Well I figured I would enter mine as this is the last chance while she is still in my possession. Many of you know, but I am sure some don't...I wrecked at road atlanta and she got totaled out by my insurance company. Right now she sits in my garage looking like a used up condom after a long night of getting it. Luckily I didn't have any of the carbon or headlights on it at the track. So here are a few of the pics I have before she died. I only had the carbon and lights installed for a month or two before the track day, so the pictures are limited. I also never installed all the carbon at the same time. I liked to mix and match it as pleased. This was the test bike to create all the carbon for us 08-11 R6V's. My bike was naked for over a year to get the molds made for the carbon. I have been waiting for a very long time to submit my bike for this thread. It was like every mod I installed, I would say one step closer!
Though she wasn't done, the recent events force me to.DO NOT GIVE ME SYMPATHY VOTES
. This is for the cleanest, sickest, most original bike out of the bunch; end of story.
I purchased this bike new in July of 2008. I remember sitting at the house seeing a Yamaha commercial with a slogan stating if you don't do it now, you never will. I usually blow marketing off but I took this one to heart. I had sold my previous bike a few months back and was getting the itch...this just pushed me to take the plunge. This was my first fuel injected sports bike. I owned a Honda CBR F3 before, but that thing had nothing on the 6. I immediately went head first into making her my own. After a loving two years of ownership and a few track days, this is what she amounted to.
