My name is John Karanja, I live in Nairobi capital in Kenya, I instantly fell in love with the Yamaha R6 since the first time I saw it, a 2007 wine red and black Yamaha r6 back in December 2011. I instantly knew I wanted one, I was in college and it would have been perfect for commuting to school and also ride to be with my family in (188kms away) upcountry every other weekend. Its been 8 years and the dream is drifting further and further away, between tuition fees, rent and daily expenditure I barely managed to save enough to get a decent helmet. I am adamant about getting the bike but the reality on the ground speaks a different language. Anyone else endured a tough journey to get the bike of their dream with a happy ending? it could really encourage a brother to hold on.
