I got my cast taken off yesterday and was released by my doctor to resume my normal everyday activities. I was going to wait a couple of weeks but my wrist was feeling so good I decided to take my bike around the block. Around the block turned into 130 miles of pure fun and enjoyment!!! A force within me kept taking me towards my favorite twisties. This bike is the perfect package...performance with comfort. Even with a hurt knee and a freshly uncasted wrist I felt no pain during my ride. The bike handles well...very well. I was able to take the turns I was taking on my R6 at the same speed or greater. I scrubbed off all signs of chicken strips from the back tire. The power of the FZ6 is just a little less than the power of the R6 but it is alot smoother. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. I love the tachometer, the power, the handling, the looks, the price, and the comfort. I don't like the seat after approximately 30-40 minutes. It is not totally unbearable but as soon as Corbin or any other manufacturer makes a replacement seat, I will get one. I look forward to putting many, many, many more miles on this bike.
