my bike weighs more then your RC and a GSXR1k, doesn;t effect my riding....../shrug

your RC was running top of it's class till the cbr1000rr came out, so does it really matter what your bike weighs?

are you gonna be somehow magically faster w/ less weight? theoretically YES......actually.....prolly NO.

don't sweat the petty, pet the sweaty.

Personaly, I like a heavier bike and although I'm certainly not fast at the track I noticed that I could hang with most people through the corners but they would get away from me on the straights. But that is the dif between 118-120 hp and 150-170 hp................and nerve of course.
