BamaR609's Official Build Thread

I bought the 2009 R6 back in June of 2011 as my first bike and was quite nervous because I had never been on two wheels of any kind other than a bicycle. I took things super slow at first and still go at my own pace and don't let others push me beyond my limits because I am no Valentino Rossi by any means. But I feel like I need to start my own build thread to share my story with others and let everyone know what's going on down here in sweet home Alabama. I will try to post pics in the proper order based on the timeline that the mods were installed.

Parts List:
-Hyperpro RSC damper
-Graves Full SS Exhaust
-PCV
-Graves Block Off Plates
-K&N Race Filter
-Projector headlights 4300k
-Custom powder-coated levers, sets, and passenger pegs
-Dynojet Exup servo motor eliminator
-Puig double bubble smoked windscreen
-Flush mount turn signals (red)
-Fender eliminator
-Shogun frame sliders and rear spools

Gear:
-Shoei RF-1100 Helmet
-Alpinestars gloves
-Alpinestars GP-Pro leather jacket
-Alpinestars Textile


Future parts/gear:
-Stomp side tank grip pads (clear)
-All gray fairing pieces painted jet black
-Gaerne GP-1 racing boots (white)
-Leather track pants (undecided)
-Shermoto LF7 levers
-Alpinestars GP-Plus gloves

That's good that you ride your pace man. Don't let anyone push you out of your comfort zone. Looking forward to pics of the 6.

First time actually on the R6, I know I'm in shorts but I was riding up and down my street never getting over 20 mph plus it was like 100 degrees that day lol. I was scared shitless if you couldn't tell lol.

My first mods had to be a smoked Puig double bubble windscreen and a blacked out visor for the shoei.

That's how I started out, I didn't get out onto an official street with traffic for a 2 full weeks. And the boots might happen this Christmas if my girlfriend is still cool
