    It's not uncommon for more experienced riders to realise that middleweights are often more fun to ride than big bikes that nobody can use. Enjoy your new bike

    I miss my 600, too, so can relate. Sorta.

    Enjoy the new ride, Mrs Weeksy.

    I know the latest 600's and Thous' are much removed from the bikes of 20 years ago, but...

    I reckoned I was faster point-to-point on the road and lapping Cadwell faster on my R6 (1999) than I ever have on my Fireblade (199.

    The Blade pulls far easier wheelies tho'

    I thought that in some ways, because it feels like you're quicker... The reality was, i was a fair bit quicker (10-12s) a lap on my 848 than i am on my 690 at Silverstone. Not sure it matters because that's so far removed for me as to why i own the 690... But the faster bike on that occasion was quicker.

    For Mrs Weeksy, it's not down to which is quickest either, it's simply down to which she feels most comfortable on.. That seems to be the ZX6

    At least I haven't got to make fork spacers for this one.

    And Reading to Blackpool and back? A pleasant half days drive.

    How will a dull plain blue bike fit in with the Fisher Price KTM ?
