Cautious, experienced rider, rusty from nearly 20 years of no motorsycle ownership. Rode regulary for most of my 20s, now looking to get back into sport bikes, previous rides were '75 CB400F, RZ500, and FZ-750.
I went and looked at sport touring bikes, but couldn't stand the upright seating positions. So now I'm thinking sportbikes. I looked at some 600s, R6, CBR6004FI, but they seem too small.
I looked at some "new" 2005 gixxers, a 750 and 1000, frankly, the performance of either bike is frightening, but, as with my 750 of old, I'm sure some miles behind me will get me focused far enough down the road, and soon, the higher, and slowly the lower gears won't feel so fast.
All that said, with the price difference being small enough so as not to matter, which would you get, and why. 750 or 1000?
