Hello from Northern Ireland...

Hello folks, recently joined the R6 club so i thought id pop in here and say hi...

Im from Belfast, in Northern Ireland, i have to confess i dont actually ride my R6 yet as i have not done the test to get my full license yet but as i recently came into a bit of money i thought id snap up one that ws for sale locally to me as it was to good an offer to miss.

I currently ride the R6's little brother the R125, not a bad wee bike at all i think...



not really done much to her bar the tail tidy, Micron exhaust, rim tape and tank pad...

I have my test just before xmas and once passed i have this bad boy waiting for me...




This thing is an absolute weapon, has a few extras including a full system Devil exhaust, Ohlins steering damper, rear sets, Dynojet power commander. plus alot of other stuff and all original equipment threw in too.

Shes kicking out 118bhp at the wheel so im expecting her to be scary quick...

Cant wait il next summer now, gona be a long few months...

Hello and welcome

Definitely always interesting to see R6's in different countries since they have different subtleties.

Re: Hello from Northern Ireland...

Hi mate, and thanks, i like my red and white incase you didn't notice lol...

Never been to the isle of man, planning a trip over for next year tho so should be good fun, there is no speed limits there so you can blast round the whole island as fast as you dare so you can basically have a crack at the track yourself yourself...

I usually go to the North West 200, its another major road racing event over here, based in a place called Portrush and goes through 2 other towns, pretty much the same thing but different place, usually get all the same riders turning out...

Tis a crazy sport the road racing, you need to be a different breed for that stuff. I like to hammer round the backroads as much as the next person but those guys take it to another level, no run off's or sand traps, you go off and you have nothing to stop you bar lamp-posts, brick walls and steel wire fences but it is awesome to watch.

the Ulster grand prix at kirkiston is another road racing event over here, its worth a wee youtube too though sadly there was a fatality at this years one, young rider, in his early 20's...

Not for the faint hearted...

Re: Hello from Northern Ireland...

LOOOOOOVE the R125!


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Thanks mate, and yea i never leave home without gearing up. Just not worth it. I only have my textile stuff at the minute, but splashing out on new leathers, boots, gloves and a lid when the xmas sales kick in...

Re: Hello from Northern Ireland...

Those are both sick bikes. Congratulations to you for having such epic patience. I like the provisional license policies over seas a lot. It's good to see someone respecting it. I'd have a couple more friends if we had these rules here, no question about it.

Good luck on your test and stay safe!
