Hey guys. So I'm pretty sure this summer I'll be getting an 08 600RR new. There's a dealer near me that still has a couple. After reading the comparison on the front page I don't really want an 09. I'm not really new to forums as I have an 09 Rally Yellow Chevy Cobalt SS and am on the related forums all the time. I got on those about 2 months before I got my car so I'll be around here a bit doing the same thing most likely.

Thanks man. I've been around this kinda stuff most of my life so I'm not a total newb. I grew up riding a CR80 then moved up to a CR125. After that I jumped over to 4 wheels and started racing a 400EX. I have ridden several street bikes so it won't be too big of a deal switching to street, but I really wanna get back on 2 wheels. My stepdad has an 03 954RR but he wont let me ride it til I get my license and wont let me use it to get my license so I'm at a standstill til I get my own ride.

It was pretty fun. I lived on a farm so we had our own custom built MX track right next to our house. It had tight whoops, tall whoops that were more like doubles, a 60ft tabletop, 30ishft doubles and a few other fun things. It was definitely a way to kill time between checking cows and doing homework.

The motorcycle.com 600cc comparison ranked the CBR 3rd. The first time in years that it hasn't won in it's class. It dropped from 105hp to 97hp too.
