so in the beginning, i was eyeing the Ninja 636 for a possible upgrade (god willing, would have been able to hold on the 300 as well for inner city commuting).

Yesterday, i realized I don't want a super sport.

WHY?

Because I REALLY WANT A SUPER SPORT! All i wanted to do was go 150mph on 595 here in Fort lauderdale and the fact that 300 can't do that keeps me in check lol.

I'll probably throw an area-p exhaust tune in it to get a few extra HP out of it and keep myself from suicidal tendencies in the future lol

You need better self control. Just because you can, you have to?

I hope you have a slow car as well.

Well the car is still quick enough, but I don't push it these days. Guess I'm just enjoying the excitement of long open roads as opposed to NY's congested traffic

the fastest ive ever gone over on my bike thus far is 25 and that's because normal traffic goes at least 15 over a certain bridge near me. needless to say when i looked down and saw "98" i quickly slowed and changed lanes

Oh. So you've never WANTED to ride 150MPH? Darwinism would be him actually doing it. He said he doesn't want to get a big bike because he knows he couldn't fight the temptation.
Difference between Wanting to, and Going to.

Again, just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Going by what he wrote... he isn't going to and he picked the 300 to KEEP himsel from doing such things.

Ah, English are hard.

He didn't pick up the 300 to keep himself from doing it. He wants a bigger bike PLUS the 300.

And the only reason why he won't get a bigger bike, is because he'd be overwhelmed with desire to go said 150MPH.

So again, he needs more self control, and therefore, can buy the super sport that he wants.

Well I understand that. Speed is addictive. Unfortunately, the 636 may not be the fix. A better idea is a liter bike which will have much higher torque especially down low as well as more usable power. The 600 supersports are notorious for having their power up high. You may want to beat a sports car off the line. My GSXR 1000 will do that. Yes, it is dangerous, but if you pick your times to speed and make sure you are in control, you will probably be OK. I'm 67 and I was on an open road today on my Gixxer with good visibility, no cars, no cops and opened it up for a few seconds to 135 mph. I got my fix for a while now. LOL By all means keep the 300. Not only will the 300 prepare you for a faster bike, but riding the heavier and much faster bike will make you a better rider when you get back on the 300. You might even decide to do some track time with both bikes.
