First off welcome to TWF.

Now as far as get a used bike you can do that anywhere, Your actually looking for 2 specific models that will get tough. If you got the doe to spend I say serch the web and ship it to ya. We have seen it happen right here From one member to another. Good luck, Come back and for Pete's sake post uo some dang pictures when you get it. L8r

moe stick around

Is this your first bike you are looking to purchase?

Both bikes are very compariable. I went with a Yami R1 that's featured on the front page of the TWF as April bike of the month, but I would be just as happy with a new gixxer.

I think you should go with a 600 man. I just got my R1 and it nuts. I am VERY experienced as well. To be on the safe side...go with a newer 600 dude.

Yeah... well we must all remember that todays 600's are sick fast! Just as fast as a 1100cc from the early 90's but with a much much much better suspension!
