I'm new to the forum, and looking to get back into motorcycles. I had a 92 FZR600 as a first bike for about three years and then got rid of it for fear of killing myself by doing stupid things like wheelies and excessive speeding. This was 3 years ago and I have matured greatly since then (hopefully!!!) I'm really taken by the R1 and thats about the limit on my prices as well. My friend has a Gixxer 750 and I ride it to ride, but I personally hate the bike. Im a huge Yahama fan, just like the bikes, always have. But I am open to suggestions. Thanks.
