MSF course.
Check the sponsor links.

and most of the people on here are going to tell you that you have not been riding long enough for a 600 or a 1000.

If in one year we were able to ride the bike to its limitations then yes you are ready for a 1K. I seriously doubt you were able to out ride the 600. Being in 6th at red line does not mean you were out riding it either. Be honest with yourself, are you ready, do you really need one.
