...and I've enjoyed the majority of them. The only ones I didn't enjoy were the ones where I went riding on some of my favorite roads only to find the roads covered with enough sand that I thought I was at the beach. :cursin: Other than that (which has nothing to do with the bike itself), I love this bike and feel like I made a good choice. Sure it has it's minor issues, but they are issues that can be solved with a power commander and a bit of time in the saddle and suspension tweaking.

I'll be taking the bike to the track this weekend so I'll give you a full report after I get back. I had initially signed up for the beginner group with STT because I hadn't had the bike very long when I signed up and I wasn't used to it yet. Now I'm comfortable with the bike so I will probably try to move up to intermediate if they have room. I'll still ride beginner the first couple sessions of the first day, but hopefully I can move up fairly early. Of course, that depends on openings in the group.

Anyway, I'm glad to finally have 1000 miles on the 6. I thought I'd never reach that point the way weather was acting. :lol:

I think I really started hammering it around the 750 point. But now that it's at 1K, I have NO reservations/feelings of guilt for hammering on it. I wanted to have it at 1K before taking it to the track. Now I can ride hard all day at the track and not worry about warranty, etc. It's past 1K, so they can't say I hammered it too hard by taking it to the track. :D

Why would you bang it off the limiter? You are losing speed at that point - if you look at the dyno report the peak hp is around 12,5. When I went to the track this past weekend I hit 14k a couple of times but a quick shift fixed that - I was too busy thinking about setting up for the corner and late shifting.. But banging it off the limiter doesn't accomplish anything except losing momentum..

Cap'n - you will absolutely LOVE that bike at the track - that is what it is made for..

Congrats on the fact you can hammer the throttle back now! Watch how fast the next 1000 get put on it.

Captain, are you really going to take your pride and joy to the track? I would get a beater bike for that. Did you see the new issue of Cycle World? R6 won the 600 shootout.
