Not looking to start an arguement but I just want to know why someone who has alot of riding experience would pick a 600 over a 1000 or vice versa. These bikes wont be touching the track except maybe once. I personally think the 600 (all makes) is more then enough bike for street riding. Cost wise the 6 is cheaper, insurance the 6 is cheaper. Im pro 600 and think a litre bike is a waste of money for just street riding. What are your thoughts? If you were deciding between the two what made you choose the one over the other.
