1/5 of the way there to 100k miles. So far, it has been great. The bike still handles like a charm. I tried the Bridgestone BT016 and they handle great. I got a little over 12K miles out of them so far. It's up for an oil change and I expect to get new tires pretty soon. The bike, well, like always, never a dull moment. It always bring a smile to my commute home and to work and everywhere else. It's still a lot more bike than I have skill for it but I expect after a few track day instruction classes I will catch it a bit. People look at me like I am crazy for smiling when I get off the bike. Some have asked. I simply state...it is a nice.... ride....had police officers urge to go faster but I smell a joke on me...haha....not falling for it... I think they wish they could simply ride and not be stuck behind a cage like the rest of the commuters...if you want a smile to work and a stress reduction ride with a smile after a stresful or hard day of work...get a Yamaha R6... the new colors are great....have fun and be safe...

The 08 R6's have taken on Almighty status in my garage. I'm completely happy with the choice and really feel the track in them. They are not kind around town but get in a spirited situation and it's on!!! Not much out there does it all so well. Buy two, like I did. You won't be disappointed. Excellent job YAMAHA!

I've raced motocross and hare scrambles for years and have owned 2 other street bikes, a 250 and a 500, but nothing compares to the speed and performance of the R6. I ride with an R1 and have no problem keeping up with it. Personally I think the R6 handles way better and has better mid-range. You'd be an idiot not to buy one.

I always wanted to get a sportbike before I turned old. My eyes fell on this speed devil that looks killer. It has the best styling of all the bikes currently in the market. For a short height of 5'7this bike initially was tough on me because of the high seat it offers. But then I grew into it. It is recommended not to change the height of the seat as it affects its handling. The 1st day I rode it out of the store, it rolled like a dream. Smooth and perfect position for a person of my height. I felt powerful riding it. Since then, every time I look at it, it feels like I have achieved my dream. It has amazing power even on the 6th gear. I still get confused between 5th and the 6th. It always feels in the 6th gear that it could possibly have a gear higher. Bending feels amazing! It is highly recommended for people who need an adrenalin rush everyday! ;)
