somewhere along the line of software updates to the forum, I missed/screwed-up the "anti-spam" settings.

Unfortunately, this meant that new members could not post :-( 

The software was supposed to ask a couple questions to make sure you were not a spambot, but.... well.....  no matter how human you are, it would not let you post :0 

Now, new members should not have to go through that to post.

Hey, I did not write the forum software...   I just struggle to operate it.
Shooting the bull / Tesla cars involved in 16 cras...

QuoteA U.S. investigation into Tesla vehicles operating on partially automated driving systems that have crashed into parked emergency vehicles has moved a step closer to a recall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday that it is upgrading the probe to an engineering analysis, another sign of increased scrutiny of the electric vehicle maker and automated systems that perform at least some driving tasks. An engineering analysis is the final stage of an investigation, and in most cases NHTSA decides within a year if there should be a recall or the probe should be closed.

QuoteThe first crash involving a motorcyclist happened at 4:47 a.m. July 7 on State Route 91, a freeway in Riverside, California. A white Tesla Model Y SUV was traveling east in the high occupancy vehicle lane. Ahead of it was a rider on a green Yamaha V-Star motorcycle, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement.
At some point, the vehicles collided, and the unidentified motorcyclist was ejected from the Yamaha. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Fire Department.

Whether or not the Tesla was operating on Autopilot remains under investigation, a CHP spokesman said.
The second crash happened about 1:09 a.m. July 24 on Interstate 15 near Draper, Utah. A Tesla Model 3 sedan was behind a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, also in an HOV lane. "The driver of the Tesla did not see the motorcyclist and collided with the back of the motorcycle, which threw the rider from the bike," the Utah Department of Public Safety said in a prepared statement.

The four-day motorcycle rally attracts motorcycle enthusiasts to Daytona Beach and Volusia County area with beautiful Florida weather, live music, industry's top vendors, bike shows, motorcycle racing at Daytona International Speedway, and miles of scenic rides along famous A1A, historic Main Street or the scenic loop.

Daytona Beach is celebrating a significant milestone in 2022 with the 30th annual Biketoberfest® rally on October 13-16, Southeast's best motorcycle rally.

For the 10th straight year, GEICO will serve as the official sponsor of Biketoberfest®.

"For three decades, motorcycle enthusiasts have gathered by the thousands in October in Daytona Beach for Biketoberfest® and we're looking forward to continuing that tradition in 2022," said Lori Campbell Baker, Executive Director for the Daytona Beach Area CVB. "With venues stretching from iconic Main Street, Daytona International Speedway, Destination Daytona, Midtown, and points in between, riders will be able to explore a variety of activities and experiences during their visit to the destination."

The Official Biketoberfest® Welcome Center presented by GEICO will be at ONE DAYTONA, located directly across from Daytona International Speedway (One Daytona Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114). Along with information about the area, the Welcome Center will be handing out free posters, pins, poker chips and helmet stickers for visitors.

As motorcycle enthusiasts explore the area, they will want to make sure to check out Downtown Daytona Beach and the recently opened south end of the Riverfront Esplanade where they can visit the Veterans Memorial and the Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune bronze statue. When fully complete later this year, the Riverfront Esplanade will extend a mile along the Halifax River and include a promenade along the water's edge, running and walking rails, and landscaping designed to encourage relaxation and reflection including water features, shade tree and raised botanical gardens.

More information is available on the official event website,, including a list of area events, concerts, demo rides, places to stay, top scenic rides, and more.

I hate to admit this but I am too old (48) and cannot use this bike to its potential. I would like to see my R6 go to someone who can use it to Win races. This is one of the best motos I have ever raced. It has been the fastest of its class in every event I have raced and it is the most reliable, best handing moto I have ever experienced. I have been racing and winning for a long time, I have experience to tell you this bike is amazing and with no issues. Asking $15,999 It is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida


Here are some people on this forum you may know who can vouch for me and this R6:

    Gino Angella Gino230

    Stefano Mesa (@stefano37)
    Bob Fisher
    GRod GarrettRick

If you are looking for a turn key full race setup I would entertain selling my Custom  Trailer (insulated), Pit Scooter (Zuma), Generator, Tools, Warmers, Tents, Fans...... everything in the race trailer. You could hookup and pull to the track and need nothing.

Please feel free to PM me for my Cell # I will be happy to answer any questions you have. Or better to email me -Jason Edmonds

Note the tabs

I have a new slider and cover as a spare if you cant stand the scratch.

The discoloration is a bubble under the paint were the MR12 got under.
The tank is in perfect condition not repaired. Only cosmetic (paint).
