Just thought id start my first post on here with a small introduction...

Based in North West of England, just put down my deposit on the 2008 R6 in blue. Looks amazing with the gold wheels. Should be on the road this time next month.

I wanted to check if there are any other UK people on here and had a few questions about riding gear.

First of all I have seen the Yamaha Venturi jacket and would go good with the bike but wanted to know if textile pants go with race bikes or is best to go with a set of leathers?

Other question is about helmets - I have seen the helmet on the yam website on the adds for the R6 and R1, its made by BYE and I can not find it for sale on a UK site just the Italian website link from the BYE site, any ideas where to find ? or would it mean a trip to Italy to buy??!!

any way any help appreciated - I will be posting the pics of the bike ASAP.

Also you get any girl bikers on this site??

Thanks:)

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the bike, post some pics of it. That 08 blue with gold wheels is pretty sick. We don't get it in the US though. :(

As for lady riders, there are a few on the forum.
