So after owning my R6 for 3 years I had to say goodbye to it a few months ago. Many purchases were made here on the forum. Countless times spent lurking and camping on for the best deals to get more goodies on my bike but life changed and I had to adapt. Twas a grand achievement to purchase the bike all on my own at the age of 21 for my brithday. Spending 250/400 a paycheck to pay it off. I was lucky enough to have a buyer let me have the bike and trusted my words that I will pay him off in full, which I did. 3 years, some 13K miles later and countless cash poured into it I bid farewell as I moved to NYC from MD.

With luck though I found a nice paying job a few months later and now I'm going to save up to one day own an R6 again because it was a very fun bike and it allowed me to go from an entry level rider to an experienced rider. It gave me the confidence to go faster and just enough power to not let me kill myself on the road.

However, after being 3 months without a bike and missing riding so much. I decided to try something say Hello to..

I do hope to one day have both an R6 and this sitting side by side. Enjoy the pics!

Re: Goodbye....Hello!

Yea im still gonna hangout on the R6 forum and attend events. The folks doesnt seem as fun as here

It was kind of suprising cause I was shopping for a Hyper but the salesman let me test ride this and man it felt good!. He also gave me a good deal on it.

GundamZepp, thats just a 50mm 1.8 lense. Such a cheap and good lense..
