Is there any danger in getting close to redline?

I have a 04 klr 250, i get off work at around 1am and ive noticed my bike really loves the cold air at night so ive been racing around town a little before i get home each redline is at 9.5k rpm and i'll regularly see that im doing 8k-9k in my 6th gear (only in 6th, i shift at around 7k in my other gears)

I never hold it at that high rpms for more than a minute or so but is there any danger in going that close to redline?
