So this is my third bike. My first bike was a Honda CR 250 motocrosser that I raced in SoCal while I was in the Marine Corps. I wrecked that bike. After getting out of the Marines I moved to Great Falls MT, and purchased a 2006 Kawasaki KLR 650. It was a great bike, and I rode it for about two years.

I woke up one morning, and had a spur of the moment idea to go buy an R6. I've always wanted an R6, and just thought that today would be a great day to go buy one! I didn't have the money to go buy one outright, so I was kinda shopping used. Looking for a good bike in great shape, I headed to the local Yamaha dealership. They didn't even have any NEW R6 in stock, much less a used one. I cruised by the Honda/Kawasaki dealership, with no luck. On my way home I stopped by the Harley/Buell dealership, and they actually had a 2008 Yamaha R6S. After some serious haggling on financing and all the fun stuff, I picked the bike up the following Monday! :YEA

The first thing I set out to replace was the exhaust. I thought the stock can was god awful ugly, sounded like......well, nothing. You couldn't hear it. I'm sure a lot of research went into that thing, but damn it was horrible! I searched for a shorty pipe to put on it. After looking at a couple I settled on the HR1 riot pipe.

While riding around town, I got into a minor accident where an idiot turned left from the right lane of a one way, clipping the right side of my bike. So I took the nice check his insurance company gave me and made some more mods. I got rid of the turn signals (front and rear), and put on a fender eliminator kit. The cracked fairing on the left side was replaced, and the scratched top triple clamp was powdercoated and swapped out. The previous owner had left me some minor cosmetic damage to fix.

A ride from Great Falls to Missoula told me that the seats needed some work, so I had a local shop add some foam and recover them, in blue and white of course.

The latest addition was a set of Cleggs Innovations Angel Eyes and a Joe Florida LED underglow kit. I'm really happy with how it came out!

The whole look I'm going with this bike is I want it to be something unique, that represents me. I love Yamaha, and think the R6 is a seriously sweet bike. So I kept with the stock graphics, and the bike has morphed into a "stock but not" look. I want people to be able to look at my bike and have a difficult time picking out all the mods that are really there. It's still a flashy bike, but just with a little more subtle tones to it.

So here are some pics:





Updated cockpit



Updated pic,





Lights



Hope you guys enjoy!! I've had a lot of fun riding this bike, and putting it together!!

Here is the full list of mods:
Joe Florida LED light kit
Angel Eyes
Sportech Chrome Windscreen
Custom powder coated top triple
Chrome Reservoir Caps w/Yamaha logo
Yamaha Reservoir Sock
R6 Forum.com Reservoir sock
Hotbodies Flush Mount turn signals (front)
Custom LED integrated turn signals
TAG metals fender eliminator
Personalized License plate "Talus"
Hard Rock Motorsports HR1 Riot Exhaust
Custom Seats and covers

Think I got it all. Up next is some Pazzo levers, black with blue tab, and thinking about powder coating the rear sets and passenger pegs black, but not sure.

Thanks! :YEA

Story: I used to have a blue 04 that was modded out but I always wanted a candy red 07 (I just couldn't afford it at the time). I got into trouble on the modded 04 and sold the mods and the bike then picked up this bike (in Charcoal grey) from a good friend of mine for a great price. I waited patiently for months for a set of red fairings to pop up for sale and when they finally did I jumped on them! I got an amazing deal and my dream bike was coming together. I sent in my headlights to misterjj for the projector mod and because I didn't want anything to happen to my precious bike I bought every kind of slider I could find for it. The horn was wimpy so I installed an air horn.




EDIT: I have non-snowy pictures too, but these are the most recent.

I was looking for a bike had my dreams set on a sport bike and always a fan of Yamaha. Things changed the day my dad crashed a lady cut him off and the bike slid under the car he was ok but the lady left him in the road and drove off! I put the thought away for a while but it was there. Later that night I was searching online for parts and came across the 01 r6 champions edition. I had never seen anything more beautiful then that machine the paint the color ohh man I had to have it. Called the guy and he said someone bought it there goes that one so I kept looking. Later on in the evening the kid called me back said the guy never showed up come get it if you want it. Took cash and the truck and drove to Buffalo. I knew my parents would be upset but I would deal with them later. Brought it home and my dad was shocked but knew he wanted to get back on his and ride it was good for him to. My Fiancé had a Katana and now a 636 so we spend a lot of time riding the Adirondacks. It has definitely seen some miles and more of my paycheck then I like to admit. She is my joy and I look forward to riding her in the spring. I know were going back a bit for bike of the month but I think she has what it takes to be the ride!
When I first got it-
