I am missing my 07 600rr already

We had been together for almost a year. For 6000+km i put on her, she showed me everything of what a 600 can do track or street, she took me to work everyday rain or shine and never complained. She had given me loads of confidence while riding her even when we were trying to ditch some nasty possible collisions for few times.

Shes cosmestically beautiful, blue and white who stands out from all hondas all the time with compliments, And she is mechanically beautiful too showing me how a serious engineered bike could do without being eletronically aided at all.

Now shes away from me, as some random kid showed up at my door offered me 10% more of what i bought her for.

I felt guilt.......

So i put down deposit for an BMW HP4, just because my next girl will be looking a bit like my old girl in terms of color :p

U are always in my heart my 600 girl

Truth right there.

Marquez is a hell of a rider. Rossi is a hell of a racer.

Its 30.9k rideaway for the base model. Price is just way too steep in AU RRP compare to US MSRP. but this is just the way it is in AU : /

Regarding the recall, Hopefully it wont happen to me but even if it is its dealer's problem : )

I will certainly stick around here more becoz i do find this 600rr forum to be the most informative to other bike forums. And i will for sure get another 07-12 600rr and make it track only when money allows!

In here its 25k for S1KRR, 30k for hp4 base and 35k for HP4 w/ comp pack. Price is rideaway price though With all on road costs.

I figured it should end up costing me less to paint wheels, buy carbon pieces, Then to make it look just like one with comp pack. And the best of all is i get to keep all the spare for sale or replacement :p

Phew that is a lot of dough indeed might as well get the model sitting on the bike to stop buy for a house tidy call service and may be a bike bikin wash as her visit bonus

Yeah I hear the prices for bikes in Aussie land are pretty steep but man, you got a sick bike coming you way I think its totally worth every penny I wouldn't worry about the recalls... I heard the RSV4 recalls were harsh because the dealership/ company support was terrible but don't know how they are now.
But please do post pics sooooo stoked for you!!!
