    So yeah. I've been lookin around and now that I have my Pony kinda where I want it, for now that is, I have decided to get myself the bike I wanted. Its actually a 2005 Yamaha R6. Nothing too fancy or that crazy fast but something to have some fun on. My buddy has been riding for a while and he is teaching me how to ride on his right now. I took one ride on his bike and I just fell in love with it. But anyway, when I get it Ill post some pics of it. Hopefully it can get me some more ladies! :pimp:

But yeah, i think I am going to get the Raven one... all black with the tinted window etc.... I will be definitally riding slow for a while. But at least ill know I can woop up on some cars... well not TRUUBLE's though......

    It annoys me sometimes seeing people riding round in flip-flops and trainers and no gloves, sure there cool, but just try doing 70mph in a car, open the the door and put your hand flat on the road surface.
    Thats basically what the road and pavement do to unprotected skin, saying that treat everyone else on the road as an idiot and you should be ok. :)

    Cool.....Im suppose to go look at bikes this weekend. I had a GSXR600 back in 2001 and ive been tring to stay away from them since i now live in Atlanta. Im gonna look to get something used. I want a GSXR1000 but i may take a 750 depending on the price. This is just a small want for me, if i have the least bit of trouble getting it, with financing, down payment or anything im calling it off. I plan on putting $2K down maybe a little more depending on the bike.

    Yeah the R6 should do me justice. Another one of my friends has the GXR750 and he likes it. I always wanted a R1 but I decided that I want to live to at least see 25....
