when i was looking to by my bike back in Jan. of 2001 i wanted this 2000 R1 with 2000 miles for sale that i could see from my bedroom. That week i saw my first 500 GP race on the tube and couldn't believe the way those guys manhandled those bikes... I started talking to every experenced sportbike rider i could find. I became very clear to me that unless i wanted to be on a first name basis with the ER doc a 600 was the way for me to go. After the factoring in the bang for the buck ratio, it was a done deal. I haven't regreted a moment of it. I won't lie i still like the big bore bikes, but Hugh Hef. said a man's reach should exceed his grasp.
