Hello everyone, I've been on this forum for a couple days, and I skipped the whole intro thing, but i'm here to make up for it, haha. I own a 2006 raven R6s with a few slight mods. I lost it about a week ago trying to learn wheelies, so the bike is in re-build status now. I got injured (broken collar bone, broken toe, and lots of road rash) but i'll be getting right back on once I heal. The forums look pretty chill here, so I plan on sticking around for a while.

I've been into the modified car scene for about 9 years now, and always wanted a sport bike (R6 and Ninja 636 were my favorites) but never really had the balls to actually get one. I had a good opportunity come my way with this R6s so I decided to give it a try. I've been in love with it ever since. Its helped get me in trouble a few times, and being a newbie got me injured, but i'm a firm believer in dusting off and trying again, haha.

I unfortunately never really took any good pictures of the bike before I wrecked, so I will start taking pictures and updating as the rebuild progresses.

I keep hearing (well, reading) about 'looping' is this basically where you go to high, and get thrown off the back, lmao, because thats what happened to me.

Man...forget wheelies. Learn to go fast...on the road track! :nocontrol
I plan on getting into that next summer. I already road track race my cars, so its only fair to bring the bike out to play!

I got a good 5,000 miles on the bike before I dumped, I just tried to learn too much too fast. I'll be back on it as soon as my bones heal!
