I was debating on getting one or not but figured that a car is safer for how I drive

"It's my first bike so I'm going to stick with a 600cc" Good god, I'd hope you wouldn't consider anything bigger than that for a first bike!

An R6 is a TOUGH first bike.

Also, take the MSF BRC class - that should be required by law, though it isn't.

True about the 600cc. At least he isn't dreaming of the hayabusa.

A great first bike is the Suzuki GS500, I have one from 1994.

It's not to powerful, you will still able to go highway speeds just fine, and if you do end up tipping it there isn't any expenisve plastic cladding on the sides to fix. Also if this is your first bike and your under 25 they are going to rape you on the insurance. I was looking at the exact one you are thinking about and insurance was over $1500 a year, but with my current bike I only pay $350 a year.
