Hey guys just picked up an 08 R6 about 3 weeks ago. It's my first bike but I am really comfortable on it. Most of my co-workers ride and more than a few are wishing they had one. I took the MSF course and I would recommend it to anyone before even thinking about getting a bike. :toocool:

Pics as requested!








I wasn't going to do anything to the bike and then all of a sudden I had ordered Racefit slash cut exhaust, ASV levers, Puig Z-racing windscreen in smoke, and Proton flush mounts.

My gear includes an A* TZ-1 jacket, an A* Haga TLD 1 piece, Arai Quantum-2, A* gloves, and Sidi vertigo air boots.

the meet is up at the marina green park at 1PM this saturday.

other than that there will be a SF night ride on AUG 29th. This is one of the most fun rides I've been on that don't involve the twisties, sometimes more than a 100 riders show up. the meet spot for that one is in the same spot too.

heres a clip of the ride, its the last friday of every month. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IXjdyYgac0&feature=related

That's why I got the suit; I work with a crap load of riders they say that is the best way to learn. Street only=bad habits. Track=Good skills for street or track.
