Back on 2 again!

~Arnalds voice~ I'M BACK!


I used to own a 2007 Yamaha R6 charcoal grey and now I moved on to the 2012 Yamaha R6 in white. I tried out the R1 and just wasn't comfortable with the weight of the bike and just how much bigger it felt. With that being said, I just couldn't leave the R6. It looks amazing, drives amazing and it is still quick enough for the fun stuff at a track.

Bought it with less than 3 miles on the odometer, ended up having to drive 53 miles home and then i put some more when i got here!

I'll get better pictures in the day light, but for now these were taking in doors with my iPhone 5.

I sold the 07 last year because I was in a bad financial situation and I also needed a truck. Sold the bike, put the money down on a new 2012 Silverado and finally the money situation is better than someone my age(23) could think about having before they're finished with college.

Here's the truck.
