#1 reason for me is that power is the least important factor on the track.
I'm really proud of my "less than liter" bike, so I should write an article of why no one should ever own one. FTW! :whocares:
So. You compare a 636 with a tl1000. You are aware that you could just as well compare a lamborghini countach with a gallardo? They are both supercars, they are both lamborghini, but thats about all they have incommon.For the every day rider or commuter who doesn't hit the track a liter bike is a waste of money. I think most guys buy liter bikes because they are thinking it makes them look cooler. I see more guys with chicken strips on their liter bikes than I do on 600's. You cant ride a liter bike like you stole it on the street. You cant get the traction with the amount of power they put down. The liter bikes are SOOOOO unforgiving too. I rode by buddies TLR1000 and that thing will power wheelie at any speed up to 100mph if you're not careful. You had to let the tires really warm up before getting on it because they would just spin between shifts until they got sticky. After one 4 hour ride I knew that I would never own anything bigger than my 636. It's all the bike I need.
Well, it's not that surprising. There are tons of people here who either have 1k bikes as a second bike, or are considering getting one. Personally I'd love to have an S1000RR (I think).opcorn:
Am I the only one finding this amusing......liter bike arguments on a 600 forum? :laugh
And I would love to have a new gen zx10r :sigh:Well, it's not that surprising. There are tons of people here who either have 1k bikes as a second bike, or are considering getting one. Personally I'd love to have an S1000RR (I think).
