I finaly decided to buy a bike and man am i glad i did. I purchased a Blue '05 R6 after cursing at the parking situation in college and havent looked back. I got it in January so I didn't get to ride for sometime but now im out on a pretty regular basis (took MSF during break). I had read on this site for quite sometime and finaly decided to join after my roomate woke me up one moring at about 4 AM (he had just come home) and preceded to tell me that my bike was laying on its side. Pretty shitty to wake up to especialy when i noticed the right peg snapped in half. Luckily the bike had a few goodies when i bought it including frame sliders which saved everything excpet the peg anf scratches on the right mirror. So other than that is has been great and looking forward to enjoying the summer with it though I plan on buying extended frame sliders and the ones that on the back (don't know what they are called). Alright that is long enough but I am avoiding writing my paper.
