Im pretty lucky
You apparently haven't looked into motorcycles much. A new R6 is going to cost about $2,500 a year in insurance if you are under 25 and male. In the long run they probably won't like you for it at all.

If you can get a bike that is >5 years old the insurance takes a dive (I pay $420 a year). I had high hopes and dreams of getting a ZX-10R after I got my job but insurance in the 11K bike was 2.9K a year with a clean driving record . I don't want to pay the much because I would have paid for the bike in less than 4 years of owning it just in insurance, more of a principal thing than a money thing. So I settled for my Z .
