Just wanna start by saying hello to every... Now I have two weeks to decided if I wanna buy a 2006 or 2007 cbr 1000rr just looking on some insight from people who own these kinda bikes. I'm not new to the cbr I had the 600 but sold it because the wife got pregnant. But now ready to step up to bigger n better any insight will be helpful. Thanks in advance

Why those particular years? Starting with the 2008, Honda did a complete makeover of the 1000RR. Smaller, lighter and faster...just like the MiGS.

Not sure cause I'm tall 6,4 but it's a light bike so should have no issue handling it on one foot
