Talking Much Better..

Just thought I'd drop by and show off my new R6..



I bought used and landed a sweet deal on it. In only 200 miles I already feel like I've been riding this bike forever. It's almost everything that I wanted and it makes the corners so much more fun (which I didn't think was possible). It has completely refreshed me and I can't wait to get off work and go ride. Much thanks to everyone who helped to point me in the right direction.

Big congrats, RA! There seems to be something about R6's and women owners. They just seemed to be favored.

Congratulations!

WOW! Congrats on the new ride. Looks to be in mint condition.

I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with that.

Thanks! It's a little scratched up but I'm going to get some new fairings for it in the spring. It's so insanely fun to ride, I love it. Well, okay after my first ride on it I was afraid I had made a mistake because of the super sensitive throttle... But it didn't take long to adjust and I'm soooo glad I got it. Hope you guys are enjoying the last bits of the warm weather.

Nice ride. There is nothing like the feeling like a new bike.

I always liked the blue and white scheme...even on the suzukis

Thanks!

You like that Ark? lol.. I'm not big on the blue/white thing myself but I'm hoping that I'll be able to find some aftermarket fairings to match my helmet a bit.

I think it would be cheaper to buy a helmet to match the bike.
