First of all, welcome to SBW. It's great here, but watch out for 748_Abuser. He's a jerk. (Love ya Paul)
Check out the thread "recommend a bike" in this forum. Now if it's your first bike you might want to wait on getting an R6. They are not designed for a beginning rider. A good one to start with is the Honda CBR600. New or slightly used they are good bikes. Another one is the Kawi500, but I'm not too hot on Kawis (sorry Robert/Will) Make sure before you settle on one bike you've checked 'em all out. Good luck and let us know your "progress"
HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE!!!

It depends on your priorities. If you want a learning experience with riding, I recommend the GSXR-1000. If it's the mechanical learning experience you want, get the Buell. Either way, you can't go wrong.
