The FZS 600 has good braking, although before and after a winter you may want to give the brake pistons a good clean as the road crap tends to hinder the piston movement and possibly cause the brakes to sieze. Handling is good (as it usually is on a 600 cc motorcycle) it is a good bike in towns and the twisties in the country but may get uncomfortable for tall riders over distance rides on carriage ways. But i Wouldn't totally say it was incappable of taking you a good few hundred miles down the road, if you want to go larger distances regularily with less noise maybe think about the FZS 1000. I rate the fazer 600 it does it all and with decent looks, i think my fazer needs the carbs cleaning and re-balancing to sort out the power issue on mine as the power delivery is flat or maybe it is that after market can i put on it................. dunno yet .
The Fazer 600 which i call the baby Fazer cuz the thousnad is the daddy Fazer, it is a good first 600 with enough squirt to have fun but so long as you are sensible you wont worry your self, as in dont accelerate hard over stones and stuff or wet manhole covers the kind of stuff a novice might do these problems are there for all decently powered bikes bar maybe 125's unless you want gravel rash and back ache or worse. The newer fazers look good too but i have heard the mid range power is gone and replaced by lower down and higher up power instead, the fazer up to and including 2003 have got a lot of power in the mid range in particular, The newer fazers dont have the same seating position as it is sat more up right and it is taller. I have also heard that the down pipes tend to be prone to corrosion if not looked after on the older design of Fazer (2003 and older).

sorry last one was supposed to be pic of the FZS600 dunno what age it is ( between 2001 and 2003 are the best looking older design of Fazer) dont suppose any of you read computer language ??? if you do you can probably see its a nice looking bike.
It is also apparrently a Very good bike under restriction although it is not as simple to add or remove from the bike as the newer models of bike, as the bike is carbed it is restricted by fuel flow through the carbs and restricted in the amount of gases that exit the exhaust modern bikes have a screw or pin of some sort that stops the rider twisting the throttle any further than a certain amount.
You can get restriction kits fitted for 1000 cc fire blades aswell although, i would like to see the look on some kids face when he is legally allowed to take the restrictor off and he looks at it sitting menicingly ticking over waiting for him to ride it away from the garage or dealer i bet he'd crap himself when he twisted the throttle, i seriously doubt that he would survive the week if he is completely stupid.
