Movin' on up!

Hey gang,

After attending IMS to help me decide between the 500R and the 600RR, I decided to pick up a 2011 600RR, new out of the shipping crate, red & black. Got a sweet deal on it so I couldn't pass it up. :)

It was tough parting with my 250, but I'm not a 2-bike guy, at least not yet. I had some awesome times on that bike and I hope it ends up in a really good place.

Thanks for all the knowledge & discussions. I'll keep my account open here and stop by now & then.

Take care!

Having plans to get the new CBR600RRA and having sat on all the others at the show (675R, R6, ZX6R, GSX-R600/700) I found the CBR600RR to feel damned near perfect, even moreso than the 250...then again I've never been fond of sitting upright as it feels weird to me (coming from bicycles before getting into riding). Very often, even on long rides (3-4+ hrs) on the 250, I'm constantly putting my butt to the back of the seat, knees into the tank, and trying to get lower but the bike always seems too 'small' to do so constantly.

I'm also 5'8" with a 30" inseem, so I also can't flat foot any of the 600s, but the CBR600RRA and GSX-Rs were the only ones I could come close. The GSXRs seemed to also have a wider tank at my knees, which I didn't care for compared to the CBR. And the CBR is the only one of the three which has ABS.
