size me up ...

helllo again ...

you may have met me in the intro forum ... maybe not. anyway, i've been riding all my life and now reside to my father's heritage softtail and zx-6r. i've got the bug right now and want to invest in a weekend bike. i really like the ninja that my dad has but i am biased to honda's through growing up with my built Si back in the day. the ninja seems to ride a little high for me though as i am only 5'9". i wanted to see if anyone could give me some input on the sizes of the 600 class. i would guess the gsxr would be a little smaller but what about the cbr? i figure i want something more lightweight and smaller overall than the ninja but i'm not sure if any 600's fit the description. if anyone has any quick insiight i'd appreciate it as i've been all over the for sale section latley.

thanks

I had a kawi zzr600. It was really heavy. I sat on a CBR and it was a world's difference. Riding it was alot better too.
I have ridden GSXRs as well. They were great on the take offs and stops but didn't handle nearly as fluidly as the cbr

Its all personal preference
