well since the new models are out jet you may want to think about selling asap if you are. they are about to start giving the first new generation R6's away. but they gave me 6500. but i did have all the aftermarket stuff on it.

well honestly i don't have enough seat time in it yet. BUT! from the 50 miles i put on it yesterday there is a Huge Difference. The power is definately quite noticeable, yet being a bigger bike i feel more agile on it. Reason being i don't feel like i'm on top of the bike like i was on the r6, (aka a monkey f******* a football feeling) The seating style is not as aggressive as the r6. i will give more feedback later tonight i'm going to put some more miles on it today and will report later.

cool; one reason why we like the litre bikes; more comfortable position; then if you need to get aggressive can always sit back in the seat further...

I was curious going from the younger bro to the 1k; Im use to a heavier bike and anytime I ride a 600 and can see so much ground around me it feels like I'm flyin... Yamahas are very streamline so I was figuring the r1 would almost be the same size as the R6, w/ as u mentioned, a more sit-up position to cover the engine and reset the weight distribution...

also i'm 6'1 and weigh 250.. and that r6 would get me around pretty good. but the R1 will take some getting used to again. but i will def. go into more detail later.
