which one u guys think is better?

i am looking at two bikes right now.
a 2000 r1 with 13000 miles on it.
or a 2004 cbr 600 with 16500 miles.

both are in very good condition and both asking 4000.

i really like the way the cbr looks, but will a 600 be too small for me?
i am about 200 lbs and 6' tall. wat u guys think?

I think that by your asking these questions you haven't bothered to read anything else on this site.

Neither one of those bikes are going to be big enough for you. You're going to need a 'Busa or ZX-14. Don't worry about buying gear either, you won't need it. Save some cash and buy a turbo, cause after a few months the bike won't be fast enough for you.

Just think what you want and decide if you want speed or just fun.

Well, our new friend has graced us with yet another helpful post in a dead thread. At least he's posting in threads from this year now.

Well, after the site change (selloff) traffic slowed down quite a bit, and then the major posters started dying off (going elsewhere, I presume) one by one. Now it's probably the least active forum I've ever been a member of.
