new bike plans

ok, the people on here seem to know what there talking about, so im open for suggestions, im 17, 18 in 5 months, and ive been riding since i was 14, right now i have a FZ1, and its getting old, so i drove my friends 05' cbr600, around a walmart parking lot, im not a stupid kid, and i havent even came close to an accident,..ever. i rode this bike and i am IN LOVE and i want it reeally bad, and he said i can buy it for a very low price, i am totally confortable riding it, is this smart, owning two bikes, and jumping from a fz1 to a cbr600? my insurance is 100 a month if it helps with anything, just in case owning 2 bikes affects your insurance

How is it your 17 and can own two bikes? Do you not have plans for the future (education?)

The reason you like it is because you did not hit the powerband while in the parking lot...... An FZ1 to an RR is not that big of a jump, so I guess I cant grill you on that.... as long as you have owned this fz1 for a while now and your not bsing like other people on this forum!

no bs, it just gets old, and not for a while, its brand new, just not what i was looking for, not enough get up, and im going to a near-by community college for two years, and then going into the marines, and "bsing people" are pretty much defined by DeanMckaneR6 lol, i owned him on his first thread

I'm a little confused here. Your FZ1 should have more power everywhere in the powerband than the 600RR. The FZ1 has a serious motor in it, its just a detuned version of the old R1 motor if I remmeber correctly.

I just don't understand how you'd notice more get up on the CBR, especially in a parking lot where the RPM's aren't getting near that CBR's sweet spot.

So your buying a CBR just because it looks better than your current bike...interesting...
Im not gonna judge you for your decision...but some people just have toooo much money...
Why don't you donate to the "Buy Firefox a bike foundation" ?

If you want it, go for it; you seem to have a pretty level-head.

However, just make sure you have all your gear first. Two bikes with no riding gear is a definite NO NO
