  1. went in to Peter Stevens (Yamaha) in Geelong today to test ride the new R6. rode like a dream.



    also put down a deposit ^.^ so within in days/a week it will be in my garage i hope :D

    just wondering, does this qualify for me to put it in my Avatar that its my bike seeing as i own part of it?
    havent stopped smiling all day.

  2. nice one mate, what colour are you getting? after you pick it up and take it for a spin make sure you post up some decent pics of it for us to check out.

    you're crazyyy spending so much moula on a new toy but sometimes you need to reward yourself for working hard ehhh. :grin:

  3. You lucky, lucky bastard.

    They're a great looking bike, nice one.

    What colour did you choose?

  4. black of course ^.^

    now to decide which exhaust to fit. the chrom yoshi "shorty" looks sweet but is priced at $999 in comparison to some 4 letter one starting with G for $400 which is designed specifically for yamahas.

  5. I think you are entitled to do just that. But only that a portion of the bike that you have paid for.

  11. Nice one Breno!

    Do us a favour, either a) keep a journal of your thoughts and experiences on the bike for the first few weeks of ownership, or b) write a 400 word article on it ;)

    Then send it to Vic for appraisal!

    Need content for the newsletter don't we :p

  12. sure thing mate ill take note of it all.

    but it will be a pretty noob review as ive only evr rode a R6 before from sunshine to werribee (about 20mins) and only other bikes is my old TZR and the current virago.

    its going to be a big change and take a bit of getting used to. im used to my butt being lower then my hands, not above my handle bars :p but it shouldnt take too long to get used to. still cant wait untill i pick her up. looking forward to come and show it off aswell :D

  13. Heh, thanks man. It'll be up to Vic if it's used at all, but it'd be ace I reckon. Cheers!

    I'm pretty freakin' jealous too hah. Can't wait till my Ls are up. Technically I'm happy with the experience building right now, but... argh!

    Anyway, congrats on your purchase! Just hope PS don't stuff you around like most people. I'd love to catch up sometime and suss out the bike if you want to check mine out? What kind of riding do you plan to do? Heaps of track days? Just a few? Would be a shame to waste a track bike hehe. I plan to do a heap once my arm heals up fully.

    ENJOY THE TOY!!!! And be safe :grin:

  17. Isnt it illegal to not have some sort of muffler or something of the sort?
     
     Top

  19. the mufflers are under the bike, i found a R6 forum with tonnes of picks. im thinking of sticking with the GYT-R one. the person at peter stevens told me $400 fo the small chrome GYT-R one. also the remus one looks nice. sounds good too.

    im not to fond of the plain pipes sticking out, i much prefer the mroe canny type. although the slashcut one does look nice.

    and undii id be mroe than happy to catch up when i get my bike. im not sre about track days ive never done one before, i plan on lots and lots of road riding. and when i get it i plan to post at least 80-90 topics a day about people coming with me for rides ^.^
