I've never test ridden an R1 yet and am thinking of trying it at a local test ride event in a few weeks. Absolutely love the way the R1 looks and sounds. But, it looks really wide and seems kinda long. I feel comfortable with the predictable and easy way the R6 handles. My only gripes are that I sometimes wish it didn't need to be at such high RPMs to get moving. And, I sometimes wish it didn't buzz so much past 10K rpm. But, I guess that's just how the bike is designed. I do like that the throttle calms so immediately, and I love how light it corners. I'm 5'6" 147lbs, so I feel like the R6 is the right physical size. I wonder if an R1 will look too big for me?
