oh, i know how to murder the streets allright. lol. and do you really think i rode that many bikes, plus all the ones ive owned to work and back everyday...and somehow NOT know where the powerband is????! seriously? SRSLY?! if you mean traffic, that wasnt a problem for me. while everyone was at work in their offices, i was at work too...test riding their bike on a freeway with plenty of room. 59 between airport blvd and 610 was my "office".

i think we all know that, yes, 600's dont have the get up of 1000's but my point about the r6 is that the thing is incredibly underwhelming compared to other 600's that i rode.

in the end though everything was lame to me after riding...and you would never guess...a KX65. yea...weird i know. but the thing is bite sized greased lightning. itll power wheelie in 3rd with a fat man on it. (i witnessed it)

im really thinking my next bike is going to be a 2 stroke 250 something or other set up for street. speed is overrated. acceleration is where its at.
