A multi-colored combination is what you have here. BC and his bright garments sit atop the screaming-orange 2006 Honda CBR600RR.
He tries to be cool but the peace sign looked a bit more like a wave - dork - 2006 Honda CBR600RR
It's great when a street-legal bike like this 2006 Honda CBR600RR drop the hammer at a race track without even removing the plate.
Did we mention that ol Kenny really enjoyed the 2006 Honda CBR600RR?
Ken said that he really started to get a feel for our test track after a fast session aboard the 2006 Honda CBR600RR.

Here's BC running some helmet camera footage aboard the 2006 Honda CBR600RR.
Kevin Duke and the 2006 Honda CBR600RR - Everything about this pair screams 'Look-out, here we come!'
Roberti knows his way around the 2006 Honda CBR600RR.
Becklin tried to ride the 2006 Honda CBR600RR like a race horse but the CBR doesn't care - it just wants to go fast.
Out of the six, old reliable Honda provided the most compliant suspension package, as well as the best transmission and clutch.
It's worth noting that Hutch, our guy with the least experience on track, got his second-best lap of the weekend on the RR.
Sebastien Charpentier has been dominating World Supersport on a CBR600RR, so there's obviously loads of potential in the platform.
The Honda vaults to the top of the list of bikes we'd recommend to non-expert riders.
A highly experienced rider can wring out a better lap on some others, but a track-day newbie will feel more comfortable on the CBR.
Fast-guy Roberti had plenty of nice things to say about the CBR, but the amiable Honda loses ground on its competition due to its milder motor up top - the place it counts most when at the track.
Footpeg clearance issues limited its corner-speed potential for our experienced knee-sliders.
Perhaps the most impressive note about the '06 CBR in our test is that it demanded zero changes to its suspension or geometry from any of our five test riders.
The Honda is stable in the corners, with a solid and confidence-inspiring front-end feel.
