My landlords nephew that lives 2 doors down the street has a 01 1k blue and white with white wheels that's pretty clean. neighbor a few houses in the other direction has a 03 Telefonica scheme 600 that looks brand new (other than the lowering links).

That could very well be possible on a tight technical track, especially if the rider jusrt happened to be used ot a 600 more than a 1k. Corners are a great equalizer, that has almost nothing to do with power.

Congrats on beautiful bike Red

On the note of a 600 being as powerful as a 1k... Wow.

You said a 600 can be made as powerful as a 1k, backpedalling will do you no good...

Well what I meant to say was just as fast not powerful, but still I don't see a point in a 1000 when can you leagaly use all that power that you can't do with a 600.
