I've recently sold my r6, and now in the market for a replacement. I want to stay in the 600cc class but have been considering a new gix750 or 1000cc bike. basically for a lower price i could have a 05ish litre bike over a new 07 gix750,and even some 05-07's 600's for that matter
my question is how was the transition for those of you that made that leap. For some reason I'm a little hesitant moving up to a bike that has that much power. I consider myself an OK rider (well compared to some of you hooligans out there), I ride within my limits, but i don't think I ever outrode the levels of my r6, hence me consideration of a 750 would be perfect (i had an older zx7 before but thats like apples and oranges).
So what are the pros and cons of moving up the class? Also do you think because its more likely a "mature" rider would have a litre bike, means that it was more well taken care of?
TIA for the input!
