I just picked up my BRAND NEW 2009 R6 last weekend. Its the white color scheme. When I picked it up it only had 2 miles on it. Probably from them making sure they put it together right. After the first day it had over 200 miles on it. This saturday ( Oct 23, 2010) will mark one week of having the bike and I have over 400 miles on her. She rides like a champ and I can't wait until I get her out of the break-in period so I can really see what she has. BEST INVESTMENT OF MY LIFE SO FAR. I will put up some pics and planned upgrades as soon as I get a chance.

I bought an Icon Arc Jacket and Gloves when I bought the bike, I'm going to be getting the pants to match in the next couple weeks. The only thing I'm not sure on is boots. Any suggestions?

Welcome!

Ain't it a great feeling knowing you are the first rider of that bike? It's like buying a new car with that new car scent!

Safe riding and definitely don't go cheap on safety equipment!!!

I have some SIDI boots! Very nice!

Welcome fellow 09 white R6 :)
Have fun modding because it won't stop lol. CAn I suggest Olson exhaust. Also 2 minute mod is flip the shiftter to GP style.

update: after 8 days of ownership I have 647 miles on her. Getting ready to put her away for the winter and start buying parts and planning some mods.

Here is a quick list:
1.) Fender eliminator ( must have )
2.) Slip on exhaust ( must have )
3.) Corbin seat or some other better seat ( still haven't decided )
4.) Flush mounts
5.) rear seat cowl ( thinking black but not sure yet )
6.) shorty brake and clutch levers

thats a quick list and probably going to grow during the winter.

welcome

one harsh reality, a motorcycle is Not an investment, its more a luxury/lifestyle thing. But I sure am glad you love it as do most of us on here.
Its an investment for me. It's my daily driver and ride 100miles a day. I spend about $50 a week compared to my former dd truck $100 a week. :) :toocool:

Sorry but I have been busy with work and riding. I'm hoping to clean her up this week and take some pictures if the weather coroperates.

And GuamBomb I agree. It is an investment. I put money into it and get a hell of alot more fun out of it. If I lived somewhere I coud ride it all day I would sell my car and put the money towards my list.
