I'll play along.

Bike's name is magmaR 750.
It's a 2016 750.
Mods include:

M4 GP slip on, Shogun sliders, MZS shorty levers, white wrapped brake and clutch lines, fender eliminated, blacked out turn signals, blacked out windscreen, blacked out Brembo calipers, sticker bomb'd fenders, custom color scheme, and a first edition Magmar pokemon card.

The story:

Back up to 2007, I used to watch/help my older brother work on his 2006 600 track bike and was so jealous and wanted to ride so bad. Parents would have disowned me if I got one (I was young, immature, dumb, and an adrenaline junkie so I probably would have killed myself, so kudos to my parents). Fast forward to 2016, I graduated with my bachelors in civil engineering, got a full time position in Tallahassee, Florida and decided to finally reward myself with my dream bike. Bought magmaR in May on 2016. Got in a crash in like September on 2016. Was in a group ride being hooligans, lack of communication lead up to me getting to the top of a hill going 140mph+ when I see a few bikes completely stopped in the middle of the road waiting to turn, dude in front of me instantly locks up his back wheel, skids for so long in between two other riders (one with a passenger), but managed to stay up. Me on the other hand tried to emergency brake, got it down to about 30ish when I locked my back wheel. Tried to skid to the left of one of the stopped bikes (without the passenger). He finally turned left as I was a few feet away. I tried to change directions and skid to his right side, when I ran into his rear. I shot off my bike into his rear wheel/exhaust area shoulder first. I broke a rib and bruised up my whole body real good. Luckily I was wearing a good jacket/pants/helmet/gloves/boots so I wasn't covered in road rash and only broke one rib. My shoulder pad took the entire impact, as my helmet wasn't even scratched. Lots of sore days and weekend projects later, magmaR is back and looking fresher than ever.

Expensive and painful lessons learned, but still ride daily and have a better appreciation of my life..and I live in Florida so riding season is about January - December.

Did my first track day a few months ago. What an experience! I learned more on that one track day with the riding coaches than I did all year of street riding. I'm obsessed. Can't wait to go back and progress more.

Anyways, here is magmaR 750:


















and as a bonus..

Ok so I need some help with photobucket or some other site to post pics on. My PB is not letting me log in or get a new password and I can't figure out flickr so here you go again:

05 600
mods:
DB windscreen, shorty levers, -1/+2 520 kit, DRD, polished frame and rear wheel, chopped D&D can, F&R SS lines, TRE, PC3, k&n air filter, bar end mirror, grips, rim tape, undertail, LEDs, HIDs, 5+hp worth of stickers and my lucky dice tire valve covers! And she is no longer lowered!!(thank Jebus, I can dive in again!!!)

long story short: got hit on my last bike and grabbed this one while still in therapy from the accident that totaled my previous bike and mangled my leg. had to rip off all of the ugly and make her mine and here she is:





K5 600

undertail
polished frame
HIDs
LED kit
