First off I would just like to say welcome and secondly what type of bike are you interested in? Is this your first motorcycle? Do you have any experience? I would think about signing up for the MSF course.

i plan on taking a riders course which is a weekend long not just to learn how to ride but to lower insurance rates. i know i want a 600 and i love the way the zx6r looks. i also plan on stretching it out 6 inches. read that it helps not pop a wheelie. in florida they are cracking down hard in my area for wheelies.
If a law enforcement officer spots that activity, the rider can be cited under the new state law and face a $1,000 fine. That's for a first offense. A second offense carries a maximum fine of $2,500. A third-timer faces a felony charge and can be fined as much as $5,000 – along with a 10-year license revocation.

The new ZX6 is a great bike but I don't think its really necessary to stretch it unless you plan on drag racing it. You shouldn't have to worry about doing wheelies unless you go WOT in first and sometimes in second. Plus it will ruin the handling if you ever plan on doing track days. Just something to think about.
