Welp, 6 years and 2 kids later…. I’m back! I sold my cbr close to 6 years ago now, once my daughter was born and we went to the market to buy a new house. The time has come to get back into riding. I’ve only ever been a part of the cbr forums and that’s kind of the only forum I like to be on. I remember a handful of you from the old forum days. I did not purchase a cbr however. I wanted to, but at the same time I was yearning for a project and something I hadn’t already had. I ended up with a 2004 r6. Now I know this r6’s tail end might be the ugliest thing in the world but before you judge, I am doing a sub frame swap and it should be a cool project. Look forward to hearing from some of you all again. Please dont kick me out… it’s just a yamaha.
Quiet, very quiet:) The engine sounds like the Jetson’s car and the stock exhaust is way quieter than the 2 bros M2 that I had on the F4i. There are no performance upgrades on my ST, only comfort upgrades. It also doesn’t have the feedback of my F4i…..super smooth too! I’ve put just over 27,000 leisure miles on it in just over 2 years. I put just under 20,000 on my F4i in the 3 years I owned it….
