New To The Yam But Not to The game

Hey I'm purchasing a 2003 R6 this weekend. White Body with Pink rearsets and Pink rims. Pink passenger pegs! It's actually a sick color scheme.

I Used to have a 2005 Honda CBR600RR, But I dealt with some unfortunately shady ass people when purchasing that bike. Fell victim to some nonsense and Now CHP has my bike, and I'm bikeless. TILL THIS WEEKEND!

I was originally going to buy a 2002 R6, but the whole carb thing killed it, so I bought the 05 600RR.

I belong to the 600RR.net forum, those are a GREAT group of guys, hope you guys are the same/ similar. Can't wait to get this R6 GOING!

Hey thanks man! I'm looking forward to this. Have you ridden a honda and could do a comparison of them for me? I know the seating position is more aggressive on the R6. But I think thats better I always rode in some kind of tuck on the RR!
