If you're looking for a comfortable bike that still has some sporting prowess, I'd take a look at Yamaha's red-headed step child, the YZF600R. The YZF600R has more torque and horsepower than the FZ6 or R6 below 10,000 rpm's, it's about the same price as the FZ6, less buzzy, and has a pretty comfy riding position for long hauls. It's won top honors for being the best middleweight streetbike and it has been compared to the Honda VFR800 but with a cheaper price tag. My brother has an FZ6 and despite it's comfortable riding position it does have a horrible engine for street riding, and the vibes kill my brothers hands on 1 hour + rides. The older European Fazer 600 was a MUCH better all-around street bike, unfortunatley Yamaha decided not to bring it across the pond. Good luck shopping for the "perfect ride", there's lot's of good choices out there.
