    EDIT: Correction, it is a 190. Stock is a 180. Not sure why the guy switched it.

    looks dark from the pictures ... :mamoru:

    start thinking about looking for new tires as well ... thread is starting to look a little worn IMO

    Nice looking bike though, :bowdown: :coold:

    It honestly isn't THAT bad. Rode for like 3hrs last weekend up north, only thing that hurt was my hand and shoulders a bit. :dunno:

    The 05 R6 was a great bike....in many cases I prefer my 05 to my 08. The ergonomics are pretty reasonable, I could ride mine hundreds of miles a day without any issues. The engine also sounded beatiful when wound up.

    I wish I hadn't traded this thing in sometimes

    I like the newer style, and almost got an 06, but I realized the only thing I like about them is the shorter exhaust, which is not that important.
