Angry engine vibration?

Hey guys I have a 2006 R6 i bought brand new about 4 months ago I got my first service at 1000k, and followed manufacturer guidelines for break in. I am now at about 4200k, anyways last week I let my bike sit without riding it for about 7 days and tuesday i fired it up and road it pretty much all day, but I noticed it felt different and sounded different, it felt as though i had a vibration when i accelerate. so then yesterday i got on it again and same thing so i took it to the dealer and got the service guy to take it for a rip and he said he could feel a vibration in the engine but its probably nothing. well i am not a mechanic but i know how my bike runs being that i have put over 4000k on in 4 months. So the only thing that was different during the week i had it sitting was i let it sit in some heavy rain without the cover on.Basically my bike runs fine but it doesn't feel as smooth as it was. If anyone has any ideas on this matter please let me know.

Moisture in the gas... drain it and start with a fresh tank.

when the dealer did your first service they phucked it up!
Never let any dealer do any work on your machine.

Oil change is all they do and check for loose bolts, they probably made some kind of mistake when changing your oil and started the motor with No Oil just long enough to cause bottom bearing damage!
They were probably letting the punk kid porter learn on your bike!

I bought a new 2010 Toyota Camry LE 4-cyl one and half month ago, and have driven it for only 1200 miles. Yesterday I suddenly felt vibration/knocking from the engine while I was driving at about 30 mph, in the mean time both the Check Engine and Slip Indicator lights were on. The vibration became worse during acceleration. I parked the car and opened the front hood, I saw the engine vibrating badly. I have sent the car to a Toyota dealer, and am waiting for a diagnosis. The service man said there have been quite a few people got the same problem with the new Camry. Really disappointed with Toyota's quality control. I am sure I am using the right gas. Do you have any idea what happened in my car? Shall I contact Toyota directly? Thanks a lot for any suggestions.
