SUP GUYS? To make a long story short, I joined here 6 or 7 years ago when i got my license with the hopes of buying an R1. That of course didn't happen and i ended up on a gixxer1000, of which i rode everyday up until last month when i sold it. Beautiful bike and very reliable, put almost 60k on it. Through a series of very fortunate events I finally bought a 2013 matte grey R1 last month and love it. Been lurking a while so I figured its finally time to come into the light and speak up. I'm pretty knowledgeable about bikes in general and i work for a Yamaha dealer(which is where this post is being made from) and I'm in the great state of Texas on an island just a few miles south of Houston. Any who i hope to make friends and contribute to the community in anyway that i can.
Thanks in advance guys(and girls that are hiding) nice to meet you all.
