While this thread wouldn't have benefited from the "salt water" comment, it would have from the "Boss Hoss" instructions. There has been a paradigm shift and I wasn't notified.

Special case. He gets a pass for his 15 years of dirt riding.

Each year there is a major bike comparo in Europe called "MasterBike." 3 catagories of sport bikes are analyzed, including the 600cc's. This year, the Yamaha won. The 600cc sportbikes are extremely competitive, and the Big 4 are continually trading top spots. However, Honda and Yamaha have been beating Kawi and Suzuki regularly in most comparos recently. However, for a new street rider, the differences are virtually meaningless: you are not going to get anywhere near to utilizing the capability of any of these machines.

If you MUST have a 600 sportbike, I suggest the Suzuki. Why? Glad you asked! The Suzuki has a 3 level power selection that will allow you to tone down the power delivery. This might give you a slim chance of surviving your first 3 months of ownership, if you actually use it.
Maybe he's not a very good dirt rider and his handle indicates his visit to the dermatologist after each weekend's riding?
