Don't know that I can agree with that.

just because you watch the sport doesn't mean you're not a squid.

That's like saying just because you watch NASCAR, you're not an idiot cager.

No - it isnt. Substitute Formula 1 or Grand Prix if you prefer - concept is the same.

Just because you watch the sport does not mean you actually know what you're doing, and no, it does not remove "squid status".

You're gonna be wearing that squid label for a while my friend - that seawall thread is going to haunt you...

You would most definitely be able to keep up. Some of the most fun times I've had riding was actually BEHIND a 250.

honorsdaddy is right on about the 750
This quote pretty much says the same thing but it sums up why a 750 over a 600.

Quote:
Like everything else, pricing on the two Gixxers is close—at $11,999, the bigger bike costs just $400 more. Unless there’s a massive disparity in insurance rates—or you’re racing for 600cc contingency checks—it’s hard to justify the 600 over the 750, especially if the street is where you primarily ride. The upsized engine adds useful grunt at low and middle revs, right where you want it leaving stops or passing trucks. It’s not just faster, but easier to ride. Go ahead and get lazy with the gearbox, the throttle will happily hide you sloth. The perfect middle ground between the GSX-R600 and liter-sized 1000, there’s a strong argument that the GSX-R750 is the perfect-sized sportbike.
