yeah, i was in the same boat, very glad i went with the 1000hey whats up it's my first post on here. I got my first litre bike bout 2 weeks ago. Already done the fender eliminator yesterday because it was buggin the hell out of me. I haven't rode for a few years but got spring fever and I haven't turned back since. I had a 99 gsx 600 and man am I glad I didn't go to the zx6r.
