    Two of my favorites. The double R is super fast and easy to ride wheelies. Id go for what you want and be careful either way. Two types of riders.......ones that have wrecked and those that will wreck. Practice safety.

    I owned a Gixxer 1000 for over a decade before I sold it and I swear to God it ran on Plutonium not gasoline.

    Lol!
    You can always tell in a bike thread where someone is from when you see references to wheelies. I was in Pascagoula, Mississippi for about six months in 1986 and owned a '85 900 Ninja which I rode out from San Diego.
    All those local sport bike boys could wheelie their asses off but couldn't corner their bikes if their lives depended on it.
    I still can't ride a wheelie. Not on purpose, anyway.

    LowT, I grew up in Southern Ohio and there are plenty of good, knee dragging roads there. North of Columbus I bet there are plenty of "wheelie kings".
    You do have a bitchin' race track though. And KTM has a "fly and ride" program where you can pay a few hundred bucks and spend the day ripping the track on an RC8. Pay a bit more for insurance and you can test torque and grip "no fault".

    Right on! Deals Gap NC and Chief Joseph highway Wyoming, some knee scrappers. Left the Harley at home when I went out West and took the RR. All my friends were on cruisers and want to swap bikes when the fun started on the switchbacks.

    If your set on a large cc sport bike get a Yamaha R1, they are the only inline 4cyl that has a cross plane crankshaft vs strait plane. The torque curve shits on all others. And with a aftermarket exhaust you will stand out to everyone else.

    If you can't ride a Ninja 300 at its limit, you will immediately be in over your head on any liter bike.
    Unless you can be mindful and keep your wits about you.

    All reall cool things to have.

    I'm partial to the KTM SuperDuke 1290. You will never grow out of that bike. If you ever actually grow INTO it.
    There is something so incredibly bad ass about a twin. I raced a SuperDuke 990 and although out classed most of the time, it was the most fun I've ever had on a bike. And I've been riding since I was 5.
    The fit and finish quality is unparalleled.

    Take the MSF advanced rider course AS SOON AS YOU GET THE BIKE!
    Worth every penny. Totally legit program.
    I was looking at the r1 and possibly the gsx 100r and I've looked into the riding modes and traction control and that makes me more comfortable. My boy races and rides an r6 and said if I'm not doing much freeway riding a 600 would be plenty plus I can always mod the gears and some other little changes.

    I agree with your friend. I would never want anything less than a liter bike now for the street. It's more enjoyable, less vibration, tons of low end torque, way more fitting for longer rides.
    And... I am nowhere near out riding my 600rr on the track. No way do I need a liter bike or could use it to its full potential on a track.

    Biggest mistake that I've made in recent history was walking into a Suzuki dealership dead set on buying a GSX-R1000 and walking out with a Boulevard M109R. Still kicking myself because now I'm stuck with the Boulevard. I've tried selling it on several different occasions over the past couple years. No one wants it and I refuse to take a beating on the price so it just sits in my garage.
