Does any have actual pics of a blue 06 R1 from a dealer or from a bike show? I am tired of drooling at Yamaha's web site:eek:

Would anyone with photochop skills be willing to chop this photo with a blue lower fairing?

OK for looks only ? The 06 R1 just has the gold anodized fork tubes, different graphics and the lower fairing is black right?

you know my one pet peeve is that they should at least follow Suzuki and Kawi in having the forks coated with Ni Ti or DLC.

Wow I didn't notice the blue ram ducts untill you said that :) So noticeable items are the ducts,fork,and graphic. -- the exhaust sheilds don't count since they used them on the Raven :)

"coated forks with Ni Ti or DLC" would be to cool so most likely we'd have to get that done ourselfs.

The changes are 95% cosmetic. I really can't see trading a 04 or 05 for an 06. :no

well you can't see trading for it cause this deal is one of those things that you have to ride to appreciate it. Probably along the lines of oh they shoulda done it this way the 1st time. New frame, new swing arm, new front boinger's, tweaked engine. IS what they admit to so far. It quite a bit more than cosmetic. This is an evolution of the design for sure. I'm glad I got one as such as the 2007 or 08s may go the way of the r6 now....:ugh
