New R6 Owner from Seattle

Hi All,

Just picked up my new-to-me R6! Coming from a Suzuki SV650 (and a pair of GSX-R demo rides), it's going to take a bit of time to adjust to. Joined up here in order to pose potential questions to existing owners about little things I noticed riding the bike back home from the seller's house.

What I will say is I LOVE the acceleration on the freeway; my SV feels sllooowww now.

Anyway, glad to be a part of the group.

Trevor
