My first 2004 Yami R6 test ride

I went to my HS reunion this weekend which it was held at a club. My best friend rode his R6 to the reunion :bslap:. I have no clue what he was thinking if he was going to have 2 beers all night or what, but he drunk 2 beers and 2 cranberry vodka's. He was stumbling around by 1 am so I wouldn't let him ride his bike home. We all agreed we can't leave the R6 sitting downtown in the club parking lot. He has NEVER let anyone EVER ride his R6, muchless he doesn't like anyone else to sit on it. I told him I am sober enough to ride it to his house and get his car...he didn't know about all that. I had more to drink than him...I had 11 beers, and 1 shot yet I was in good shape. He made me walk a mile downtown while he stumbled the mile just to make sure I didn't stumble before I rode his bike home. I took him home in my truck, then we brung his car back. I jumped on the R6, while he drove his own car home. I took it easy while I was downtown just because of all the cops around. When I got on the bypass I just got on that beotch like no other! I see this bright shift light blinding me at 14k so I shift I look down and I am going 152 MPH :drool: This bike is so smooth and quick it just makes me :drool:. Once I get off the bypass and on to his street, I looked back and I lost my friend 5 miles ago so I :scratch: wheelie time :lol: He always says he can't get the bike to wheelie. Well I did, I didn't do anything major, just a small pop up, glad I let it down because a cop passed me like ten seconds later.
I have got to get this's the exact R6 I want, my friends has everything done to it performance wise so I know a stock R6 won't be quite that fast but I can just make mine that fast. :drool: I must have R6!! :dthumb:

Man o man... are one heck of a guy. You talk a tippy guy out of his bike and then rag the piss out of it... :lol:
He told me to get on it...he said this is your chance to see what the R6 will do and to see if this is what you really want.. He never got to ride anyone's R6 before he bought his. Which I've been wanting to ride that R6 since the day he bought it March of 04, but its just one of those things where you don't let anyone ride your bike.
I wonder if he's kickin himself today :lol: like WTF did I do last night :lol: I noticed he sent me an IM tonight at 9:00 but I didn't reply because I didn't get home from the 8 1/2 hour trip which I did in 7 hours and 45 minutes some how ..until 10:45, in which he was already signed off.

First, I have to say that I'm disappointed that you would ride after drinking. You may "think" you're okay to ride/drive, but the first thing affected by alcohol is the ability to think rationally. Second, you are correct in saying the R6 is one heck of a bike. I loved my 05 model and I'm looking forward to owning another one some day. Third, please don't drink and ride again. You survived this time, but please think of the other people you are putting in danger. Okay, I'm off the soap box.
I really didn't want to ride the bike to his house...just incase something happend. We really couldn't think of another way to get the bike home, leaving the bike downtown just clearly wasn't an option, he said he would wait until he sobered up...I wouldn't accept that, because once I left...he probably would have rode it home. I couldn't wait until he sobered up..I had to get on the road to come back to PA from Ky in the mid morning...I didn't get to my parents house until 4:30 am as it was. :cursin:
I do understand where you are comming from Capt, and I respect that, because I know I would say the same thing to someone else if they did this too. We were just out of ideas with solutions.
We couldn't load the bike in the truck because we had no ramp, and no hill close by at all.
I stopped drinking early because I knew I had to drive home. I wasn't planning on riding the R6 to my friends house, luckly he only lives 5 miles away or so. No one else there had experience riding a bike, except KantanMan, but he just doesn't have quite enough experience to jump on a R6. KatanaMan would have been ok also I think, he was about the same as I was alcohol wise...we spaced our drinks out thru the night, we started at 8p, and quite drinking about 12a or 1a. I didn't get home until 4:30.
