I know "comfort" means different things to different people, but I wanted to get some opinions on how the '03 and '04 zx6r's feel on the wrists, back, knees, etc, especially after long rides.

I love my RC51, but it is definitely not a comfortable bike for travelling long periods of time.

I've sat on a new zx6r in the showroom, but haven't had the priveledge of riding one so I was hoping to invoke some of the vast knowledge on this board.

thats cos you are a skinny ass Gus.

I have a 636 as well. if you move in your seat its fairly comfortable. Ive been on my bike 5-6 hours riding and only time I feel uncomfy is when Ive been sitting still on a long straight road. For example riding back from Summit Point on 7, u HAVE to do the limit cos 5-oh is always lurking. after about 20 mins of sitting straight up and down....butt, hands, wrists, back, neck....all tight.

but on a ride where its sweeper, straight, twisty, straight, sweeper......where you have a mix of resting, moving in the twists, resting....Ive had no problems. its all about moving around....I guess having a phat ass helps as well

The 636 is not comfortable for the arms. I find my elbows are the first to go. If you are not carefull, they can lock on you. What I find helps, is pulling my elbows in from time-to-time. Plus the grips are small and I find my self resting my fingers on the clutch and brake to loosen them up. The seat is comfortable though.
