Well.....lets try this again, lol

some info:
The name is Robert. I fell in love with sport bikes back in 2004 when i was a junior in HS. After laying my eyes on my very first bike...i was never the same. Unfortunately I was still living at home with my parents and coming from a Hispanic culture…it was not very easy trying to convince my parents to let me get a motorcycle so the long wait started. After waiting six years, in 2010 I purchased my first sport bike, 2001 R1. I soon realized that shit was way too much for my newb ass so I sold it and gathered money to get a new bike. After saving up for four or five months I drove down to Covina, CA and picked up Pep-C. Thanks to God and my wife, my dream came true and I was able to get the bike of my dreams.
So my adventure started with Pep-C and I’ve slowly been upgrading parts here and there. I enjoy working on her and getting my hands dirty at 10PM and not regretting it in the morning. Since 2004, my life has always somewhat revolved around sport bikes and it has recently been taking up a lot of my time. My wife along with Pep-C, are my encouragement, therapy, joy, and the twinkle in my eye. It’s been hard for my wife to let me get a bike and watch me dump $$$ into her when I get nothing it return (monetary wise) but she is able to see my happiness and she has been very supportive of it.
Everyone here has a bike with a story, I don’t feel like mine is any more special than how you feel about your bike, but your vote would be more than appreciated. Thanks for reading!

Guess I'll try again since Feb. didn't work out too well lol

Year: 2006
Model: R6 - 50th Anniversary Ed.
Engine Performance Mods: Stock (Pantie-dropper, I know :D)
Accessories: Flush Mount LED Turn Signals, Integrated LED Tail, Yamaha GYTR Spools, Swing Arm License Plate Mount









My first Yamaha, and I must say...I'm going to be hard pressed to get a different type of sport bike. The bike has exceeded many of my expectations and the 50th Anniversary edition is something to just stare at. Every time I park my pike and I'm walking away from it, I look back at it a few times. (Don't act like you guys dont' either :nocontrol)
