my 08 zx-6r was, hands down, my favorite bike. you're gonna love it. very comfortable on the street, capable on the track and, IMO, one of the best looking bikes ever made...I've been a lurker for some time, and have been riding since 1998. I just bought my husbands 08 ZX6R, since he upgraded to a 2011 ZX10. Love this site and hope to gain lots of good info.
