Some common rookie mistakes:


1. Don't start threads about illegal activities.

Beating up people with bats, fighting minors, running from the police to name a few, these threads will not end well for you.​

2. No one cares about your top speed, don't post it.

Everyone on this forum can go 160, you're not special and we don't care.​

3. Arguing with senior members, don't do it.
You're new here and no one likes you, watch what you say.​

4. Noob riders
You're not fast, your skills are weak, and you probably should have started on a 250. Don't brag about 5" power wheelies or the corvette you just beat in a drag race.​

5. Anything regarding suicide, avoid it.
Do not bring this up unless you or someone you know needs help. We don't take it lightly here, it's not a joke.​

6. Asking dumb questions.

Contrary to popular belief there is such a thing as a stupid question, use the search to avoid embarrassment.​

7. Wear gear, or don't post about your lack there of.
A picture of you riding in a t-shirt and shorts will result in a flurry of gear Nazi related comments.​

8. Grammar/Spelling
You learned it in grade school, use it. Forum ≠ Fourm​

9. Selling parts?
Contribute to the forum for at least 60 days before you try and sell parts, no one wants to buy from the creepy guy in the trench coat.​

10. Help my bike's ticking!
No it's not a bomb about to explode, it's the Yamaha Tick, an annoying Yamaha trademark on all R6's.​

11. Think before you post.
This forum is composed of angry sarcastic assholes, if you don't know what color power band you have or what a red limiter is, tread lightly.​


Please, don't be the next A-Rab, use some common sense and stay away from underage girls.

That's a pretty good list here, Colin. I'm sure other members will add tons, and tons, and tons, and....well, you get the idea.

Re: How to succeed in the R6-Fourm

Question for the wise? At what point does one stop becoming a noob? Is it time since becoming a member, number of posts, or a combination of the two?

Great thread!

It's more of an attitude thing. Once one stops acting like a noob, they usually are clear.
