I try not to comment but can't help it. My first street bike was a ZX-11 when I was 17. I have never gone down while riding a street bike (big knock on wood sound here) Plenty of crashes while riding dirt bikes. I think it is all a matter of the level of maturity and good judgement. I am now 31 and after many years not riding I bought a 2002 ZX6R back in june. I found the bike to be very powerful but nothing I could not control or ride comfortably. So ride your bike without fear but with a lot of respect. A bike is just like a loaded gun, as long as you dont pull the trigger... Any bike is dangerous if you crank the heck out of the throttle. Oh and welcome to the board and keep the shinny side up

Welcome BLUEZX6R,

Ditto that.... I've found the 6R to be a super starter street bike, I talked myself out of the 9 and have been very satisfied with that decision, anything smaller would have got boring quickly.

The 6 is nimble, comfortable and I know that, when I'm ready for it, there's all the power/speed I could ever handle.... definitely a bike you can "grow into" w/ a little common sense and restraint. If you choose to own a cobra as a pet, one would hope you'll be sensible enough respect it's capabilities and handle it accordingly.

I wouldn't hop onto it! Take a class. Chances are pretty likely that they will cover stuff in class that riding with friends you may never think of. I just recently took a 3 day class and it was well worth the money.
