Hey all,
I am just curious on how much miles you got on your speedo and how long (years, months, days) it took to reach that miles?

I have a 2003 Blue R6 (with black mid fairing taken from the silver R6) bought May 2003. I started riding my bike full time on August and i have 4,300 miles (in 3 months). I am due for my oil change.

:eek:t
Is it worth it doing your own oil change? or should i pay the extra $37.50 for the labor at the dealsership? They said total for parts (oil, filter etc.) would be $30+.

1700 miles and counting...

'03 R6 (Black w/ red flames), bought it 9-10-03 and have been riding all I can (even when it's below freezing b/c of wind-chill).

2000 miles. bought it July 1 of this year. Was tuff to find time to ride when I first got it as I would have looked a bit strange riding to work in khakis and a button down. Be riding alot since I've been unemployed but that's gonna end soon because of the weather (pretty much has already).......

I bought my '03 new in April.

Fucked up my back in June and could barely walk for two months. Feeling better now, and have got 3900 miles so far.

You back tire should be warmed up after about half of it is smoked away from a burnout at 30 degrees, your front tire.........good luck.
