I know that it's kind of impossible to be for sure of a used bike's past history since people just may not report it, but aside from asking a seller how he/she maintains their bike, is there anything about the way they speak or behave that can give way to how they maintain their bike
I have hve ridden and owned 600RRs, newer and older and R6s and the 08 and up CBR was just much more street driving friendly from the rider position to the engine characteristics.

The 03 to 07 RRs are a little more pain in the to ride on the street than the 08 and up, especially the 03 and 04 RR, all top end and the most uncomfortable seat ever, very agressive ergos. The older R6 is much more easy to street ride and much more comfy than the older RRs.

Now the newer RRs and R6s switched and the RR became less agressive on the ergos making it more comfy to ride and motor with more juice on the lower RPMs more similar to the f4i which is an absolute peasure to ride on the street. The R6 became more aggressive on the ergos and the motor is all top end. You know they redline at like 50,000 RPMs

This is from personal experience and you would get used to either. After a while, you wouldnt even give it a second thought and would adjust.

R6s tend to do this when you crash them.

Yes that is a nice and accurate. I also owned the 07 R6 and the 07 CBR 600rr and that's pretty much how I'd put it also! I just don't have enough space to put EVERY BIKE I've owned!

would anyone let me sit on their 600rr? I don't think i've ever even sat on a bike, the way you guys put it, i'm leaning towards the 600rr since everyone seems to agree on their reliability

welcome sir, MSF COURSE FIRST.. then I'd suggest you get the bike that you want. getting an older 5-7 year older model would be best, since you will drop it on the driveway/road a few times getting to know your balance and walk it/park it at slow speeds. scratches and other road debrie will be evident in your first month of riding.
a 600 is a good starting bike, depending on how often you plan to ride. if it is for a daily driver, then riding a bike back and forth to work would be a dangerous adventure for a noob during rush hour.
try to hit the track asap. some people around say 1 track day= 1 year street riding
with that being said the more track you do the more experience you will gain, check out the sponsors/schools such as Ridesmart and fastline.
join as many SMR (Sunday Morning Rides - for noobs) as you can. always a great time to ride with fellows and get to know people in here face 2 face <---from FB, and places out there.
Good Luck, hope to meet you at an SMR!

thanks man!!!

the bike won't technically be a daily driver, but it won't be parked all the time either, the thing is I'm moving to austin for school and i'll be living about a 7 minute walk away from the UT campus, my plan is to walk to school and whatnot, but if i need to go elsewhere for whatever, I wanna have a bike to take around

Welcome! Take the msf class, I will be a sophomore at TX state next year so we can meet up and ride. As far as bikes go all the cool people have Honda F4i's....
Jk. As for the heat problem they have really good mesh gear at most of the sponsors places.
