By the way fast_gal, r6's are notorious for their shakes at high speeds due to their steep rake. Buy a steering dampener and you'll see a huge difference!!
Thanks, unfortunately i sold my bike about a year ago. I did find out about the shakes after that. All in all it was my favorite bike. The 2003 R6 has lost a few more pounds this year and it will be interesting to see what feedback yamaha gets. And also to see if yamaha was able to address that problem with some of the other changes made for 2003.

BTW, i'm sure we went faster than 260 but i was too scared to look at the speedo. When you're flying by cars that may make a sudden lane change anytime, you kind of start holding on for dear life. BUt i'm glad to hear you're part of the club!!
