1997 Yamaha YZF 600

Purchased: Jul 2004
Sold: Dec 2004
Info: My first bike & I loved it. I covered 4,500 miles in the 4 months I had it. It was fitted with a carbon race can (which made the bike sound awsome at full chat), rearsets, undertray and a dinky carbon number plate. I added pin-stripes to the wheels but it still didn´t look racey enough, so I´ve got to start all over again on my new R6.
