I asked this once before but here goes again...What were you riding before you got your 636 and how did it compare?

don't have the luxury of the new 636, but I was bikeless before my 98 ZX6R. Despite the pros/cons of starting with a sportbike, I hear that I have a decent bike which is pretty comfortable as compared to others in its class.

I just traded in my 00 Yzf600 friday for my zx6rr. Before the Yzf, I had a 95 Katana. Both bikes compared to the 6rr are big time porkers! The YZF was a bit more comfortable, but only because the 6rr is set-up a bit stiff (for now) for the shitty back roads around here. What about you 21 natas, how does your 636 compare to your previous bikes?

I was riding my buddies 99 CBR900RR. Long story but....he got 2 DWI's back to back so I rode his 900RR for two summers. Then he couldn't afford the insurance and sold it. I was hooked. I wasn't exactly sure I was going to get a 636. I just went to look around the dealership one day before work and ended up riding a new blue 636 to work. To me, the CBR wasn't as comfortable as the 636, but it had much more power and torque.

I rode a 91 Kawasaki 600R and then a 92 F2 before I rode my 96 6R.

I had a 2000 ZX-7R.

I have to say in a way, I miss the old 7. It was such a solid bike. I loved the way it looked, too.

On the other hand, the 636 is so much more peppy than the 7. Especially admirable since it has a smaller engine.

The only thing I don't like is it's a little jittery in the turns compared to the 7. Then again, the 7 weighed 448 dry! I could've rolled over a baseball bat in a turn and not noticed. :)

i had a 98 zx6E before my new zx6rr race bike, though a few trips through the neighborhood has shown how many light years better this bike is. i love it, and am thinking of picking up some street fairings for the winter.
