One thing i can say is bikes are addictive, this is bike number 4 since in 15months, and still currently owning 3 But i must admit something has to go, and soon. The latest being a 2006 Yamaha R6, in the white and red. This is the first sportsbike i've owned, so getting used to sitting in a position where it feels like im tryin to do a handstand will come with time. But i have picked up and ridden my friends Ducati 749s a few times and those things are worse, my wrist hurts on that, (doesnt hurt yet on the Yammy), and the undertail exhaust on the Duke heats up like a MOFO and is raising the temperature in my balls sack probably killin my semen This is also the first 4-cyclinder bike i've ridden.. Its soo different to my er6n in delivery. The er6 feels like it has soo much more torque and effortless accelration below 4000rpm. Then again its 50cc bigger. The R6 has nothing below 4000rpm, and it really starts to pull like a train at 7000rpm and go on much much higher and it does so smoothly Anyways, these threads are USELESS without pics, so less chat and here she is. ****EDIT**** COMPLETED PAINT JOB: Sorry took a while, weather has been crap.. Went for a ride today, very windy, twigs and tree branches all over the road.. But got some pics in.. You still cant see the detail in the paint but you get the idea..Im no photographer as well lol. Best i can do.
