as long as you're not an idiot, an R6 will be fine. you do have riding experience.
just be very aware of your surroundings and ALWAYS expect the person at the side road ahead to pull out in front of you, have your head on a swivel.

Actually the R6 started to be fuel injected in '03.

I know the 99-02 had a problem with second gear popping out.

You will become invisible.

Buy the best gear you can afford.

Don't watch other cars, watch the drivers.

Be careful and learn to expect the unexpected.

Live to tell good stories in your old age.

The problem is, by the time you're in trouble, they are not very forgiving. I think something like the SV600, Katana or YZF600 would be a better choice. Acceleration is similar, they handle very well but you feel like you're moving and, if you get yourself into trouble, you have a better chance of being able to 'save' the bike. Personally, I find it more fun to be in a vehicle that I can actually push close to it's limits rather than be in something high end that I just can't use. An R6, you will never legally push to it's limits on a public road. I'm not doubting your ability to ride, I just think for a beginner on the road, a more timid bike is a better choice rather than one that begs you to push it harder and go faster.

I dont want to be the one to say it but i will, sounds like he made his decision and didnt really care about what the opinions were
.
Like most new riders he is concerned about his image rather then his safety. In a few weeks we will see a new thread " i wrecked my r6, it wasnt my fault for the following reasons".
The motorcycle safety course is a great class but it does nothing to give you street experiance and responsibility. Can you take the saddle of an r6 with no experiance and be a fine rider, sure, but majority of the time it ends in a wreck do to irresponsible behavior and no experience.

Plus insurance rates will be high for the r6. Even if you get an fz6 ( damn similar to an r6) the insurance is a lot lower.

you really shouldn't be trying to push ANY bike to it's limits on the street, get a track bike and do track days to get your speed out, then your street riding will be casual.

it depends on the person. yes some will buy a brand new 600/1000cc sportbike and have it wrecked in a week. there are also many who do the same and are perfectly fine. i started on a CBR600 with 0 experience, and then went to a 929, 600rr and an RC51 in only a couple years. i had no problems. if you think you are invincible then you'll pay, if you respect the bike you'll be fine. obviously starting on a smaller bike is the better option but it isn't the only option.

Couldn't have said it any better. OP, good luck, I hate to sound skeptical but you're making a mistake. Not really sure why you bothered to ask for advice since you seem pretty convinced not to listen to it.

Drive defensive... ALWYAS. Had a guy look right in to my eyes and come in to the lane I was in on the highway going 75 mph, idiot. Also on my 600RR & GSXR6 I paid a total of $250 insurance for a year.
