So while i was HANGING for restrictions to end and tossing up and comparing bike after bike on all the bike sale sites and the forums almost daily for the last 6 months of my restrictions, FINALLY the restrictions are coming closer to their painfully long existence and I purchased one of my favorite bikes. 2007 Yamaha R1....in the sexiest scheme of them all imo! It always sat near the top of the list along side K7/8 GSX-R 1000, 08 1K Blade, and a little left of center, the Aprillia RSV1000R. But as an all round package, and my favorite looking of all, the R1 won It helped that it was priced VERY well with good KM's too! As you can see in the pics, It's in IMMACULATE condition, as close to factory as you'd find 4.5 years on, as it's never been layed down even stationary, and is totally stock...just the way i like to buy bikes! List of mods to come include: (some i already have but still to fit) Fender elim, factory cowl, Yoshi carbon 3/4 system + PC V and tune, BMC, DB tinted screen, flushmount front indicators, black shortie levers, and possibly black rearsets down the line. Look forward to getting out on some NR rides! Cheers, sw.
