Welcome to JAPON!!!

1st of all would like to Thank Spiderman in creating this local scene for me in Asia. You must have your PC set in high rpm cuz it was fast that this new column came on.
So, all the folks out there with your Beast R6 in Asia. Shoot your crap here!
Nick from Tokyo

Re: Welcome to JAPON!!!

I'm not sure if its new in N.America or there's any different in products here in Japan. This extra column is mainly for R6 owners in Jpn to share thoughts. Well, anyway some of the bikers here are into radar detector for bikes. The solar panel of the detector is mounted outside while the unit is hidden inside (away from rain not from cops since here is legal)

Re: Welcome to JAPON!!!

In Jpn, it is popular to have Akra or Devil pipes on their R6. Yoshimura is out recently but seems that the price is not attacting a lot of buyers though...
Lots of JP riders like to get ppl's attention. They like to put on neons & strobes which I think is pretty old school in Canada & US. From far away it looks like a cop bike but its totally legal here! Strange country sometime...

I can't wait but I'll be getting an R6 once I settle down. Hopefully the Japan section gets big so I might meet some people out there?!

Welcome or shoud I say Yokosou Pharcyde! There are a lot of non-Japanese riders here in Tokyo but I couldnt meet anyone that has the same interest in R6 or even in Super sport class bike. Many are into cruisers cause the roads are narrow. Most of the time, you are either stuck in traffic or busy lane-splitting. It is a "complete waste" quoted by people in Yamaha if I were to purchase the R6 & not use it on track. I didnt & still dont care what others think as I already put order on my 07'R6. When you get out to the suburbs, there are millions of perfect curvy roads to explore. Then, I guess its time for me to laugh at those cruisers dude. Mail me after you arrive & purchase the same toy.

Its not only the crazy drifts. Its completely insane when young guys drifts while there's blind corner & oncoming traffic. They are so confident that they wont hit u. But then of course there are many accidents. It is not a great scene when you travel thru some of these curvy mountain roads & see many flowers tied to the railing where they had died. Then again, all I have to say is "its the trend"
