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.
