Supremely gripping essay, Killer. Thanks, keep them flowng...the excitement is palpable.

Someday I'l head there with my grandpop Blade and Bala and the boys. Lots to learn of course- you'll recognize me as the chap with clean shaven head, and jaw dropped somewhere near tarmac

How do you compare both the 600s?
Thats the thing i havent ridden the r6 yet but national champs like preetham confirm its better, anyways i'll try to get a ride before i form an opinion

@netchef: Thanks...if we're talking about the same red roosters Bala, he was there too. Hope to see you next time

Ram_Hyundai: I couldn't agree more, Sir. There's an eloquence and style to Killer's writing, and it is a pleasure to read him. Hope he writes more.

BTW Killer: what do those 'track' Suzis rev to? 17K RPM? Must sound good enough to release on CD. Some Red Roosters ride with straight through sawed-off shotgun, barely disguised metal cans...and they are the MOST Heavenly thing I've ever heard. Want one badly.

The one i rode displayed a 15k rpm redline, the 08 is 1000rpm higher. Its definetely not as much a screamer as the R6

Oh, didn't know the R6 was a screamer. Don't think I've seen or heard one...none in our gang.
