Picked up my ZX6R yesterday and drove it from the dealership in Monroe to Baton Rouge for a breakin ride.

Havn't had any fun on it yet, but considering how easy it gets to 80 without getting near redline, I'm glad I settled on the 6 instead of a 7. I'd kill myself on a 7, or anything bigger I think.

Congrats on the new bike dude!

That first ride home is awesome isnt it?

I've had mine for just over a week and it keeps getting better - and I haven't even smelled anything near redline yet

Enjoy

Once you hit redline you're gonna fall in love with it all over again!

With my penchant for speed, best for me to stay on the 600's. I just bumped the throttle goofing off and powered a wheelie off a road crown in an intersection. Only reason I'll go to a bigger bike is long distance riding comfort, but I'm going to probably get a Corbin seat soon and see what that does for riding comfort.

Anyone else in the New Orleans area here?

Congratulations on your new bike. I am sure you will enjoy it. As to wanting something "bigger", with the power and handling of todays modern 600cc machines, the difference between them and 750cc ones are minimal. And when you think about it, even liter machines are not that different...
