Got rid of two this week and bought one!!

Sold my M4 FX bike since I will not be racing 600's anymore...It was painful. But after almost 12 years of racing...I think I am ready to be done with it. Done about all I could with racing and am not getting any faster!!

Sold my 2005 R1 also...Bought this bike...2007 CBR600RR. Will be a street bike (don;t ride much on the street but like to have in case) and a track day bike. The R1 was a bit much...This bike should be perfect...

Also, in case I crash this on a track day (shouldn't be!) it wouldn't be as painful as wrecking the M4!

Pardon the stupidity, but what is the m4 fx? I get that the M4 comes from the pipe. Fx from the race series? That just looks like a really nice race prepped gsx. Great looking bikes, both of them. What do you mean the r1 was a bit much? :)

The M4 was Mike Barnes 2005 actual race bike. The gas charged Ohlins front end (forks, brakes, triples) cost over $15K new...It is a full on superbike with a full data aquistion, Motec engine management, carbon fiber body, carbon self supporting tail, 130 HP motor, quick change wheels, etc.

The R1 was a fun street bike, but a bit much for track use. I ride 600's better...I don't know many that could ride a 1000 quickly on a track. Most go slower...Unless it's Daytona, etc.

Thanks! I really like the 600 so far...Only 13 miles though!
