Hi peeps! im a newbie here. Currently i am based here in Qatar (site of the first round of motogp and WBSK) but i am originally from the Philippines.

I have a 2006 Yamaha YZF R6 but my bike is relatively new as it came out of the showroom just last April 2008.

The mods are... Vortex Race Pedals, R & G sliders, R & G fender eliminator, Vortex brake levers, Fabri smoked wind db wind screen and a couple of simple mods in it.

I joined this forum to know more about my bike and get to know all you R6 fanatics out there.

Godspeed and Safe riding to all!!!

simply curious - why do you want a 190 rear tire on your six?

thanks for the question... coz the guys im riding with here are telling me to change my tires to a 190... some of them are riding 600s and some liter bikes but they all use 190 semi slick (pirelli).. but i have doubts on putting a 190 on my rear... i feel comfortable on my 180 rear though its a bit slippery since it is stock so i intend to just change it to a 180 semi slick. im excited on my first track day on Losail International Circuit this October and a bit scared i suppose so i want to take as much precaution i can...

hoping for your inputs...
