Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by dastrix, Jun 5, 2009.

  1. So last Friday I picked up my 09 Honda CBR1000RR after riding a CBR600F for a little while.. Bit of a night/day difference really! The Blade is so easy to ride and enjoyable... once that flap in the exhaust opens it sounds very tough :D

    Fitted a R&G Tail Tidy, Yoshi Cotton Reels and have a rear seat cowl and windscreen coming eventually.. Geelong Carbon tank protector to go on tonight...

    <3 that new bike smell!
    even if they tell me that smell is formeldehyde and is a known carcinogen, meh, WHATEVER. NEW BIKES ROCK

    purdy bike.
    it's won a shitload of bike-of-the-year contests, so good choice.

    of course, it'd be a shit-load COOLER if you pried those geeky reflectors off it :)

    i see you went with the Hornee kevlar pants
    after finding Draggins a bit too bright, i bought a pair too. done me well, so far
  19. Thanks champ ;)

    Yeah, ill get the reflectors off eventually ;D
