I'd like to know what it is with guys and "I want to have the most powerfull bike I can buy" I'm not just talking about newbie , I'm talking about experienced people too . I think that the bike industry is going crazy , people always want more power at the real wheel. I had a R1 for a little while and I didn't feel the use for all of that HP on the street at all. It's nice and all that the front wheel comes up at 160 km/h and that I could accelerate a bit faster than a 600 cc but come on it's getting ridiculous , where is it gonna stop...or will it ? I'd like to have your point of views on riding a 600 vs a 1000 ? What are the advantage in riding a big bore? Do you really have more fun doing the S2S on a 1000 compare to a 600 ?
Personaly I don't care much about power at the rear wheel , I care about handling , comfort and how nice my bike sounds.
