2006 Yamaha YZF600R (Blue Streak)
Last updated Apr 14, 2007
I decided to pick up this little beauty back in November of 2005. Since then I've only put about 8300 miles on it, but once the weather stops being crap that number should double, or even triple. I didn't get much time to ride while I was working 70 hour weeks, but I've changed jobs since then so I should be hitting the road more often.
