Cool R6 or Gixxer 600

Just want to get some talk rollin on the old board here.
I have always been a Huge Yamaha Fan and owner, Probably because of
King Kenny Roberts. Gixxers are cool but Every one in the world rides one.
Your thoughts

Exactly my thoughts. get a bike that fits you and feels good.
I just hate to see everyone going out and buying Gixxers cause they think that its the only way to go fast.

i bought my gixxer because if the way it looked and it was comfortable for me. dont listen to all the bullshit about gixxers breaking this or breaking that.

sheesh, one guys slams into a concrete barrier at 180mph and the frame breaks, all of a sudden ALL gixxer frames are defective.....:laughing6

ACTUALLY....there have been many that have crashed at lowspeed incidents(around 30-50mph....and the welds on the frame snapped.

i know that the frame breaking upon impact is not a good reputation to have, but if i go down, believe me when i say that im NOT going to be thinking "gee, i wonder how the frame's gonna hold up". nope nope, im gonna be thinking "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAA!!!"


...and probably myself.

my boss keeps trying to get me to buy a honda. i keep telling hime "why? my bike is faster AND can out maneuver yours".

of course, hes on a vfr, not an ss, lol. i personally couldnt care less which bike is better than whos. i bought mine because of hte way it looked, and teh way it felt when i sat on it. other than that, all 600s are the same to someone with lack of experience.
