Dont listen to anyone here. Get the R6 as your first bike, ride it at like 20% its capabilites max, your capabilities at 100%, or whatever you can get your level at. Remember you can hit 65+ in first gear, so you dont even need to shift if you are just riding around town. Go ahead and enjoy that crappy street bike posture (some supersports are ok for the street, my ZX6R was fine, but that varies from rider/bike combo). Enjoy the super high insurance. If everyone brags about their high MPGs, remember you are on an R6, not a scooter. If you wanted hgh MPGs you would have gotten a vespa. Enjoy that cool looking fat 180 tire cause only the cool guys rock a 180. Enjoy going fast in a straight line cause the guys on their beginner bikes can only look cool on tight roads or technical tracks. Keep us posted, especially when its time for the Part out Party!
Or be sensible, stop itching for a bike just cause it/you would look cool, and get an R3 or other small bike, have tons of fun on it and actually learn to ride (not saying you cant on a bigger bike, but most experienced riders will agree a small bike teaches more things and at a faster rate than the bigger bikes.) All while avoiding most of what I wrote above.
