2008 Yamaha YZF-R6

She's In a full carbon fiber transition right now. Waiting on the rest of the parts to get to me.

Im loving the carbon fiber...bike is gonna look sick! Im over at r6-forum also, but mostly use it for information and watch the shenanigans! Heres mine (04 R6) and the wifey's bike (2012 CBR 250).

Here's mine before I had my accident. 2 years ago, another guy crashed in front of me and hit a car, I ended up hitting his bike and flipping over his bike and landed on the road. Pushed my femur through my pelvis. Learned how to walk again, have metal rod and 10 screws and permanent limp.

Too long didn't read = AGATT, and don't ride with idiots.

Ah that's freakin beautiful! I want to trade up to an 09+ I just don't ride enough to really spend the money. Mine is paid, probably worth about $4000ish so I'd have to spend another couple grand to get the new style. Sweet ride :thumbup:

Been working on relocating my license plate, been pulled over too many times for the typical sport bike "license plate tuck" kits. So I decided to go chopper style. A lot of people don't like the look of it but I think it looks pretty good if done right.

Here is a metal bracket I fabbed up real quick. This is an 07 CBR600RR.



Cheapo LED lights from my local motorcycle dealer.

Doing some splicing with #18 wire I had laying around, had to home make some butt splices out of 1/16" steel tubing I had from a previous project.

Splices done, heat shrink applied, wrapped in plastic conduit. All splices were double wrapped with scotch 33 electrical tape to prevent arcing for the most part.

Finished product side by side comparison

Thanks! I actually wrecked that bike at a trackday at Road Atlanta back in '10. My buddy bought her from me and resurrected her into a full on track monster. She is all blue now and runs amazingly on the track.

I could have told you were from the R6-Forum with that AGG sticker! Justin is a great guy and has helped me out in more ways than just through the forum. A great guy to get to know.

This is the stable now since I haven't updated the thread in such a long time...







and the sumo...LOVE this thing!

2012 Harley "48" with V&H Side Shots and 10" Licks Z bars.

Ive gone through a couple sport bikes before but just couldnt justify the harsh ride anymore. My 48 is far from a cruiser but I could ride it all day compared to my GSX-R 1000.
Besides, Harleys are cool.
