New Yellow 06 Owner in NH

Hello everyone,




NH's riding season is winding down to a close soon. Going to have to put away the new ride before I know it.

I picked it up 2 days ago and got a great deal from Troy City Garage in Troy, NY($8499, they still have one more for that price, and its the green one.). I Got one of the Yellow ones, its kinda like a school bus color. I call it my "Short Bus" so I can claim to ride one. :)

ok... some background....

I'm a product engineer in manufacturing here: www.turbocam.com

Basically I do 5-Axis Simaltaneous Mill CNC programming and process development. I am also a machinist.

I've been riding since 1992(looking into becoming an MSF instructor at some point in the future), and have owned a number of motorcycles. I do trackdays and try to do as much work to my own bikes as possible. I'm sure alot of you can agree that dealer techs are not always the sharpest tools in the shed.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning about my new machine, as well as contributing to the community as I can.

Take Care!
