help me pick a bike

I am going to buy a 600, either an R6 or GSXR600. I dont mind buying new. The r6 will be an 05 or newer and a Raven, thats all im looking at in R6's. The GSXR600 will be 04 or newer and blue or as close to all black as I can get. If I decide on an 06+ it will be new not used, unless somebody as an awesome deal. So give me some more in-depth comparisons between 05 r6's and 04-05 gsxr600's. Also comparrisons between 05 R6's and 06 R6's and the same on the GSXR. I have found R6's and GSXR's in the year group im looking at around the same price point so it doesnt matter a bunch. If I am buying a new bike and dont care about the maintenance factor just price, I have found that freedom cycles is around the best prices ive seen. Send me some other place if its cheaperer.

Did you take the class??? And yes - every 600 nowadays are identical in performance so get what feels comfy to you! And you'll know when you see the bike you really want!!! Trust me you will know - it took me 3 months of looking around visiting the same dealerships over and over but when I laid eyes on my Daytona I immediately new that was the one!
