btw i felt lots faster on my R6 than my RC, twisties. and i agree the bikes doesnt matter.... i spanked a guy on a zx9 with my yz80 powered ysr over 15 miles of twisty canyon road... if you cant carry the speed through the corners... then you have too much bike.
I know some guys like the ones you are talking about that "talk smack" all day about how fast their bikes are.. Funny thing is not one of them can ride worth a damn.. Any idiot can get on the highway and turn the throttle..

You and me both man. Some of the idiots I know lip off about how fast their bike is etc etc etc.... "Hmmmm why are the lil rubber titties still on the outter 2/3rd of your tire dude?" LOL... Usually get the " OH but I'll smoke you 1/4 mile" ....which none of em have the balls to pin the throttle to the stops anyway(I do, on the strip LOL).....which brings us to the fact that they cant ride... Take em out to a few local twisty roads, and I end up having to wait for them at each stop sign. Im by no means fast (IMO) But damn dog, lean that bike over...the tires will hold !
speaking of 1/4 mile... the track phuckers wouldnt let me run my ysr.... it had to be good for atleast mid 12's.... its amazing the looks you get out getting squidly passing cars on the freeway on 1/2 a bike. still kicking myself for selling it.... way more fun than any fullsize trackbike... a hell of a lot cheaper too.
my last bike was a gsxr 750 actually - id say its a tossup. the rc will definately get you off the line quicker but once the gsxr does finally get up over the 10k line you'd better be hanging on damn good and tight. but who the hell wants to race a quarter mile at a time - lame.
