QFT,
Back when I was single, I had a passenger who sat on the main seat with me lol. She was tiny.

Girls are only attracted to bikes they can ride on with you comfortably. The R6 is not that bike.
Quoted this so you can read it again because its spot on.

Yes, it seems like my r6 runs a little hot between my legs

hi new here my first post, couple r6 questions

hello everyone, I ride but I don't own a bike yet, I learned many years ago on a dirt bike when I as a teen, but now im thinking I want a street bike, I really like the r1m, at least in videos, but it looks like too much of a bike for me, im not afraid to admit, the r6 looks to be the perfect balance and it it looks great. does it feel overly hot like I hear the r1 does in videos? I don't want to burn my leg sitting on it. is insurance reasonable? are girls attracted to it? will he back wheel lock when down shifting? also is it really that hard to start when cold? thanks everyone
