  4. Yes that is the correct answer.
    looks like Blackbirds are really out of fasion.
    Our two most prominant XX Riders are moving to something a little lighter.
  5. What have you done?? :shock:

    Hope you enjoy the new toy mate.
  6. Staying with Honda then?

    Pics please.

    By the way, congrats on getting a new bike!
  7. It's still a Honda, Tweet, it'll be ok, he'll get a sore ass when he goes for a long ride, then he'll want another Bird, and will have to wait till 2009 for the new one...

    Congrats on the new ride, Raven

  19. awesome!!! congrats john !

    so i guess the upgraded suspension on the bird didnt cut it. would be great to see you on one of those thing up at the spur!!

    c ya on the spur

  20. Congrats on the new bike John!

    I still think you should've taken a 675 for a ride at least though.

    Today, I took a ZX636 (2002) model bike out for a blat (loaner bike while my bike is being serviced). Oh my. The 675's midrange makes the 636's motor feel weak as piss, and the 636 is meant to be one of the better super-sport I4's for mid-range. :shock:

    Edit: Oh - just realised that you had bought a 1000RR, and not a 600RR. Don't mind me then. Good job!
