one difference between the RR and R6 is the RR burns alot more gas when you get on it.

on one of our last rides we had an 03 RR, 04 RR, 04 R6, 05 R6 with a power commander, my 99 F4, and an F3. both RRs burned around $10 while the rest of us were between $7 and $7.50 at the first gas stop.

when your spending that little on gas it really should'nt matter if your spending $7 or $10

Buy all your gear first... THEN go to school and learn properly... THEN with whatever you have left, buy a bike.

a late 90's gixxer CBR R6 or even a ninja will be more than enough bike if your just learning.

We have a squid here in town that bought a brand new 04, R6. and could'nt afford gear.. he rips around wearing an old shitty second hand helmet, 1980's leather jacket and gloves. sporting jeans and skate shoes. he looks like a fucking loser riding a new bike.

it happens nearly every ride, even with more RRs and more R6s the RRs always get significantly worse gas milange than everyone else

Azn Angel..totally agree with your thoughts of advice. Altho do rem, you and I know these 'cuz we've done the rookie thing. Altho I didn't have good ppl like you giving me these advices when I first started, but I think I would've had to experience it before I know exactly what ur talking about.
Gear is first for'semost important. I crashed at 150km, when my front wheel didn't come down str8 from a wheely, and I regret nothing buying a shoei RF1000 for like $900. Only thing keeping here, (and possibly some supernatural force) to chat in this forum. Irish...he is right, U will drop the bike FOSHO!!! And you will do it when there are many ppl around seeing it! I've had both bikes...both '03.

my views - CBR600RR - heavier feel, steadier control, looks great, seat is hard as crap, trying to do a wheely is fuking even harder. (race designed so to keep u on the pavement.)
YamahaR6 - Easy as fuk to do a wheely, lighter steering (front wheel is thinner...check stats), seat is oh so cushiony nice, no gas level gauge, if it's blue...u must be a vietnamese (ahah).
Good luck riding!

I bought a 600 (05 RR) as my first bike, went through my first full season without dropping it once...as well, you could easily be in your third season with a nicer bike, rush a parking job or pulling out and drop your bike...although I agree that it is more likely to occur in your first season!

what I would urge you is to NOT GO CHEAP on lessons, I attended pacific and it was great ($600 + tax from what I recall).

I would argue that most ppl who purchase bikes want to look good amongst other reasons...anyone who sais otherwise is not being honest, so in that respect it is hard to try to convince someone to buy a used/old 250 or whatever...it was for me anyways...+ I'm not big on buying and selling to only re-buy what I originally wanted.

The key is to ride safe, not jump lanes, not ride in the bike lane or cut between cars, use what you learn such as lane position and defensive riding, not try the sea to sky following your first month, and practicing everyday, ride within ur means and so on...

check out bcsporbikes.com under the new riders forum for helpful tips.

For practice I recommend taking W. 4th to the UBC highway starting in May and back to experiment with comfort in relation to speed in your first few weeks, not much traffic as school is out except for summer classes, and nice long and open roads with little or no traffic (that is if you live on the W. side).

GSX-Rs are sexy, my buddy and I swap once in a while!!!

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned www.islandriders.ca yet. It's a very local community of most riders on the island, some from Vancouver, and so on. Once I joined, I almost forgot about revscene completely.

Anyway, what azn angel said couldn't be more true. It goes like this: gear, lessons, bike. I got fairly decent gear, good lessons (which I passed with almost flying colours) and an average conditioned Ninja 250, which I crashed my first day riding. You'll be glad you didn't go all-out on your first bike when you have a few tips and spills.

If you do some research you'll know that the 2007 600RR has been redesigned and I personally think it's the better bike between the two.

If you look at the date, you'd realize that Irish_R6 was not a fortune teller two years ago.

The new sport rider mag has a pretty good 600 shootout if you want to see just how good the RR really is. Seems like every magazine and internet article i've read lately puts the Honda on a pedestal for street ridability as well.

Personally I'd like to see my self master this little 125 and move up to a Gixxer 750 and get the best of both worlds. The 750 is also only $13k and most of the 600's are $12-12.5k.

That can easily be fixed with a power commander.....I got little more power on my CBR1000RR with the power commander and got 1.5L - 2L/100km better mileage.....Hondas just run pig rich from the factory.
