Only thing I can add is think long and hard what is causing you to "want" the 600RR.

Obviously, something triggered you wanting to change off a bike you just got, so get those reasons together in your head and make your own decision, for yourself, and not your peers.


And just for an FYI, I am not some "kid who just wants to go 160"

Although I can go 160... :icon_bigg

I was in somewhat of the same situation. I always loved the look of sports bikes, and I too started on a 650, but it is a SV. After 3 months, I wanted a 600rr. Sportsbikes was the reason why I wanted to learn how to ride. I don't know how many miles you have and how responsible you are, but after 6 months and 5000 miles, I decided to get a SS; 600rr in fact. So I can relate to you. It's been almost 2 years later, and I still ride my SV; I kept both. The RR is quite different from the SV. The feel of a Vtwin to inline4 are really different. There's no question that the rr is faster. What you really need is more practice, which isn't judged by time or mileage. I'm still learning; after 13k miles. The SV is a lot more forgiving, more comfortable, great for the city, long rides. The rr is faster, sharper handling, sexier, but also really uncomfortable for long rides. with sharper handling, it could be good and bad.. it's not as forgiving. some people say, just be easy on the throttle; throttle control. however, just remember that if you F up one time, you can be seriously injured or killed. As someone said, the two bikes serve different purposes. I think as long as you are ready, go for it... i may have just contradicted myself, but something tells me it may be premature for you. but again, i don't know you and don't know how you would actually handle the bike. my opinion is that you stick it out for a bit longer.. have you encountered an emergency braking/swerving/accelerating conditions yet? If so, how did you handle it with the bike?

thanks steve.. i don't post much on here, but i'm glad i made a contribution..sports bikes are cool, but they can also get one seriously hurt or killed.. i think too many people jump into bikes that they can't handle. i may get flammed for this, but i think 70% of the people on 1000s can't master a 600 and probably don't belong on a 1000. that's a whole other topic.. just my opinion.

thank you for ur input...i mean ive ridden my dads r6 and i realize that i need to take it alot more easy because the bike is not as forgiving.i have not really got into real danger but i have to to swerve out of the way of people who cant drive.and i agree with what all you guys are saying and i think that i should drive my bike for a little longer and learn some new things

Have you had the suspension on your current bike adjusted for your weight?

Well, you should swing buy Patrick's and have him take a look at for you. Having your suspension properly adjusted makes all the difference in the world and may (more then likely) bring a new excitement back into your bike. Also make sure you are running 36psi inthe front tire and 34psi in the rear. With the suspension set and keeping an eye on your tire pressure you should be able to get out there and really work on your body positioning, throttle control, braking and getting that bike on a rail through the corners.
