Well, I've had my 01' GSX-R600 for a month now. "Chicken Strips" are gone and I ride every day. I wanted to get at least a 900 to start, but I read everyone's "first bike" posts and ended up getting a 600 to start. I loved it at first and was amazed how quik it was for a "600". It's "always" fun and enjoyable to ride, but I just want more POWER. I am usually a fast learner, but I just didn't think I would want a bigger bike this soon..........Am I the only one? Any thoughts???????
