  1. Hi. Are there any dealers that are open on the weekends. I cannot make it during the week and most of the main dealers seemed to be closed on weekends.....looking to buy my first 600 before christmas.




    I need to test a few bijes to see how i feel on them (im a tall bloke)

  4. You will pay top dollar at a dealer, they are good to look at to see what you like, but that's about it.

  5. Dunno where you're from mate, but most dealers would be open on a Saturday - sometimes only until lunch but that still gives you a fair bit of time.

  9. I'd go the cbr (i know you're not surprised) or the r6 over the gixxer as standard. I ride a gixxer6 at the track, but it's hardly standard and it costs dollars to get it there. I would however consider a gixxer750 as stock as a good compromise.

  10. Whats so bad about the gsxr?
    Ive been told by a few to just go for the r6 but ive always seen myself on the suzuki.

    Unfortunately the babyblades are a little uncomfortable for me. Not much difference between the 750 and 600...more high end torque...

  12. Mate, Peter Stevens website says they are open until 4pm Saturday.

    Peter Stevens Motorcycles - Melbourne

    From memory most are similar. If not the city then Ringwood also had PS plus others.

    Shouldn't be hard.

  13. Nothing mate, i've got an 07 that's a beast. But it's been a basic bike for years (stock) - which is why it's the cheapest track bike with no work done. The r6 is a peaky perky whole heap of fun above 7k rpm (but who wants to live in that zone 24/7?) and the cbr is a nicely refined blend of both - in my opinion.

    Whatever you choose it's got 2 wheels and you'll love it. Happy days.
