Default CBR f4i or GSX-R600???

I'm going to go get one of these tomorrow. the gsxr looks like a better deal but i'm a honda guy. btw I can get the gsxr for $2750 and the cbr for $3000. gsxr has a dent in the gas tank and the cbr has scratches on both sides and missing a mirror. your thoughts?

That's really a personal choice. The GSXR is slightly newer and has some upgraded things like suspension. That's about the only benefit it has over the F4i. Most people here will say F4i for biased reasons, and because the general public's (stupid) assumption is that GSXR riders are douchebags.

Got to agree with Aken here. I think it comes down to what color scheme you like better. The GSXR has slightly less miles and is 3 years newer but are being known for douches. I mean just look at the guy in the pic with his wifebeater and shorts on.

F4i.

If the gsxr was newer id go for it, but I believe the f4i is a bit faster.. I know this by experience. And more comfortable.

The F4i

I still suffer nightmares seeing yellow bikes after the pain my F3's chitty paintjob caused
