Hello all, just joined the forum today and wanted to get some advice on a bike i'm looking at. Right now i'm thinking about trading in my 2011 Yamaha FZ8 in for a 06 Yamaha R1 with just over 8,000 miles on it and a $6995 price tag, is that a good price?. I've had my FZ8 for about a year now and ride as much as I can. Although the FZ8 is my first street bike, I have ridden dirt bikes off and on for 20+years, my last dirt bike was a honda 450, I know there is difference between the two. The question I had was would the R1 make a good everyday bike, I would use it mainly as a street bike, twisties, city riding, just cruising around on etc. maybe track days one day. I'm 5'8" 240 lbs fully geared up, would I need to have the suspension tuned to my weight? Also another bike i'm looking at beside the R1 is a k4 or newer Gixxer 750 or would the gixxer be better choice. Thanks for the feed back guys.
