Talking intro/new rider

Hey everyone the name is chris and im really new to the riding scene and to the whole forum thing. I'm here to learn as much as possible so i will be making some threads soon. I ride a 2007 charcoal grey r6 and i actually got it from a rider on here i met in Japan (strictly_veedub).....ive done a little bit extra to the bike since ive gotten it and the total mods so far are

Traxxxion Dynamics tank sliders, Vortex clip-ons, CF tank cover, CF tank side panels, Puig black windscreen, HotBodies racetail w/ taillight cut-out(the color on the tail was off so i matched the paint), Clear Alternatives integrated taillight, LP flushmounts(smoke), MJSPerformance headers, Termignoni GP slip-on, PCIII w/ Termignoni full system map(Euro), Mad Hornets rearsets, CRG shorty levers, GYTR tank protector, Motivation no-cut frame sliders, Shogun swingarm spools, fender eliminator.

right now the bike is in the shop for PC candy red levers, rearsets, and wheels. and soon to come HID's.

will post pics of the rearsets install and wheels after the PC is done! And sorry for the super long post just excited to finally be posting!
