2006 R6 and R1...non-photoshop

I hope this isn't a repost.

Here are photos of what are supposed to be the 2006 R6 and the magnesium and ohlins equipped R1.

I like the looks of the R6 even with the Gixxerish can.

Yamaha fans enjoy

That R1 is a beautiful piece of machinery.

That R1 Is AWESOME!

Not sure if I care a lot for the Gold but it still looks good.

I was wondering about that pipe myself. I like it, but happens to the passengers feet? It the bike officially a track bike now, and not for two up use?

Oops! Just noticed there is no place for second foot pegs on the bike. Interesting.

I think I need to start saving, both bikes are hot!

I still think the Gold hasnt hit me like the Ravin of 05 did. It was just awsome all black. But I would still own it.
