New rider on the streets...

Hello just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is David and I own a 2016 R3 in Matte Grey color. She had about 2,300 miles when I bought her used (Dec. 2018), and the bike has a cool story behind it all. I believe sometime in early 2016 Yoshimura wanted to design a race exhaust for the R3. So being the awesome company they are, Yamaha decided to setup a new R3 to send over to Yoshimura for a new race exhaust install/photoshoot. Yamaha not only generously loaned out the R3, they added every single accessory for the R3 available as well to make sure the bike looked its best. After Yoshimura designed the race exhaust, the ended up slapping on a Y-Series exhaust before they sent the bike back to Yamaha. The R3 was then sold to the owner before me during a friends and family event with Yamaha, ever since then the bike was barely used and very well cared for. My E3 is the exact one pictured on the Yoshimura website, and there's also a few videos on YouTube of them running the bike with a race exhaust. Glad to be a part of the forum to learn and share riding experiences.
