Like you guys said, the power covers up mistakes/imperfections. With the Duc, I found myself focusing much less on my cornering technique, for instance, when I knew I could pass just about any bike out there in the straits, if I wanted to. The 600 was more fulfilling, now that I look back on it. Plus it sounds like the GSXR would be cheaper to own and operate in the long run. I'm gonna go check it out tomorrow, and if it looks, good, I'll probably end up with the GSXR. May end up with a liter track bike one of these days, but I think this one would make a good starter. Thanks for all the advice
