Yo guys, whats up?

Just picked up a 2007 R6 with 13K miles for 4G's.. Its a buddy's from work, he says its all good to go so I jumped on it, its completely stock.

Ive ridden dirt bikes way back when and even rode a Ninja 250 back in HS (~18 years ago), pretty excited to get my bike license and learn how to ride it, winter is here so it looks like it will just sit in the garage till then..

Here are a few pics.

Welcome to the family! :cheers Gear up and take a MSF course. Sounds like it has been a while since you've been on a bike and it never hurts to brush up on the basics. Besides, it saves you from having to pass a DMV drive test.

As far as stands go, if you are looking for inexpensive, Harbor Freight or TRex are cost-effective.

Ride safe and take advantage of the experience on this forum. A lot of good people with a lot of good information. :fact

Sweet deal. It's going to be a looooooong winter for you. :fact







Although, from the looks of your avatar, you might have something else to occupy your time.

Yep, I am patiently waiting for enough snow to go tear up the trails.. I bet the sled is just as fast, if not faster then the R6 at the drag strip.

Make sure the Helmet fits correctly. There are a few great deals going on right now that I would take advantage of if I had the cash. Happy riding!
