Gonna get a second bike. Suggestions?
To start off, I know these threads pop up like twice a week. But im just looking to see what other people have done, would do again, ect.
Second, I realize this is the R6 forum and everyone shall say get another.

So I recently got in a wreck as some of you may know. My bike has been officially totaled by the insurance company and its looking like im actually going to get a fair price for the bike, and get completely reimbursed for all the mods and the custom paint job, gear, ect. Keeping in mind that I got a great price on the bike in the first place, and I owe no money on it.
So my plan is that im gonna buy the bike back from insurance (no brainer), and go ahead and make it a track bike. Its only gonna cost me about $600 to fix it back up, plus buying it back from insurance.
So that leaves me with what to buy to replace it as my daily driver. I drive about 240 miles a day round trip Monday through Friday, plus weekend driving. Im not opposed to buying another r6. If I did id probably get an 08+. But I've also been curious about some of the other bikes out there. What have you guys had in addition to your R6 that you would buy again.
Things I've been looking at are...
I know my want list is kinda all over the place but I'm really open to whatever. I just would like to try something else. Not looking to get a cruiser and After about 11,000 miles of commuting on the R6 since July, comfort is clearly not an issue in my selection.
The Bmw has been on my bucket list for a long time, but I'm just concerned about what the insurance would be compared to my R6, and the maintenance costs/difficulties. I feel like its one of those "If you have to ask, you cant afford it" type situations. And with the amount of miles ill be putting on the bike, the maintenance intervals become a big deal. Anyways, what suggestions do you guys have for me.
