I guess it would be fitting for me to go first since I provoked the question...

1. I've never ridden, the R6 will be my first bike.
2. I will get my R6 within the week.
3. I have been a member for like a week or so.
4. The bike I'm getting is an '03 brand new black w/ red flames.
5. No mods as of yet, I want the fender eliminator and brighter head lights.
6. I bought a Shoei Chimera (red) helmet and a Joe Rocket race jacket (full armor), and Joe Rocket Phoenix gloves.
7. I have yet to discover my favorite thing. So far, sitting on it, and it just dances in your legs... wow. Can't wait to ride mine.
8. Pictures, well, look at an '03 black w/ red flames for now, until I get mine on here.

9. Bio-18, first bike, live in Dayton, OHIO. I like photography and motorcycles, and going to college first year. Work at Best Buy, single.

Your turn guys!!!
