Well I fianlly did it this weekend. Ever since this bike came out in December 2008 I have been combing the U.S. looking for a good used one. Finally a Yamaha dealership in my back yard had a brand new one they just wanted to get rid of, so I low balled them and got a brand new one for the price of a used one.....no miles....nice.

It is a 2008 Yamaha limited production Cadmium Yellow R6. The first production 600 class bike to break the 170mph barrier.......that's for me.

This was taken just an hour after owning so get a good look at it stock, I've already pulled off some decals I didn't like, some plastics I didn't like and those damn annoying warning stickers on it. LET THE MODS BEGIN!!

Thank you everyone for the cool replies. I wish I could tell you what a dream it is to ride her but after my maiden voyage of 2 miles I've parked her in my friends garage where she will more than likely stay for the next 2 months or so until I get her done. It was a little intimidating as I still have my 1996 CBR 600F3 Smokin' Joes which I ride every day but it's pretty obvious there's quite a bit of a horsepower difference between the two. What a difference 12 years make!! I can't believe how much difference the fuel injection makes on an engine. I mean I know how surprised I was the first time I drove my 1989 5.0 but this bike is alllll business!

Well thanks again, I will post more pics in a month or two when I get her finished.

ROCK ON!!

Thanks Bud!! I've owned her for a couple weeks now and I still only have 2 miles on her!! She's all locked up tight covered in my friends garage as she undergoes the "transformtion"!! When she's done I plan on taking her EVERYWHERE!! She'll be a scereamer for sure (IF she doesn't get stolen :sad:)!

I think it's so cool your bike matches your Bullitt but I would imagine I would get kicked off IMBOC if I painted #801 yellow with black flames.....and desrvedly so! :grin:

Well Ben, oddly enough I bought a new black Arai helmet before I got the bike with full intentions of having my friend paint matching flames on it...GOOD CALL!!

Dude, you're going to poke your eyeball out with that bike.

It's too fast.

Rock on.

You're assuming he can run fast enough to get in front of the bike. :)

Rikki, post pics of your helmet when it's done.

I thought you knew me better then that chese of the co. There's no such thing as "too fast", there's only too slow or not fast enough.
