new bike - 02 R6
Old bike - 06 gsxr 600
as much as people bash the gsxrs, i get the feeling its mostly in jest, there is nothing wrong with them, and IMO its a motorcycle is what matters.
and to echo what everyone else has said, welcome back to the road, and im sure everyone is glad you managed to survive.
good luck in the future
