I'd like to hear any pros and cons about the 06 R6 when you come across them from time to time.

i know its not a 1liter. but what is it they say.....more fun to ride a slow bike fast, then a fast bike slow!

Wow! I have a friend that has a 04 636 and a friend that has an 04 R6 and both of them were playing on the interstate and that 636 was quick on the straights, but until my buddy did a alot of work to his 04 R6 with all the mods he wasn't faster.

now the 636 is terrible on the twisties, but it's fast in the straights and that's about all it's good for....also the 636 is one of the most uncomfortable sportbikes I've ever sat on.

YAMI all the WAY!!!!

I think that R6 overated thread rings a bell. I've heard the new R6 is really a smooth and fast bike. They only get better and better every year.

i can get it up...its pretty cool to be 6 bikes 3 lanes wide at 80-90 standing on the pegs on the rear wheel..but i just love riding, and bikes in general. not everyone in our club wheelies..and not everyone drags. were just a bunch of laid back hillbillies that can apreciate the open road. absolutly nothing like a saterday afternoon sunny skies, about 80 deg. just rolling thru the hills 20-30 deep. people definatly stop and look. thats what i love about it!

I think the comparison I'm looking forward to is the 06R6 vs the 06GSXR600... PERSONALLY I like the way the GSXR fit me better... the R6 was just too cramped for me. I've never really been a GSXR fan (only because EVERYONE seems to have one) but between the two as far as how they fit me... I like the GSXR better...

but I do love the Yami
