HEIGHT 5ft 6in WEIGHT 75kg firstname.lastname@example.org I can happily sit on the wall at the Creg and watch the world go by for hours. You’ll see everything at the TT, sportsbikes, adventure bikes, dirt bikes and trikes which is why my little R6 seemed to be ignored by most race fans. I sat back and watch people walk past the new 2017 R6 without even taking a second look. However, as soon as they noticed it was a new R6 it attracted admirers like seagulls on dropped chips. I think most people think it’s an R1 or an old R6. It was interesting to see onlooker’s reactions once they realised it was a new R6. Everyone loved the look of the new bike – I didn’t meet anyone who disliked it. I think the new Akrapovic pipe has helped. I like the understated look, the matt black finish is lovely.
The R6 takes a well-earned break at the Creg
