    hahaha, that silly kawi was supposed to eat everybody else for lunch! I guess I can go back to irrationally hating Kawasakis now

    Looks like the wild rumors about the 600RR were a bit off the mark though, as many of us expected them to be

    And the only GSXR in the top 20? #1 of course

    The guy on that GSXR must be riding the wheels off the thing... It's only a 4 year old platform

    Dead right, Mark. I'm just ribbin' ya.

    Actually, the bottom end is stock in those bikes, but there's tons of head work and (very important) an oversized radiator.

    The AMA bikes are very close to stock though.

    Ahhhh..I've been jazzing you all along!

    But if I were in the market for a 600..it would be tuff to pass up the RR....The R6 seems to be doing well too!

    Cheers!

    The R6 is a better bike in terms of sheer power and handling, but I don't think it will be reliable, time will tell.

    I still believe the R6 will take this year's 600 title.

    Yeah, unfortunately Honda have never made the lightest or sharpest 600 out there. CBR600's win tons of championships though, and I think that is due to reliability and rider consistency.

    But, in the big twin department, Honda rules (text addition, subliminal mode = on) RC51 for sale!!! (text remove, subliminal mode = off)
