    I recently met with RollinLS to get some decals for my center caps (I still owe you!) and I told him the LS progress has taken a back seat the past couple months to my other ride, and he said I need to post pics so here goes

    Its a 2007 Yamaha R6.

    It began its life a charcoal grey color. I bought it wrecked with a salvage title. I fixed it and rode it for a season. Looked decent but not perfect.

    I always wanted white so I sold the stock body work and switched over.

    Switched it over to white then I got cut off on 40 and she went end over end.
    Did close to a grand in damage.

    Well just as I was about to switch out the damaged tank for the fresh one it was stolen sunday form my garage. I was fortunate enough to get it back( Damaged of course) but cops are making progress on the case.

    Make sure you park it away from EVERYONE while at the tire shop. Ask me how I know.

    The bike was in the garage and trust me, security will be increased.

    I have had this bike up to 151MPH. Who knows how those *******s rode it. I now they did a burn out. Cant wait to catch them thats all I know.

    The bike is ridable, just not as pretty.

    You still had a good 20-30 MPH left. I remember pegging my ZX6r when I had it.

    Nice ride, when you redo it, this time add the words "Bad Luck" or "Never Dies" on it somewhere.

    Ninja 600r red/blue/white was the last bike I owned. Back in the nineties.
    Always interested in getting another bike but it would have to be an HD.

    Ya I definitely have more than 151 in it but highways get crowded quick.

    Friends at work call it Eleanor lately. Much like nick cage in gone in 60. No matter what I do I can't just have it (or at least in one piece)

    You need to sell that bike. It's a trouble magnet, kinda like my mom's 1993 GMC pickup. It was a beautiful customized truck, and had over 400K miles on the original engine (never cracked open for anything other than a set of valve cover gaskets, and they were just weeping) but that truck was wrecked about a dozen times. People just kept running into it. Luckily she was never hurt, and after the last accident we finally talked her into getting rid of it. She's now driving a black 2001 truck I used to keep around as a spare. Last I heard her old 93 was still running, but has been in yet another wreck.

    You can probably buy another identical bike, and never even find bird crap on it.

    I plan on going to a 1000 some day but not for a year or two at least. I almost feel bad selling it. Its been through so much, dont want to give up on it now..
