Well i haven't been on here in forever that is cause i am outside deciding which bike to ride. Let me explain... my buddy left for the military and decided to let me hold on to his 2006 CBR 600rr while he was gone. He will be back to pick it up at the end of the year. The weight of the 600 and the explosive power off the line is crazy, but the top speed of the TL and the low end tourqe is amazing on the Tl. I have found that the 600 is very quick into the curves and easy to ride. I don't like the weight compared to the TL i feel like i am gonna break it when i slam it into a curve. But over all i think i am gonna get rid of the TL and go with something in between like a 06 gxsr 750.
