I live in Midland, TX but my girlfriend lives in Olive Branch, MS a suburb of Memphis, TN and the Yamaha dealer there advertises R6's for $7099. The website is www.obmotorcycleatv.com and they also advertise on www.cycletrader.com. They were really nice to me when I went into there place of business to check it out, unlike the guys where I live. So I hope that helps you out.
I don't how most dealers handle the shipping situation, but they where willing to help me out when I talked to them about shipping the bike to me. I have bought 3 camaro from out of state(California, Mississippi, Michigan) and never had a problem getting the dealer or individual to ship it, as long as I took care of the costs and arrangements. But every dealer or person is different.
