Finally decided to pull the trigger and buy myself the bike I've always wanted when I began riding. A 2002 600. Blue and white color scheme. I've always liked the 01-03 styling. I've been riding for 16 years on and off. Rode a 93 Honda XR600 for a year before the Gixxer. I rode it home from San Jose over highway 17 Saturday morning. I was white knuckled and puckerd the entire ride. Had to keep telling myself to relax and go the speed limit. Ha ha. Going to keep it around my neighborhood until I get more confident on it.
