|Anyways, to respond to some of the replies: yes insurance is that bad for any 1000. I've called and done lots of online quotes. Any SS1000 is a nightmare. FZ1s of a similar year are like less than half of what an R1 costs to insure.|

So I sold my ZX10R. It was a very sad day...but I'm getting married and so I need something that is going to be cheaper to insure. I've narrowed it down to a couple of things and I'll explain why.
2004 FZ1 lightly modded.
2006 ZX6R 636 bone stock
I can insure the FZ1 with full coverage for about $800/year. I can insure the 636 with everything except collision for about $1000/year.
Here are my thoughts:
cheaper insurance even w/collision
Prettier (to me)
I imagine it would be a lot more fun in the twisties than the FZ1.
So which would you go for? My woman will want to ride with me on occasion, but more often than not, I'll probably be solo. I daily rode my ZX10 for six months and so I'm not worried about daily riding a 636. I much prefer the more aggressive position to a laid back one....but even though the 636 is by no means slow, I'm worried that I might miss that wonderful, instant, in-your-face liter bike power.
