Hey Everyone. I know everyone on this website likes to watch motorcycle racing, but who here actually rides motorcycles? I was just curious to see who rides and what they ride...So let me know!

I own a 2006 Yamaha FZ6. It's not a racing bike, but it's built from R6 components and is a very comfortable ride while still having some serious balls. I ride it whenever I can and I'll keep as long as I can!

Post some pics if you've got them! Thanks! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/peace.gif[/img]

Bulletproof

Perhaps the most under appreciated bike ever built.

Too bad Honda is the evil empire. Not more than 4 months after I unloaded my Ducatis, Hayden made the switch. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Ha ha! Yeah, bad timing [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] Oh well, it's a good looking bike! I love the naked look...

How do you like that FZ6? I have been considering one for a while now, just not that excited about the exhaust system, doesn't seem too kind to the potential aftermarket exhaust? I ride a 2000 Suzuki SV650, quite customized with full fairing, exhaust and a number of other things. That's another thing, I love having a V-twin sport bike, love the powerband. But the FZ6 looks like it would be really kind to longer rides.

That Honda 919 is a bad motherfucker I rode my friends and really liked it plus the price is right. I im the proud owner of a beautiful 2006 Yamaha yzfR6 it will be 3 years on the 24th of this month i have 23000 miles on it. Thanks to my lovely wife i am now ready for some track days so ill be riding even more now. Next i am looking into supermoto bikes i want either a Husqvarna 610 or a ktm or a standard japanese dirt bike and add on the slicks to avoid all the bullshit government fees and insuarance

I don't have any...but my husband has a 2000 Kawasaki ZX6R, a 2000 Honda Blackbird 1100XX and a 2006 Hayabusa. The Ninja is mostly for trackdays.

We are both race fans.

I've got no less than three in my name.
One I ride (VTR100F), one my girlfirend ride(NTV650) and one stashed away that used to be a track bike(RS250).
Depending on time, vacations and wether I put down 6 to 12k miles a year.

I Ride: The original
I defy anyone to tire of the original R1. You somehow never feel you have full control, and I like that. Although getting on a bit, she still looks great and turns heads. She's feisty, unpredictable, raw, horny, looks great in red, and forever wants to go...and when you climb off, laughs at your inability, a bit like my other half in many ways.
