600 vs 1000

Do you prefer a 600 or a 1000 while riding the canyons and why?

Re: 600 vs 1000

Can't answer that since we dont have canyons here in Louisiana, but on the track I prefer my 600 over my R1. It is a lot less weight to fight after a long day on the track. Also, our local track is pretty short so a liter bike is not going to be use to it potential anyway.

Re: 600 vs 1000

No canyons here just some curvy roads and 2 hours from the mountains.

Tight and technical...R6

Long sweeping curves and straights...R1.

Re: 600 vs 1000

no canyons in Texas but figure smaller bikes will be easier to handle through the curves ..

Obviously you have not been to the hill country.

I definitely prefer the 600 on canyon roads and mountain roads that I have ridden in Texas and in Arizona. The bike is much easier to toss around and I am not as worried about spinning up the rear.

Blue because it is faster.

My 2 Cents

600 = Just turn and it will follow.
1000 = Convince it to agree with you, then turn, then hope it follows.
