If you can get 3rd on your bike then you should be able to get the rests of the gears, you just need to keep the front high enough. It's tricky on a 600 but I know it can be done. The R1 is easy to do it on because it has enough torque to pull the front end back up after a quick shift - basically you don't have to do it perfectly, the bike will make up for it.
As for lifting the front wheel off the ground...
Well, I can bounce the front end up in third gear with a bone stock bike. That's usually at around 70 MPH but you can do it anyway between there and about 120 in third. Pretty much the R1 will lift the front end in 4th, 5th, and even 6th but for that I need a lot of speed and a nice-sized bump, peak or dip in the road.
