Well, hopefully this thread will still be around then, I will probably be coming to you all to convince me not to buy a 600. Hopefully I won't lack the common sense I have now...
I raced for three seasons in the middle class division. I learned hot to drift a sport bike riding enduro.
If you have access to dirt?, you should consider a small displacement dirt bike to learn with.
