    yeah, sold with no warranties. I just feel bad that I've had zero issues with it. I kind of think it's something he's doing. I noticed that when he did the test ride, I had cash in hand, that he didn't seem too comfortable on it.

I think it was the tune that is on it. But it never did this to me like he is saying. Not sure what could be wrong with it. He said he put gas in it, premium. So I dont know if it is the gas he got or the tune on the Power Commander.

    any other ideas?

    03 r6 with 35k miles

    So its been a tiny bit slow, works been taking a lot out of me as of late so I havent had a ton of time/energy to throw at the ever increasing collection of bikes here, but alas, I continue to plug away!

    The RD350 is off to its new home, owner told me he had several other smokers as well, along the lines of an RD400 daytona, RZ350 etc, pretty much every bike I want lol.


    The r75/6 is nearing completion, been riding it around the "test track" at work, lots of fun, and sounds great. Had a scary situation with it tho, went to go fire it up, and forgot I hadn't adjusted the throttle cables, resulting in it basically reving up extremely high and trying to take off on me, very scary stuff

    So little things left to do, gotta make up a seat for it, some fenders, get the gauge mounted etc, but it will soon be up for sale as well, although I'd really love to keep the damn thing, as my buddy just picked up a brand new R-nine-T, incredible bike, very fun and def has that similar air head "feel" that you get with an older bike like the /6


    Here she is with my buddy's CM400, love his bike, hand polished tank that took him 4 agonizing days to finish, all the while with me saying "I told you so" when it comes to polishing, fuck polishing, too much work for me



    Here she is with the Repsol's garage mate


    Also, been working on some customer bikes too, co-workers son brought me his 07 Triumph Daytona 675 that he sadly ran off the road into a wash. Hes ok aside from some rash, and the bike actually isnt in too bad of shape, threw a new stator cover on it and had to hot wire the starter relay, but was able to ride it around, and seems to run and ride just fine. Awaiting on him to see what he wants to do about the other issues i.e cosmetics etc


    Also did an oil change to this big boy, quite heavy and hard to turn which is to be expected, but incredibly fast, too much bike for me, I'm quite happy with my CBR


    Will update with the /6 once I finish it, then its onto the big Yami i.e the 79xs750, and the lil Honda CL350, along with w/e else I dig up on craigslist

    Damn, not the greatest of luck there. I could say that you're just not observant but that doesn't seem to be the case for deer situations haha. Hope the ol' lady lets you get that weekend machine some time in the future.

    Found these photos of my old baby. We had some good times.





    My S4 has become an acceptable replacement in the speed department, but no cage could compare to the experience. I miss it dearly.

    But alas, I now have a family to provide for, and they couldn't maintain their lifestyle without me (single income household).... So I have hung up the helmet, for now.

    Back story, I've been down 3 times in about 30,000 miles. I put 15,000 miles on my 636 in 2 years. Looped it once learning about balance points. Next season I hit a deer at about 75mph, finishing off. Walked away from both, bruised and rashed.

    The CBR died a stupid, sensless death. I was excited to ride, and took it to work in just above freezing temps. There's a U-turn to leave my old job. Cold tire, cold asphault, just a little too much throttle = high sided. Rode the bike home, found out I broke my elbow. They totaled the bike over a nick in the frame.

    I am an experienced rider, I started on dirtbikes and atv's when I was 10. Took a riders safety course when I got my license. The whole saying about two kinds of riders is absolutely true.

    Stay safe out there, rubber side down! You never know when a deer is going to leap out of that corn field on the way to the last big bike night of the season.
