Go hard or go home, right?

Either way, that's a very clean bike. Big fan of the previous generation RR's. Don't hooligan too much I think with self control I have no doubt that Taco will be okay. I hope you have all the appropriate gear, take my word for it when I say it's worth the while.

In the mean time.. I am looking into moving into an SV650 for the track...

As for the Axe vs Vice.. I've had a Protege since it was released, no problems here! Never used the Axe, though.

I don't really know why he thinks that the vice was bad... I really thought the protege was one of the best guns I'd ever fired, aside from a few well out of my price range. It certainly knocked the socks off of DM's.


Taco, be careful with that bike man... My neighboor has been riding motorcycles since he was 7 and says his scares the **** out of him from time to time. Its a great bike, but a LOT of power. He says its a bit of a fight to keep the front wheel down from time to time.

Couldn't pass on the deal. I was originally wanting a 650, then decided I would probably like a 600 better and probably keep it longer. Found a few 600 that were just ok, most were beat to hell or seemed shady on how it was really rode. Then ran into kid at field on sunday that said his dad was selling a bike, ended up making a offer and he took. Needs alittle work from setting around but price was right and with only 876 miles the thing is about as brand new as you can get on a used bike.

Bike is actually pretty tame under 4K rpm, but above that its a beast for sure.

I felt I have enough self control to not hurt myself, if I didn't I would of passed on it. Bought it to have fun, not to kill myself. Not really into going extremely fast, been there, done that, going to be used more for the curvy roads and track days. I was on dirtbikes for 3-4 years so I felt I would be ok since its not acutally my first bike, just first street bike, if it was first bike at all, no way. First time riders make to many mistakes with the controls and you could easily hurt yourself REALLY quick on this thing.

Although I will say 165hp bike that only weighs 468lbs wet is alittle different then 40 or so hp my old dirtbike put out lol.

I am good on gear, actually went out and bought all that first. Got nice (pronounced: expensive) helmet, gloves, boots and a jacket. Guy threw in a honda full leather racing jacket with the bike to so now I got that for winter/track riding.

I have always found bikes to be cool as hell when driven appropriately. BUT I know that I am too much of a scaredy cat to drive one even if it looks like alot of fun. It's one of those things where I wish my balls hung lower for.

Rode my cousins R6 for the first time on christmas. Even that bike was a blast to ride. Coming from a dirt bike background as well, I can say that the biggest change for me on it was turning the bike. It just felt different to HAVE to lean to turn the bike, easy to do, just different. Couldn't believe how quick the R6 was as well. Hitting 90 in just under seconds is not only fun as **** on it, but just plain silly how fast you go through the gears.
