So here is the 2007 R6 that I went to pick up from NY. These are just the beginning pictures so it will look ugly for a week or two but it's a start.






Hopefully by the weekend I will get some pictures of the bike by itself and then next week I should start getting it looking pretty again.

Never had an R1. R6's are good if you ride a lot in the twisties since they are a lot easier to throw around. The R1's are more or less meant for straight line 190mph driving.
I'm still a rookie to the riding world, only been riding about a year now so an R6 is plenty for right now.

So it's the same basic thing of why I like to ride yz125s better. They have enough power to keep up with the 250 in the trails and sometimes better because you can throw it all over the place without getting gassed quick.
