - nostalgia will kick in regardless. I just bought a 2016 CBR600 and it is kind of upsetting to think by the time I get a new bike there may not be another 600 being made.

But that's just me...
