I'm 39, bought a 2008 Fz6r over 2 years ago as my first bike and have put 25k miles on and ride daily. I enjoy the process of learning, building the know how to service my own bike and continuing to become a better rider. When buying my Fz6r, I read several forums and heeded all of the comments that a 600 ss is not a newbie bike and a recipe for disaster. And while I have been immersing myself further into the world of motorcycles, the R6 is calling to me. So this leads to my question...any thoughts/comments as to what prompts or qualifies the change from a 600 cc sport touring bike to a 600 cc ss? Anything I seem to come across speaks to why an 18yro buying his first bike shouldn't get a 600ss and I'm looking for more contextual feedback. Thanks in advance for your comments!
