Bike: 2012 R6 Raven
Re: November ROTM Submission Thread

Year: 2012 R6
Engine Performance Mods: M4 Gp Slip-on, EXUP removed, Flashed ECU
Chassis/Controls Mods: Shermoto Levers, Michelin Pilot Powers,
Accessories: Flush Mounts, Fender eliminator, Dark smoke ZG Windshield, ZG windshield Trim, “Slowboy” Reservoir socks, Advanced Pro million color LEDS, Blacked out headlights and 3rd eye, Blacked out rider and passenger pegs, Removed Factory Decals, Stomp Grip Black, White Rim Tape, Smoked Motodynamic Tail Light, NJG Custom Decals

This is my 2012 r6 named “Bella.” She is my second bike, my first being a ninja 650r. I became interested in motorcycles ever since I was younger and I would watch my older cousins riding on their sportbikes. Of course the parents were against them saying, “not as long as you live in my house.” This led to me heading to college and living in Newport where I picked up my first bike, Had some fun times on that ninja 650, went down a few times and learned a lot of valuable lessons through errors made and the MSF class. Too make a long story short I ended up selling the ninja after college due to the lack of finding a job and student loans coming in. That was a little more than a year ago. This past April I remember waking up to the sound of a Honda cbr1000 riding on by and that’s when the urge to ride again really hit me strong. I headed straight to the nearest dealership, a convenient 5 miles away, and when I walked into the dealership I knew right away this was the bike I wanted.
I have an image in my head of what I want the bike to look like after all the modifications, so she is not nearly completed probably only 40% completed. Here are some pics that the girlfriend took of the bike for me. She’s all about photography so I hope you guys enjoy them.

I got my 04 Limited Edition Silver R6 back in 09 from the stealer ship with 8000 miles on her. After living/racing in the canyons for a year I lowsided her 85+ mph at GMR and broke pretty much everything on it. In no rush to get back on a bike I let her sit for a few months in my garage. I slowly started repairing it and decided on a color change and ended up with a black. Pretty much took 2 years of saving up/repairing to get her to where I was happy with it again. Here She is Enjoy
