Default Can I handle a yamaha r6, I am 25 years old, 6'1, 255lbs.?

My cousin has a ninja 500 and I have rode that a couple of time but I am also going to take a course here in houston, texas. But I am a person who loves the open road and I just want a great looking bike that I can cruise around and enjoy for a long time. No tricks or going fast for me at all. not my style. Tell me what you think?

I'm going to stay away from my usual"an R6 isn't a good starter bike"speech...That being said, if you plan on doing any touring on it, I think you'll find it a tad uncomfy. Even a 30-minute jaunt on an R6 is going to be heck on your frame. Being your height and weight, I'd check out a sport-tourer first rather than trying out a true racehorse. I'm two inches taller than you, and found my buddy's R6 to be murder after a bit.You'll probably find that comfort will trump looks any day, especially if you plan on riding all day. The R6 is a beautiful ride, but it doesn't do you any good if you don't enjoy it. ------
