Purchased a 2012 R6!

Sup everyone! I am very excited to announce that after doing my homework, I purchased a new 2012 Yamaha R6 in blue. I was able to get the bike OTD for 10K. Whatcha think?

Since I live in New York and the winter is here, the dealership is going to store the bike for me until I'm ready to pick it up, free of charge. Ill be saving some insurance money and not have to worry about winterizing the bike.

I'm coming off a 2009 Ninja 250 which I rode for 3 years and 14,000 miles. Can't wait to learn more about this bike.

Its going to be a loooong winter!
