ANOTHERTHING THAT YOU MAY CONSIDER IS THE PRICE/AVAILIBLITY OF OEM PARTS AND AFTER MARKET. AND WILL YOUR DEALER OR FAVORITE SHOP BE NEAR YOU TO INCASE YOU NEED MAINTENACE. SOME BRANDS MAY COSTS MORE TO KEEP UP.

I was thinking the same thing. There is a Honda dealer about 2 miles away from work, so it's not bad.

I'm very lucky with that in mind. I have most brands closely available to me. And I use Motorcycles Unlimited for sevice which is fairly close to me as well. The Honda shops in my opinion are usually expensive. But I think they are reliable and good looking bikes. Well with the exception of the 1000. It looks like a !

Can't go wrong with the 03-07 CBR600RRs......I LOVE how they look in all black.....if I was gonna buy a 600 for a rider, I would prolly go for the CBR. Good all around bike that looks awesome.

Ride what texlurch rides (70+ ft/lbs stock). You'll save a ton-o-money on insurance too

Well the 03-06 blow, however the 07+ have the best midrange of any 600.

Hondas have been some of the more comfortable bikes I've ridden; and you can't beat the feeling of how light they are... Maybe its swing-arm mounted case or something but the fore/aft weight distribution seems to make the bike feel alot more balanced and lighter.

Of course I freak out on anything I sit on/ride where I don't have cadillac fairings around me

I sat on some ZX-6s and R6s and didnt like either one, very uncomfortable. Looks like it's gonna be a CBR or GSXR, most likely a CBR.

Whoa! That's a first!

R6 is the tallest sitting and forces you onto the tank (forward aggresive stance).

Honda & Suzuki force you to sit like turds, very comfy and laid back (latter more so).

Kawasaki would have to me aggressive aswell but not soo much as the R6.

I'm 6'4". I sat on the Ninja first, then drove an hour and sat on the R6 and Gix side by side. There may not have been any difference in the Gix and Ninja. I just know there was a HUGE difference between the R6 and Gix.

no amount of weird suspension configurations can offset the fact that honda seats suck . I've sat on more comfortable park benches.
