Don't listen to these jokers. That MSF stuff is over rated and, lets face it, most of these guys just Scotchbright their chickenstrips off anyways. As far as gear..that stuff only works when you crash and when is the last time that happened to ya? But really,why limit your self. As far as experience, you have practically ridden the equlivant of a trip from Chicago to L.A. after 3500 miles. How much more experience do you need? You should be looking to the Hybusa as your next bike. Your helmet will look quite stylish attached to the tail as you roll through Starbucks. Chicks dig that.

I agreed with what he said but don't get the busa, sticks with a zx10 or gsxr1k. Faster and lighter. Do it soon cause I need some parts.

Wha??? Nothing is faster than the busa. It IS the fastest. Your're not allowed to wear gear on those things from what I can tell. No gear equals less weight. Don't those things go like 250mph from the factory?

I could be wrong here but I think the gsxr line up are all the same size or very close as far as the length and width.

is that muscle mass you're talking or excess weight? If it is excess weight, lose it and you could be as fast a slow/new rider on a 1k.

Listen to the peeps here, they know thier stuff. Your high school buddies don't know and it will get you hurt. Learn on the 600 and move up later in life. The 600 puts all the power down that any one needs on the road. If you feel too big on then gixxer then get a harley.
