What is a "FireBlade"?
The term "FireBlade" refers to all of the Honda CBR 900RR, 929RR, 954RR, and 1000RR motorcycles. In some countries, they actually have the FireBlade logo on them. This site was started in May 2001 as a place to discuss all aspects of these machines, which is where the site got its name. Later, as many of our members (including the site owner) moved on to other bikes, we decided to expand the site to cover other models.

What is the history of FireBlades.org?
FireBlades.org began as a site for the Honda CBR 900RR / Honda CBR 929RR / Honda CBR 954RR / Honda CBR 1000RR series or motorcycles(referred to as "FireBlade" in some countries), but has since expanded to cover all models of Honda Motorcycles, and even most other brands.
