So you may remember my thread from a while ago about buying a bike. Well I bought a 2008 ninja 250 and sold it shortly after because it would save me money in the long run. Now i'm looking to buy an R6. I found some 2004 R6's for 5k ish.
The expressway. At 70 mph I was at 9k rpm. I mostly ride on the expressway, to and from school (60 miles each way). Otherwise it was a great bike, but an R6 will last me a long time, probably until I'm done riding.
Insurance is that much for you? I was looking at getting a bike at the beginning of the summer and it was only $236 for 6 months for me. I'm 20 and I rolled a car doing 100 when i was 17 and was in another accident that wasnt my fault. I put that stuff in when i requested a quote and it was still only $236. Did you shop around?

just a few things been runnin through my head
im assumeing you have a license and gear both look like good bikes test dirive both of them but if you dont have gear go with the second one and 6700 miles on a bike is not alot anyway i kinda wanna know what you decide because im saving for one right now also

"can anyone do a backflip, im new to two tip skis"
Well I'll be financing the bike, so I need full insurance on it. Right now, it depends on insurance rates. I've called a couple of places and I'm waiting on quotes.
I did not mention gas mileage anywhere in my post... I want an r6 for expressway riding. On the 250, at 70mph it was at 9k rpm (redline at 13k). Gas mileage drops dramatically on a 250 riding on the expressway anyway.
Yeah insurance is high because the R6 is listed as a performance bike... I've dished out the Benji's for insurance too. If you can get around financing, do it. It will drop insurance to prob 3-400. Also age has as much or more to do with the pricing than driving record.
Make sure you find out if they had done any wheelies on them. A few here and there won't hurt them but if done often and by power shifting through the gears while on end, the second gear will go out. So many people beat them up and sell them right before 2nd drops out of it. This is much more important than finding out it was driven fast. The engines are made for high revving and going fast... just not made to power shift through wheelies.
