Well, I bought my 900RR brand new in 1999.
I love the bike so much I just don't want to part with it. Before I bought it I looked at everything. Hayabusa (ugly) and to big, R-1, didn't feel right, Kawasaki. Nope. Loved the feel of the '99 CBR.
Keep looking at the latest and greatest out there, might buy something else new, but I still love my 900.
Will keep her around no matter what I buy.
Biggest headache so far, new tires for the 16" front wheel. Getting harder to find in any variety.
My 900 is stock except for a full race titanium Two Brothers Exhaust, steel braided brake lines, Targa rear deck instead of the seat, rear fender eliminator from Targa, Ignition advancer, Advance performance rearsets, Dunlop D208's, and a Hyper pro steering damper.
