Thanks everyone for being so nice. It is my first bike but I have been riding for a long time. I started out on home made minibikes when I was 5. I have always been a Yamaha fan but didn't like the twin headlights of the R6 and figured since this model had been out since 97 it can't be all bad. I have been looking at the seat skin from Second look.com. I like the looks of the solo seats but I occasionally use the back seat to tie my tail bag to. I have a huge tank that is two bags in one but when you zip them together I can't see the spedometer. Best of all no one in my town has one of these and I get 48 mpg.
