For my first street bike I decided to go with an R6. I have been riding dirt bikes for the last 11 years, and figured it was a good bike to start out on. Right now she has 25K miles on it, and for a first bike that I got for free, I can't complain at all. She has a full Arata Titanium Exhaust kit on her which includes headers etc. I wanna put a shorty pipe on when i get some money, since i feel the pipe is in the way for the passenger. Seems like the bike has not even been laid down so lets hope I can keep it that way for as long as possible.
First off, riding is way different than a dirt bike thats for sure. lol way more leaning and counter balancing. But it was easy to get used to after I got on the road a few more times.
Got a new set of Dunlop tires for the rear and front.
OH and she has a power commander 3 as well. to bad i can't put any new maps on her since i have a mac. gotta wait till i get my pc back. And a tinted front visor.
as far as second gear....101mph is not bad I would say lol. Wasn't even close to red lining it. hah
as for anymore after market parts...ill probably end up putting a rear seat on the bike, but that won't be till i get my license after july. permits suck.
