i'm sure there's something you can cut out of the house to save you $2k, like a couple windows and doors maybe , jk. but keep looking i'm sure you'll find something.

Thanks. I do have a couple of people that will help me. I just like to see what thoughts other people have. There are so many diff. points that can be brought up that one person may overlook. I didn't even think about the wieght of that bike but, since someone mentioned that to me and I looked it up, it's way too heavy so now the bike is out. So you see, mass inquiries can be super helpful.

How about getting some more miles before "upgrading" and do a track day as well.

I sound like a broken record :/:

I have a mind set. I wanna upgrade while I have the money, that way I don't have to go without a bike until I find one. This way, if I find one that I want, I can buy it and sell mine at the same time with no worries.

More miles could never hurt but it's only upgrading 100 cc, not enough difference to be dangerous imo.

Allot of people start off with 600's like I did so any experience is better than none.

Trust me the 600RR is a sweet ride. Light, quick and very easy too maintain.

wow....ignorant comment of the century...

ok first, yeah, it's only 100 more cc's, but it's also 2 more cylinders, more than twice the power, twice the torque, and less weight. the difference is much more than you're trying to make it out to be.

and a lot of people that start out with 600's also don't live long enough to realize their mistake. just because YOU did it, doesn't mean it's the right decision for someone else.

but i've preached this too many times already...get what you want, you and your loved ones are the one's that will have to live with it, if it's the wrong choice.

Oh at first I was surprised then I saw your a HD rider, thats the problem.

In the post i specifically said in my opinion. The 600RR is a great starter bike and she is ahead of most riders in that she already has been riding.

Stop crying and get back to the cruiser threads!
