  1. G'day all,

    Been reading the nr forum for a little while and finally decided to join and say hi, I have recently got my licence at 29 after many years riding dirt bikes and just upgraded from a cbr300 to a 15 R1 and have barely been off it since! Also a big fan of all two wheel racing including the TT which I went to last year...

    Anyway looking forward to hopefully meeting some new people to talk all things two wheels and to go for a ride with.

  9. Cheers, so far so good it's surprisingly easy to ride, its more the self restraint that's challenging than anything else... I think I will take it to a few track days to open it up a bit

  11. As you probably know, it's very, very important to free-up the engine components of a machine like the R1 with a solid track-day thrashing...

  12. Most definitely XJ6NXJ6N, a machine like the R1 needs to be set free in its natural environment... I'm sure I heard someone knowledgable say something about 'she wants to go faster' :cool:

  14. It's just that you don't want it to be hearing your own voice with the prefix "Honestly, officer...".
  15. Welcome AllllllR1AllllllR1 and nice bike. There are a few of us here that do track days together at Eastern Creek so keep an eye out in the motorsport / track days area and get in on it. Its looking like the next one will be early June.
  16. Very true, Haha actually very similar to the cbr300 I had with a straight through pipe... HD in disguise!
  17. Yes I definitely don't want that speech to need to be used although 'she' couldn't care less!

  20. Cheers mate,

    Yeah the TT was awesome although now I've been I def want to go again, I'd also recommend hiring a bike for the two weeks nearly everyone who goes rides in from Europe and half the circuit has no speed limit when it's a public road!
