My first bike was an 04 Kawi 636 that i rode for 6 months or so and put on 3500 miles in 2007. Admittedly i ride like a whore, no stunting, speeding, canyon carving, none of that. I may have hit 100 mph once just to see what it felt like. I sold the bike the following spring and did not ride at all in 2008. Since then I've gotten fatter. My weight has ballooned from 250 to my current 285. Im six feet tall BTW. I am ready to buy a new bike and i was looking at a 600cc sportbike but all I have spoken to have advised that I am too damn big and I should move on to a liter bike. Tons of deals on 07 and 08 1000rr's out there. So my question is, Are there any big boys like me on a 1000 that may have purchased a 600 had there size not been a factor? Hell I would like to save on insurance also as the 600 is $340 a year vs $540 a year for the 1000. I've also been told that if i buy a 600 I'll have trouble ridin chicks cuz the max a 600 can hold is about 370 which means i'd have to ride wafer thin chicks!! Thanks.
