I love the bike. Great looks, smooth styling. Some of the newer bikes have went to some rougher lines that I don't like. Be better when mine's not pink/purple anymore. 8) I sat on some others at dealerships, and I like the 6 the best. I like the Kawasaki's the best too. I originally went in looking to get a brand new R6, and that didn't turn out. I bought this bike off a guy that I work with. First time I sat on it i was hooked, it just felt right. I'll let ya know more about how it handles and ride quality stuff when it's not winter and I can ride it.
