"traitor" sorry can't correct spelling on titles.
Its TRUE - i'm selling my 04 gix 600 race bike now for $3k since i picked up a wrecked 06 r6 for $2k and put another $2k into it and now its pimp.
But.. yes i've left the 04/05 world and got a R6. I still have and race the 06 gix 1k though. So I haven't completly left.
These yama's are pretty sick though. And if any of you haven't used a slipper clutch just wait till you upgrade to an 07 or 08 gixxer or anything since most bikes all come with slippers now.
