Just bought brand new have 58 miles on her so far 馃槆 I鈥檝e been riding often on since I was 18 I am now 51. I鈥檝e always thought about taking the leap but I heard they鈥檙e so unforgiving and so much unusable power I鈥檝e also seen a lot of people moved to a liter bike bike and then move back down to a 600. It truly is a completely whole different fucking world. I don鈥檛 think I could ever go back now that I have moved up honestly I never mastered my 600 this bike is way above and beyond me. Sad to say I laid it down a couple days ago was only 58 miles on it coming into a corner too hot but I don鈥檛 think it鈥檚 because it鈥檚 too much Bike for me (which it is 馃槀) but it鈥檚 because my riding skills are not up to par ! I am just self-taught I have never taken any kind of training watched any videos etc. I鈥檓 changing this now I just got twist of the wrist and I鈥檓 going to start doing some reading and watching some YouTube videos and a lot of people have suggested to me a track day ! Anyhoozer I sold my ZX6r and I haven鈥檛 checked in here for fuck I don鈥檛 know maybe a decade or some shit miss you guys 馃槆

So you threw your ZX6R down the road enough to buy something else and immediately threw it down the road too......

gee sounds just like what I would expect from you... I expect you are still riding past kids at high speed doing dank whoolies and hitting curbs too

Nice ride. Seriously considering getting one myself next. But I鈥檒l keep the 6R too. It would be this one too. Black R1 with the new body style. (y) So it really is much faster eh? Lol

I was going to call BS when I saw no CAPSLOCK. Congrats man. Go do California Superbike School for real. You owe it to yourself. It will stop you spending money on modifying (or upgrading bikes) because you should realise that the rider can be upgraded infinitely...

Shit bro all these sportbikes are WAY beyond me !!! I can tell you squirrelly and unforgiving is really good terminology ! fucking bike wants out from underneath me I am 155 pounds I have never had a bike in my life including my sixes I have had to respect and I have them completely modded without getting into the engine (my zx6r鈥檚 I mean ) I honestly just have never had to respect one I just smashed through all the gears this thing is so so so different if I even breathe on the throttle wrong this fucker is trying to shoot to the moon 馃挴馃挴馃挴 ITS A TRIP AND I COULD NEVER GO BACK TO A 6 PERIOD !!!!! The cross plane engine has a crazy sound I just wanted a $3700.00Austin Racingfull exhaust with ceramic coated pipe work including headers is being hand fabricated in great Britain I ordered it on October 31 so now I am just patiently waiting !!!!!
