06/07 sized a little more appropriately for the power and smoother powerband (more street rider-friendly)

Its going on 2 Years riding. Rode a Nighthawk 250 for a few months before I got the ZZR. I've ridden my friends GSXR600 and I like it but I want something with a bit more power. I was looking into the 08 for the ZX10 and 06-08 for the 750.

I sat on both and the GSXR feels a bit lower but as far as comfort they both felt good. I couldn't say that one feels more comfortable than the other. Anyone have 08 ZX10R or 750 I can ride?

my zx10 hits 107 in 1st at rev limiter.
it will do power wheelies no problem.
ive sat on the 08 zx10r and they fill lighter than the previous years. i think they hid the weight better. but i love the way they feel.

Insurance is about the same, I found 2 dealers going 10.5 for the ZX10R and about 10 for the 750. I'm gonna go ahead and go with the 10R, but I'm gonna wait a bit more and see if I can get a better deal.
