I started out on My 1000rr, I have never been on a 600rr.

You need to respect the power, especially accelerating out of a corner...

I am very comfortable on my 1000, however I can see how other people would feel better on a 600.

a 1000 requires more self control on the throttle, a 600 tends not to spin the tire when exiting a corner.
In this area there is a big difference in safety.

I was on my way to work on the interstate, there was a cluster of cars behind me and another cluster up ahead.
So I give it about half throttle to join the other group of cars up ahead,
I glanced at my speedo, read 151 mph. It felt like 90 mph ...

This 1000rr has a lot of power, you just gotta use some self control thats all......

I can see why a lot of people say to buy a 600rr , you gotta be carefull........

Then on my way home from work Friday I was in a 45 mph zone, I looked down at my speedo because a police car just passed going the other way, I was going 88 mph, with only a little throttle..low rpm's at that speed...

my muffler is stock, bike is really quiet and I enjoy the high torque.

600 cc = Crotch Rocket
1000 cc = Super Bike

I Agree......
I can see how some would feel overwhelmed in a Viper.......just not me.

I meant the power of a viper or a GT3. if I could upgrade the crappy OEM suspension in a viper I'd be fine

but that's the power difference b/t a 600 and a 1000. hopefully one day I'll be able to pin it, with a wheelie out of the corners, ha!

Most of your post is correct, but your full of sh*t if you think 151 feels like 90!

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

I'd honestly say your best bet is to take the insurance money and get a decent 08 1krr, and use the leftover to get an 08+ r6 for a track bike.

It's the best combo you can have

08 Black/Silver CBR1000RR-street & track, all black on the track

09 black r6- track only

+1 on a 600 for the track . Wish I had one for the track they are flickable and have enough power to have fun and ride with the big bikes if you are fast enough in the corners.

for sure. I love the liter on the track from time to time, but only on tracks that have crazy straights and are high-speed. Road atlanta's front stretch is 130-140ish and the backstretch is 170+ on a liter, but at any other track around me the 6 is perfect. The ONLY complaint I have is the low end power on the 6's. Other than that, they're a blast

My last track bike was an old 2003 ZX6R 636. Had full ti Akra, Penske, Brembo, the works. After a brief learning curve (mainly dialing in the suspension for me, and convincing myself that middleweights like to be flogged mercilessly), my times improved over those when I expressly rode 1000's at trackdays.

It was an awesome feeling passing literbikes in corners.
