hey hows it going. my name's josh. im looking to pick up an r6 this weekend hopefully and im looking for someone in the atlanta area that knows a whole lot more about bikes then i do to help me out with it.

i had a trans am, but someone vandalized it and they did enough damage to total it out. it was pretty quick, it kept up with a gixxer 750 and have that on video tape too. but yeah, im just looking to learn as much as possible. also, what gear is good to buy online. i was looking at newenough.com and their prices seem pretty good. im not familiar with the level of protection that a leather suit provides though.


ps. please dont flame me for getting an r6 as my first bike heh. i also dont want to mod it or anything. the bike im looking at is stock.

Im kinda in the same boat Josh, Im lookin to buy an R6 soon too as my first bike. What year was your Trans Am? I have an '86 and its pretty quick too but never tried racing a bike. Here's a pic:




It runs only mid 13's for now with the temporary engine.

That musta been one quick trans am to beat a 750 gixxer, although gixxers aren't exactly my pick for best bike, but we need to see that vid. Welcome to the board and the r6 family. AS long as you ride smart and ride safe, you'll do fine with an r6. You could be a dumbass like my neighbor and start out with an r1...a 2004 r1. :cuss

ok guys, ill try to upload the video when i get back from looking at the bike. i wish i had someone to go with me that knew a lot more about bikes then i do. i know they have 2 wheels, and go fast. thats about it. but yeah, i formatted and it sucked. i lost 2 years worth of racing videos, bunch of 'other' videos, and all my games. but, i did get a dvd burner yesterday so i burned scarface, the matrix revoluions, and pirates of the carribean. ill upload when i get back. im either going to buy the bike, or not buy it. no thinking about it.
