Hi All

New to the whole Fireblade experience. So new in fact that I don't even have one yet, but I have decided to get a 1992/3 CBR900RR.

Had a few bikes in the past, many Hondas incl CX500 which became a cafe race, a rolling restoration of a GL1000 Gold Wing, a XR600 and my current Africa Twin RD03 which is being restored.

Other makes have mainly been enduro / trail bikes from Yamaha, Suzuki and Triumph. The Old ball is a Yamaha MT01 which I still have.

No doubt Ill have a few questions in the coming weeks as the only thing Im sure about at this stage is that I will be red white and blue to match the RD03 - sad i know

Chris

Re: Newbie

I don't think the MT01 was available in the States, the Blade shown here is one I nearly got this week,but unfortunately the VIN number has been ground off..
