hey guys, new to this board.
I post enough on Gtamotorcycle.com, and i've kept the same handle.
I rode a ninja 250R for the past season, and took it to a track day. I had a blast, so just recently, i bought a 2001 R6 Race bike. I needed to upgrade anyways, so now i'm tryin to get the best of both worlds. It's totally modded with Ohlins rear shock/internals/sidemount damper and Motor completely rebuilt by Condor Racing, etc.
It's not street legal....yet
I'm going to check out bikes here to get some ideas of what to do with the tail section, b/c i need a place for brake lights, and a plate.

Here's a pic:




later.

it's been winterized. I could throw some coolant in, and go for a boot, but i doubt the race tires will grip in this weather. :wink

Sucks that you get to look at it but not ride it for a few months. Have you ridden a R6 before?

Check out the East Canada forum at the bottom of the main page, most of those guys are track-junkies from the GTA and a good group, I met a bunch of them at Mosport earlier this year...

hey, just noticed i DON'T recognize ur name from GTAM. I guess b/c i've been lurking, your name seems familiar. :myfault

I havent ridden an R6 before, but i've ridden a zx-9, and an sv.

yep, lurked that forum too, and actually do know some of the names there!

Mosport is on my list for next year, but all the trackday schedules i've looked at are for weekdays. I need to work to pay for tuition (currently, in second year of univ), so i'd be hard pressed to make those. The last owner of this bike told me he hits 270, then holds on and waits for the braking point for the turn :thumbup


thanks all for the welcome.
