This has to be a gut wrencher of a decision for you. I'm not a track guy, but I'd be very hard pressed to give up my RC, it's just that special to me. The 600 is a fabulous track bike, just as all the 600s are; that's why you see so many of them doing it. For daily riding though, I much prefer the 1000rr over the 600. The litre bike just suits me better and the engine is so tractable around town it's a joy to ride, more so than my RC until I get outside the town limits. However, the salacious looks I get every time I ride the RC are worth their weight in gold for me. Even the folk that know me and my bike well still look longingly my direction. So yeah, if you can find any way at all to do it, save your coin and try to find a well priced 600 and keep that RC if you can. It's my heart's opinion talking, but that's why I own one, it's an affair of the heart.
Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
