Hello r6 forum-

I'm new to the R6 but not to motorcycles. Been riding for 48 years on a variety of mostly Yamahas, raced with the AFM for 15 years & was a mechanic back when that's what we were called. Kept the wrenching going even now, my arthritic hands are aching lol!
I recently picked up a 2002 model that was fairly original with 7,500 miles and just finished installing Michelin Power RS tires. This bike replaces my 1988 FZR400 track day bike and I'm sure much more fun. Need to do a few more things, test ride a few times then hit the track.
And I think this make 5 posts-yay

I hope that by the time I've got 48 years of riding under my belt, I've still got the wherewithal to hop onto a sportbike and hit the track.
