So after it sitting in the driveway taunting me since the bike show, I finally got to ride my bike today (just finished all but the last ride of PRS course last night).
Wow, the power of the 600 over the 250 is definitely evident. I was "ready" for it, but still, there was two or three times where the bike decided that rider was optional and I had to hold on tight (and I didn't break 80 except for the highway).
Almost dropped it once right after I started from a stop, but planted the leg and kept it up.
What a day for it though, but I only saw one other rider, and he was a cruiser.
