My son's R6 in black with gold wheels is the best looking bike I have ever seen

trying a post from photobucket oof son's R6
<a href="http://s1162.photobucket.com/albums/q536/oldsawfiler/?action=view&amp;current=P1010118.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q536/oldsawfiler/P1010118.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">[/url]

Hmm, suprised they don't have BBcode in the share box there. To post a pic, just get the raw url, copy it from the browser. It looks like this:
Code: [Select]
http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q536/oldsawfiler/P1010118.jpg
Then hit the picture button, it the left-most second row, just below the "B", and it gives you this:
Code: [Select]
[img][/img]
Now just paste into the middle of that like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q536/oldsawfiler/P1010118.jpg[/img]
And the result:
Smart people look like crazy people to stupid people.

IMHO..The black R6 with the gold rims is "Sick"...The whole color scheme looks just like the Mario Andretti J.P.S. Formula 1 car from the '70's.... I stripped my front wheel with automotive paint remover from NAPA. Underneath was a beautifull polished aluminum wheel. Clear coated it and now it matches my Mean Streak rear nicely....

I was really thinking about gold or bronze, but I chickened out and went with a boring gloss black.  Hopefully I will be picking them up Tomorrow.
