Sooooo, back in February earlier this year (when gas was pretty much $5 a gallon), I decided I was finally ready to try riding motorcycles. Never riding a motorcycle, and knowing nothing about motorcycles i needed to do some research. So i spent the next 2 months reading everything and anything about motorcycles. I learned alot about the mechanical workings reading service books. In april I took the MSF Training course to get my license. I enjoyed the class so much and learning to ride was amazing. So took the test and passed with a perfect riding score. Since I passed with a perfect score, i decided to start looking for a 600-650cc motorcycle. Yeah, I read on the forums, talked to all the people who said "You must get 250cc for your first bike, 600's are to much". I felt like getting something I might keep for a while. Was the best choice ever. Picked this up the first week of May. 2004 Yamaha YZF-R6. Got a smoking deal on the bike. The first thing I did was perform a full service. Took the bike apart, did all new fluids, set up the suspension for my weight, installed sticky tires, got a slip on, and did a full detail. Guy before had put a set of sprockets and sliders. I have been riding the bike so much. I put 5,000 miles on the bike since I got it. Learning to ride made my summer the best summer ever. I rode my bike everywhere all over Southern California. Here are a few pics of the bike.
