I have been noticing the lack of 600 threads lately. Most likely its because 600 owners have got their bikes built to their perfection, and they keep on running-ergo-nothing to post about... Proportionately, 650R owners continue to post, because no power gain is too small to talk about, considering the tank-like weight of the 650. Yes-this was written to get you riled. SEPARATE THE FRIGGIN' FORUM NOW!
