I recently purchase a Yamaha YZF-R6. This is my very first bike. If I would have known riding was so much fun, I would have started years ago! I live in San Diego, CA. There are so many bikes out here. Anyone out there know where in San Diego I can ride to and meet other riders? I have been up to Palomar Mountain, but everyone seems to have there own little group there. I dont think I am ready to ride with them anyways...they get pretty crazy go through those turns. I have seen packs of well over 50 bikes riding on Friday and Saturday nights, but never when I am on my bike. I have been practicing my wheelies, but can never hold it. I would really call them wheelies...the front pops up a couple feet and goes right back down. I dont know if a stock R6 can even hold a wheelie. Any advice from someone would be great. Thanks!
