I Ride: ZX-6R, Concours 1400
My ZX6R is the smallest bike I've ever owned, including a couple ZX11s. They're just different. I'm enjoying the 6 but I don't think it's a LONG term bike for me. We shall see.

I retract my statement. You're not awesome. Or maybe you are?

But my point was that saying a 1000 is pointless for track is not true.

1000's on the street are OK sometimes too... but 1st gear is usually so tall that you're goin' 40mph by the time you get the clutch all the way out lol. My next street bike will be a 1000 but not a supersport. (Unless it's an RC51)
FZ10!
Every review are ravving about how good it is. Can't wait to take a demo ride.

For the track near me, Loudon, Thompson, Palmer - We can't hit pass 4th gear. I think for the fast guys at Thompson, they are hitting 150's?
But next year, Club Motorsports in NH - Looks amazing.

I don't find the r1 intimidating despite its blistering power (especially after the decat and ecu flash), actually I find the chassis and overall feel of the bike gives me far more confidence than the previous bikes Iv owned which were 600s. What I'm saying is there's much more to a bike than its engine size.
The 08 R1 is pretty sweet! Did you get the recall done on yours?
Who did your reflash? Add some FGRT and TTX goodies and my god, you got yourself a track bike.

Wasn't aware of a recall on the 08, I did hear the 07s had ecu issues....only had mine a year but no problems as of yet lol. The ecu I sent to the states (from uk) to a guy Nick Marino who's company is xplane custom tuning (were companies in uk but doing research heard nothing but praise for his services.) definitely transformed the bike in so many areas....well worth doing and couldn't be happier.

To me asking which one is better is like asking which woman is better a thick woman or a slim woman. They are just different and I like them all. I find 600's to be more fun in the corners and 1000's to be more fun on the straights. I hate hearing people say that there is no skills with going straight, all you are doing is twisting the throttle. With a 600, at the end of the straights you're going like 140/150 mph and on a 1000 you're going like 160/170 mph. With the 1000 if you do not chicken out by braking early, coming to that corner with those speed really get the heart pumping and honestly, I find that is where I do most of my passing since a lot of people are scared to brake late. Plus with the 1000, even going straight you need good throttle control because in the lower gears wheelies can surprise you and kill drive; that wheelie surprise never happens to me on a 600. On the street, the 1000 feels safer because I have instant monster power at any given moment so if danger is around, I can get away from it, with what feels like instant power/speed. While on the 600 you have to be in the right gear and power range (the whole build up power thing).

If I could only have one bike to do all type of riding, I would go with my 1000. If I was only able to ride track then I would keep the 600. I find it more fun beating up on people at the track with a 600 rather then a 1000. When you beat up on people with 1000's they say, "Well it's a 1000." When you beat up on people with a 600 they shut the f@&k up and walk away.
