I first got into the world of SLR's about a year ago and I'm learning as I go. My first purchase was a Canon XS and feel that I've all ready out grown it. I have canon lens which is why I rather just stick with Canon.For being just a hobbyist and having fun with capturing images of family, motor sports events, and scenery will I be shooting myself for not just spending a little extra on the 7D now? As petty as this may be, I really love the flip out screen on the 60D and feel that will be extremely useful. Otherwise why should I spend the additional $400 for what I will be doing?
Thank you in advance...

The 7D has several advantages over the 60D and it is up to you if you think they're worth it. You get better environmental resistance, more advanced AF system and AF micro-adjust to name a few.

There is one other possibility depending on how long you can wait. The 70D has been announced. It pretty much does everything the 7D does and a bunch more, in a 60D style body. The drawback is you can't actually buy it yet as it is on pre-order. Initial pricing would also put it above the 7D!
