Hey guys and gals, my name is Greg or BisTro and I'm from Ontario and yesterday I purchased my very first motorcycle! A new, 2016 Yamaha r3 (duh) in the white and red. I'm pumped but the bike is being ordered and this period between buying the bike and actually getting it is already killing me and it's only been one day! Anyways just wanted to introduce myself and say what's up! Can't wait to be apart of this community, gonna be a blast!

Congrats and welcome! I do like this new white and red colour scheme. I am also curious what your wait time is like.

My matte gray took almost 4 months to arrive. Hopefully yours goes smoother than mine.

That gives you plenty of time to start planning and buying mods. My fender eliminator and Coffman shorty exhaust were here 2 weeks before the bike. Since then I have added mirror extenders, blacked out the windscreen, installed reflective rim tape and a couple of other minor mods. Frame sliders are on the way and ordering spools and a few other goodies like LED signals as well.

yea LED signals and headlights, as well as tinting the windscreen are my first priorities. The bikes coming with a fender eliminator so thank god I won't have to ever look at that god awful rear fender

Find some instructions on YouTube for removing the windscreen. It is not as straight forward as you would think to remove it properly.
