hahah thats what i do every winter! sept i plan on going to arizona with the R6 this winter and do some track days. the funniest is when its mid december and you put the bike on the stand and go rippin through the gears in the garage ahahhah. i figure this will give me some time to put some good tires on it and do some other mods before the season begins march/april ISH

...uggh i couldnt get the R1LE this year because they didnt ship any to ALASKA!!!! i was soooo pissed when i found out that i wasnt going to be able to get on in this state. i got the blue one this year... i love it because they finally have a blue r1 that has gold forks and gloss blue ram air covers... i also am a big fan of the flat black lowers that they put on the blue this year... i had them on my red one last year and they hold up very good and look awesome.

@blueblur... i promise i wont crash this one this year man... uggggh i hope i didnt just jinx myself... i think before i even ever ride the thing imna put a set of pilots on it for good keeping... i think if id of had a decent set of rubber on my red one last year i wouldnt have binned it. =( im still sad about that geeez.

@afc... funny thing was, is that i didnt plan on buying a bike this year, but after i wrecked the 05R1 last year... i just couldnt live without another one. and i loved the way that bike was setup so much that i was afraid that if i waited to 07 that yamaha might screw it up or something like kawi did with their 10R. :shrug


here are some of the visual changes in the blue this year... flat black lowers, gold forks, blue ram air covers... the bike also has 3more HP, a better clutch, almost an inch longer swingarm etc etc.

Sucks you couldn't get the LE R1, but look at it from another point, more money for the mods on both of your bikes now.
Congrats on getting the blue one, they look sweet!!!!
Don't forget about the pics man.
