I don't have a DRZ, but hopefully you guys will still let me hang out!

Sure I speed on the backroads but I went just as fast with the DRZ.
Also someone asked a question about wieght. You can definitely tell the difference but its not too terrible. The different stance is what takes getting used to. I feel much more confident cornering on the r6 within a week of ownership than i ever did on the DRZ after a year of riding...

When I ride road bikes similar to the R6, I hang off the bike when cornering ...
For me, with DRZ cornering I tend to push the bike down into the corner while keeping in a more upright rider position..

Most track events have groups for different skill levels. The ones that I do have beginner, intermediate, and advanced. I ride in intermediate now, but sometimes I will drop down to beginner just to take it easy. Most beginner groups will have control riders that you can follow to learn the lines. One track day, and you will be totally hooked!

okay that may have been a lie. The front wheel has never INTENTIONALLY left the ground!
Its kinda hard to keep the front end down under acceleration with 136hp.
