...on the bike on some trips. That however is due to the race nature of the bike. The riding position is one of which was designed more for a racetrack.
I have many good rideouts on my 6r and find that when I let a rideout 'friend' take the bike for a spin; they always come back with a smiling face and praise the bike then-on.
I have attached a 'slip-on' Akrapovic aftermarket exhaust on it now...
Advantages: SUPER GOOD LOOKS. Disadvantages: BIT THIRSTY.
...Ive owned many 600 superbikes over the last few years but i think that you will have to go a long way to beat the zx6-r j1/j2 models.
i would agree that the kawasaki's are not every ones cup of tea but having grown up riding ar50's then stepping up to ar125's then when i was old enough going up a stage went onto a zzr400 this was a very good comfortable bike but being a 400 lacked power.
