Ok. So I'm thinkin I might wait till i'm off my restriction in feb next year and get a 600 sports bike, (most likely an R6). How much will I be shocked by the difference in power? I don't want a bike that i'm going to be fearing for my life on. How much do you think i'll be looking at insurance for a bike like that being a rating 6. I'm thinking maybe 1,500 - 2,000/ year for insurance. although the RACV quoted $7000/year for the insurance. I was riding a vt250f for 6 months and loved the torque and reponse compared to friends cbr's. Is this a bad idea? Please help!!!
