Check out the bike rewiews in the bike magazines for July/Aug .. I got a lot of useful there.
BTW The most user friendly 600's are Kawasaki and Honda.

Cool

Welcome to SBW =) If you have your mind set on a new 600...go to the dealer and see which feels comfortable. They are all VERY similar in performance,so dont worry about which one is the fastest...

Just pick the bike that feels the most comfortable. Perf. wise you will never be able to tell any difference.

It's good to see a new rider that doesn't have to have a GSXR 1000, R1, CBR 929.

Talking I KNOW I KNOW!!!!!

Yamaha!!!!! R6! R6! R6!!!!!!!



Ok, so Chris has rubbed off on me. Like that's a bad thing.


Check out the August issue of Motor Cyclist mag. It does a good job on covering the pluses and minuse on the Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and the Kawi 600s. Also, go to the different dealers and find the one that is comfortable for you. They each put the rider in different riding positions. The new Suzuki had my back killing me in 5 minutes. Nice bike though.

Good luck and welcome.

(Oh AND there is an article in MC about my boy... ANTHONY GOBERT. WHAT A HOTTIE!!!!!)

Don't forget the 9R. Nice bike, but too much for a new rider.
