my 600 is more than enough for me for now. of course i weigh 145 soaking wet. im pretty sure its the 750 from here anyway. 1000 is more than i need.


Most supercars will outhandle a bike. We only have two little contact patches, whereas they have 4 big ones. Espeically with the tires that come on bikes from the factory.

And when it comes to handling, as mentioned by David above, most will drive the car better then a bike since driver input can be overlooked alot more on a car then on a bike.

Not to mention those 4 wide tires handle oil, tar snakes, gravel etc a lot better than the average bike tires do.

the day i almost looped my 2nd gear off throttle (no clutch) was the day i said ya i enjoy 1ks...

after i sold the duc i was using the r6 for freeway riding and i got sick of downshifting everytime i wanted to accel.

so when i got on the zx10r that 2nd day and was messing around and nailed it in 2nd around 60/70mph and it kept coming up i was good lord hah

1ks are fun but ya a bit unnecc... 600s are really what most ppl should ride for normal riding

Because I like buying tires...? No, thats not it... Because riding 2-up is a lot more fun on a 1k. Because the 1k is only about a grand more than a 600. Because once you've had one, you can't go back... Because a 600 is a ton of fun when you wind it up but a 1K is a ton of fun with a lot less effort and drama.

Most importantly to me, a literbike offers all the performance I can use without having to resort to loud exhausts that attract the attention of law enforcement and tend to pi55 off the local residents where I like to ride.

I've raced on 50, 500, 600, 650 and 750cc bikes and have had 200, 500, 650, 600 and 1000cc plus streetbikes and I can tell you that smaller bikes are more fun on the track and bigger bikes are more fun on the street. JMHO.

The opinion of the majority of the Moto crowd is that kilo class bikes (1000cc and above) will give you respect among your fellow Motorcycle riders. Only stuntas and racer wanna be's punk kids ride 600ss bikes.


Again, this is the consensus out on the street. You should ride whatever makes you confortable.

Rode 600s fa some years but at 6'2'' i alwayz felt it big for the bike and any kind of distance ride i was constantly streching my legs out and standing to get comfortable.

Almost stuck with a 600 this last time around but wanted the 1K for the comfort factor. Now that i've had my 1K for 8 months i couldn't see myself going back down to the 6. 1K is way more comfortable and much nicer riding on the freeway.

I will say though that i miss the weight of the 600 for diggin into corners.
