    Default Any old school R6MN or R6C guys on here? Is ANYONE even here?

    Still killin the streets and lots? What's everyone up to?

    I turned soft a few years back and have rode less and less each year. I still rock standups on the highway and roll an occasional stoppie, but I'm not doing anymore highchairs or seatstanders--I'm just scared. I got pretty serious about slowing shit down back in like 2010. I had a 05 gixxer 600 w/ a cage and round bar, stripped down, but that ended pretty quickly as I looped it on like my 3rd attempt. I think the extra protection gave me too much confidence because I had had much more success just trying slow first gear wheelies off the cuff leading up to my looping episode.

    Anyway, when I looped the subframe snapped and I broke one of the clips IIRC. I was just outta college and broke as fuck so dropping $300-500 on repairs took some time to put together. By the time I did it was winter/cold and idk I just lost it. I haven't taken riding seriously, like the passion it used to be, since then, sad really.

    An awful lot to type for a forum full of NOBODY.

    Hope everyone is safe out there tho, be easy.

    Lol there's a fair share of old members lift. Probably 15-20 that still post semi regularly. I've been around since '06 and most have been here longer.

    Still a lot of lurking, but not so much posting. Most people either don't ride any more, or don't ride nearly as much as they used to (I'm in the latter category). Seems we've run out of things to say.

    I'm still around.

    I just bought another bike a month ago after bike bikeless for 5 years. I've been trying to get a hold of my old riding peeps, but most don't ride anymore. So, now I'm trying to find new people to ride with, but I'm super picky. I've been riding solo and things aren't like they used to be. Rather depressing really. Once I'm done with school I'm going to build a track bike. I miss the track day family.

    I'm pretty sure we all are r6mn / R6c. Don't have a lot of other visitors.
    You cannot reason a person out of a position they did not reach through reason.

    Joined MN in 05. Still around but it's definitely not what it used to be.

    Still a fun place though.
