I Ride: 2009 zx6r
I told my wife I was so happy I could cry.

Seriously, that title is no joke. I wanted a ZX6R for the past 5 years. You see, i had my first bike 5 years ago. The relationship i developed with that bike was short lived. Four weeks after buying it, i found out my girlfriend at the time was pregnant. So, i did what any responsible young man would do. Dropped out of college 3 semesters shy of graduation, got a job, and yes sold the bike. I had to right? Sometimes you have to make sacrifices big and small. Five years later, that "then" girlfriend is now my wife and mother of my two children with our third on the way.
I came home today to a big surprise. She tells me that because i sacrificed my collegiate career to put her through college and support our family she decided to buy me something. You can imagine my surprise when she took me to a house that had a near mint condition 2009 zx6r.
Its 12:45am central time. Ive been the owner of this awesome bike for almost 5 hours now; and I want nothing more at this moment than dawn. Head on pillow, key in hand, and ready to ride.

"Long time commin"

Congrats man nice story. Sounds like the wife is a keeper too

Be careful if you haven't been on a supersport yet, you didn't specify what your first bike was. Post up some pics, I'm sure you'll be taking a lot after your ride

Thanks guys. My first bike was a used 2002 Yamaha R6. I've had a couple dirt bikes growing up. But in no regards does that compare to the thrill you get when you pull back on the throttle of these machines.
I'm a patient person, not much of an adrenaline junkie anymore. To be honest the snappy response is what i expected. I can see why you all say it's generally not a good bike for beginners. Especially if their experience is sub par. Id get the occasional joy ride on my dads 04 R1 and my brother inlaws cbr600rr. But I'm sure some of you have experienced the feeling you get when you have to give the key back. Not any more

Wow man great intro. You have yourself one hell of a woman that's for sure. But yes definitely stay safe and be careful on the new machine if you're not familiar. The 6r is a beast no matter what anybody may tell you

Edit: u must have answered the prior experience question just before I answered. Regardless, stay safe on the new ride
