Tough Buying Decision Made Tougher

Alright, I got a problem. It's an age-old battle between a man's two heads. I got a large (what happens when a male sees a pretty woman -- ed) for a Ducati 748 R, but my (brain) is telling me stick to a Yamaha R6 for price and speed.

Woe is me! Yes the Ducati is a stretch in the wallet, but man.......look at it. It's like that pouty model chick that takes a lot more effort to nail...

and who might not be quite as good as your old girlfriend, but it's a badge of honor. You tell you're friends, "see that hot model chick? I (expletive deleted -- ed) her." And your friends oohh and aahhh and give you a pat on the back and you feel like the man.

I know that, performance-wise, the Yamaha beats the snot out of the Ducati, and might be more fun to ride overall, but will I be able to get the Ducati out of my head if I settle in with the R6? I don't want to commit if I have another bike on the brain.

I've had two Honda CBR600s so far, and while fun and reliable, they don't give me enough, I dunno, oomph. They're boring to me. What the hell do I do?

Should I get the Ducati and beef up the HP or just shut up and get the R6.
