I own a 2002 CBR954RR and put about 35K on a 1999 CBR1100XX that I sold to purchase the 'Blade. I actually find the 954 to be a little more comfortable than the 1100 (6'3", 200 lbs) but I haven't had any problems traveling long distances on either bike. The 1100 is absolutely unhindered by a pillion. I did 3K with a passenger once and could just barely tell the difference when I dropped her off at the end of the trip.

If reliability is important I can report that my Blackbird was bulletproof. After 35K miles it still didn't even need as much as a valve shim. The Hayabusa and ZX-12 are faster and sportier (although most 600's will smoke all of them in the twisties) but the Blackbird is rock solid. I think that you could easily put 200K on one of these with the original engine if you took care of it.
