Reserector from across the pond

Post  Reserector on Fri Nov 18 2011, 18:35

My name is Mark. I live in Laurel Mississippi, USA, and have ridden to work in Bay Springs every day since I bought my cat on June 10th. That's five days a week at 65 miles round trip. I have clocked 10,0000 miles from then until now, and have no intentions of letting up. I do have a truck that I can drive if weather gets too hostile.

I recently bought my '03 Yamaha YZF600RR (ThunderCat) as a commuter. At least that is how I explained it to my wife. green smile

I was told about this forum by Oldcat, who visited http://yzf600r-usa.com recently.

I own a few forums of my own, in fact. http://mississippi-mud.com and http://southernskater.com , and I invite y'all to check those out if you are into off-road trucks, or roller skating.

You talk as if you don't ride in roller skates. scratch

As for the color, blue is the official color. Just as Marlboro cigarette packs are red and white. Marlboro lights are some other color... just like the red and black YZFs. They are like...... YZF lights or something. Wink

Rosco also has trouble pushing the right buttons most of the time ; P

Just looked at the pics again and noticed those wind deflectors you have on the side of the nose cone. Are they home made? Never seen anything like them, great idea

O.K. I'll admit that the rollerskates was a promo shot for skating site. It was intended to be silly. Smile

The wind deflectors are in a How-To thread on yzf600r-usa.com I will dig up the link when I get a moment. Got to run out the door tight now. Wink

Thanks. Here is the thread from the very top.
The wind deflectors have proven to be a favored low cost modification that is easily removed for when hot weather returns.
