  10. Very quick bikes, had a lot of fun on my 06 version, mine in France 2008 with ltd edition R1 just hidden behind it in the picture...the wasps especially liked that bike, and the rider too in one piece matching yellow leathers (never laughed so much each time we stopped they went straight for him..)

  12. Nice one cookie.. was gonna reply on the R1 forum but am on here more .. its hard to get your head around a 600 when you're used to litre bike point and squirt.. i did the same a couple of years back.. my 600rr only lasted me about 6 months!! Enjoy the yammie.. fab bikes and amazing handling!

  13. Had a 2008 that I used on track, thing was an animal. They are completely different with a flash
  14. Yeah this one has had decat, m4 exhausts on it and remap , but I'm going to get it on the dyno just to make sure it's fuelling right. The rear sets are a work of art too.

    @frazzle Yeah mate the 600 was a good bike but just not enough , I should have known better really .

  15. Had a 2007 myself. Absolutely rapid and the last sports bike I owned before getting the multi

  16. @JH_1986 same bike I belive bud 07 and 08, I've spoken to a few yam fans and they reckon the earlier bikes are better than the big bang bikes.
  17. Just needs some gold lightweight wheels.....
