I finally broke down and got rid of my zx6r....my 02 was pretty much run into the ground. I did however stick to a kawi and went to a Z1000. I absolutely love it. Torque, power and it revs nice. Vibrates a bit but just enough to let you know you're on a big bike. wheelies nice. I can honestly say it corners as well as my 6, accelerates harder and the upright position allows me to do some serious miles without back pain... i guess this means i have to leave the forum..
