If you haven't been to the track, buy a 600.

Confused on how "track time" equates to overall rider skill?

I agree time on the track "may" help you to explore your bikes limits more, but it is not the "end all" of riding experience for everyone.


IMHO.. :icon_bigg

There are many street riders think that they are bad and can haul but when on the track, they will see it differently.

There are 10x as many that don't have to haul to enjoy their bikes.

I've also met track riders that don't have to "street skills" to ride on the roads, with all the various inputs and distractions and no braking markers.


And if you want to learn some bike handling skills, try getting on a trials bike sometime.


But to get this thread back on topic, let us know which sport bike you end up with.

Get the 1K. If you plan on doing any long rides, the engine will be much smoother and more versitile. The 600 will wear you out after a while

Is this true or just a myth?

Except that a few of them have been burning oil and the suspension is not the greatest. The motor is excellent however. BTW nice statement in your avatar, Clear Lake Kawi does really blow
