How to succeed in the R6-Forum

Some common rookie mistakes:


1. Don't start threads about illegal activities.
Beating up people with bats, fighting minors, running from the police to name a few, these threads will not end well for you.

2. No one cares about your top speed, don't post it.
Everyone on this forum can go 160, you're not special and we don't care.
3. Arguing with senior members, don't do it.
You're new here and no one likes you, watch what you say.
4. Noob riders
You're not fast, your skills are weak, and you probably should have started on a 250. Don't brag about 5" power wheelies or the corvette you just beat in a drag race.
5. Anything regarding suicide, avoid it.
Do not bring this up unless you or someone you know needs help. We don't take it lightly here, it's not a joke.

6. Asking dumb questions.
Contrary to popular belief there is such a thing as a stupid question, use the search to avoid embarrassment.
7. Wear gear, or don't post about your lack there of.
A picture of you riding in a t-shirt and shorts will result in a flurry of gear Nazi related comments.
8. Grammar/Spelling
You learned it in grade school, use it. Forum ≠ Fourm
9. Selling parts?
Contribute to the forum for at least 60 days before you try and sell parts, no one wants to buy from the creepy guy in the trench coat.
10. Help my bike's ticking!
No it's not a bomb about to explode, it's the Yamaha Tick, an annoying Yamaha trademark on all R6's.
11. Think before you post.
This forum is composed of angry sarcastic assholes, if you don't know what color power band you have or what a red limiter is, tread lightly.

Please, don't be the next A-Rab, use some common sense and stay away from underage girls.
