I disagree, my 10 handles better or just as well as any 6 I've ridden. its just a little less forgiving of rider error.

Both are great bikes for street or track...... If you are a vetran on the track i would take the 10 over a 6 any day

I went from an 04 636 to an 06 10R. Truly depends on how you ride and what you expect from the bike. I never thought my 636 was slow... until I rode my 10R and I got that impression in break-in before I ever truly cracked the throttle. As mentioned above, the 10R is less forgiving. I could spin up the rear on my 636, but it took a little effort. The 10R, does it without breathing hard. Plus, the 10R provides breathtakingly deceptive acceleration. The 10R is a better intown ride due to usable power in the lower gears in my opinion, but in the end, it is up to you.

I agree with you absolute, I also reside here. We have a lot of straights. I just sold my 636 for a 06 10r. Most of it will be street riding. I have seen many deers try to cross out in front of you while riding, very scary. Dead skunks, oppossums, etc. My buddy ran over a blown semi tire and still mananged to keep the bike upright.
