Ya, i ride motocross, and jumping to a 1000cc bike would be dangerous. Even though you know what your doing, its just too much. a 600 would be plenty.

the R1 is a sexy bike though. Go find a nice used one thats been put down a couple times. Its better to let someone else drop a bike and reduce the value.
