here is your checklist

1. turn off caps lock.
2. stop typing in exclamations.
3. be sure you have *all* gear for serious riding.
4. go through more than your first ever set of tires.
5. start riding more than 500 miles a month.
6. put another 6k miles on your bike, at least.
7. take course, MSF, ridesmart, anything youll learn stuff.
8. cut your chicken strips in half.
9. do a trackday, get opinions of people there, not at pp1.
10. do all this without hurting you or your bike.

...then maybe trade it in for the 750.

I agree with the list

I haven't done a track day...but I did everything else. A little wreck on my r6 gave me a big reality check. Buying a bike on cosmetics isn't always a bad thing, I did it for my 1000, but I realize I can't use half of my bikes potential on the street....

stick with the 600. with experience, you can whoop some people on literbikes (1000's). the literbikes are less forgiving, one mistake on the throttle, and your is rashed. plus 600's are more fun to play with.

i have a 600 and a 1000....i have way more fun on the 600.

Keep the 600 if you want to live...

Nah, just talkin like Arnold but I would really stick with the 600 in your position. Out some miles on that 600 and then think about it.

+1 I agree with the others. I've had a 600, a 1000, a 650, 750, and now a 450 and out of all of them i am learning the most on the 650 and 450. That's right, i've got at least 50K miles under my belt and am still learning. It takes time. Definitely get with someone about getting out to a track day. You don't need exhaust or a power commander, or anything like that. Get gear, experience, and learn how to dodge the crazies on houston highways!
just my $.02

Keep the 600 and learn the trade. The 600's are alot easier and will be more forgiving then the liter bikes. Get the gear so that when you go down you stand a better chance of surviving.

Keep the 600. I got my first ever street bike in December too, but it was used. I've since put 6000 miles on it, and I know I'm still too noobish to get a 1000.

Good advice all around.

3153 miles is nothing, your right you are still a noob. All you need is number 8 and 12 from below. Much cheaper and you will get some poser points. :laughing6
