Pic of Gary’s 2010 Yamaha R1 From Down Unda!

Here is a picture of our mate Gary’s R1 from The Out Back! It’s long over due, and we apologize for the darn near half year delay, but definitely wanted to share his pics of his new 2010 R1!

Gary, thanks for your continued support and for joining us as an R1 Insider. It’s been cool as h3ll reading your emails and hearing your stories from Down Unda (hope I got that right!?). Anyways, we Texans have mad respect for you Aussies so cheers to you and yours. Now for the email you sent in back in July of 2012:

Thanks Robert  Free support for the R1 Thank You.

Love this bike so much, I have carbon fibre pipes on it now and it goes like a rocket. Haven’t really been able to use all the house power it has as the roads in Brisbane are in bad repair after the flood. Also I’m worried about losing my license on it, and that would kill me. Believe me when I say that this could have happen so many times now, but I’ve been lucky.

I’m always clicking up to the next gear and backing off in amazement of the power it has.

I’ve read the reviews and I don’t care what they say, this bike is all that I want.

Excellent workmanship and I only wish we could build something like this here in Australia. 

Plugs this weekend and a new K&N air filter, I’m going to be in trouble.

Cheers Gary

Something For Our Female Audience

R1Videos has been coming up short when it comes to getting some interesting coverage for our female audience – that sucks, sorry! Yes, 10% (and growing) of our readers are females, but so far, 0% of our content has covered anything for all you gals out there that own, ride, race, or just have an interest in the world of sportbiking. That’s all gonna change because we definitely don’t wanna leave out the ladies!

To get things started off, we were lucky enough to catch up with CMRA racer Megan Wanat who we will be featuring in a series over the course of many posts to come. So while she is busy answering some of our interview questions and filling us in on her journey into the sport of racing and the world of motorcycling, be sure to check out her videos on the DistinctR6 YouTube channel.  There will be plenty more to come so check back!

Also, if you are a female that would like to help educate us all on your love for and experiences in sportbiking, shoot us an email at: Robert at R1Videos . com

Stay visible everyone!

Question From R1 Insider Answered

As an R1 Insider, you can send in your questions and we will do our best to get you the answers. Sign up to be an R1 Insider and then you can send us your pics, a description of your problem, and your video (if you post it to YouTube and send us a link). We get tons of emails so two things you should know:  1. We can’t always get back to you within the same day (one day, this might change) 2. We can’t answer every question 100%, but we can give you tips, advice, and a general idea of what the fix might be.

No reason I can think of at all not to be an R1 Insider. We won’t blow up your inbox and we will never share your info. Ever. Also, as we grow the R1 Insider club out, we will make it more and more valuable to everyone that signs up. We just need to figure out ways to make it kick ass. One way is your ability to have Q and A with us (R1 Insiders’ questions get bumped up to the top of the list). Here is an actual example.

Question:

Hey what’s up Robert. I don’t know if you have this on your list of videos, but is there any way you can do a video on setting suspension? I don’t know if there is a predetermined setting on the front or back or both for different weight categories, but if there is and you know them, that would be super helpful. Shiny side up! – Brandon (R1 Insider)

Answer:

There is no generic set up for everyone. I would recommend a book, “Sportbike Suspension Tuning” by Andrew Trevitt. Or take it to a suspension guy and have it set up for your riding style. However, every track will have different settings and different road riding will require changes as well. – Todd (R1 Videos)

It’s that easy to “Get Your Fix!”
