My R6 eats me.

I have been a long time member of the R1 forum, now since i'm between bikes i'm lurking around here more and more.

I have moved from an R1, to a CBR600rr, to now either a ZX10r or R6, my choices are based on the following;

I put 150 miles a day on the bike going to and from work
I like to ride fast
I go through tires at a pretty fast pace
I want something that will get me from A to B in a short amount of time and having fun

I am a lifelong Yamaha guy but the value vs cost on a used R1 is ridiculous since every squid on earth wants one. I am leaning towards a ZX10r for the whole liter-bike aspect, but the R6 is in intriguing proposition. They ride hard, fast, and turn like a bike should.

Thanks for reading,

Re: Hiya

Bikes are all sold, getting a new one this month or next. Trying to decide between a liter bike and a 600.

Merry Xmas
