2 days until I get my 1000!

It's been about 16 months now since I sold my 954 and I finally decided to pick up another bike. I found a leftover '06 (0 miles) for $8850 which seems like a damn good deal to me. Especially since I bought a 929 back in 2000 for $10K. So my progression is:
'93 EX500, '91 ZX6, '00 929 (stolen), '02 954, and now an '06 1000RR...I can't explain how excited I am to go pick it up. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the stupid break-in period

Re: 2 days until I get my 1000!

Wow,,,congrats on the new bike and I am interested in how do you like your new 1000 over your 954. Your 929 stolen , that had to suck. On well i am sure you are watching the hours on the clock. The only thing I can suggest is takening something to knock you out when you goto bed , because if your anything like me you will up all night thinking about it.

+1 on the fugly fender ass...embly. I got a Shock f/e kit and I like that it has the "RR" stamped in the steel. Good luck with the new 1KRR.

Re: 2 days until I get my 1000!

congrats on the new bike

What is it with 900rr's, 929RR's and 954RR's being stolen so often? I'd be interested to know which modern sportbikes do not get stolen so often.

I will partially blame Honda for a poor ignition switch design. There should be a metal cover instead of plastic around the actuall switch. This is why i say lock the bike down to something stationary/solid.

Nothing to do with the ignition,could be made of kryptonite and it would not matter. 2 guys lifting a bike into the back of a van or truck is all it takes .

Re: 2 days until I get my 1000!

Well I got back last night and I must say that the trip sucked! My previous longest ride was about 150 miles and the 300 yesterday was horrible. My neck was really sore but that's probably b/c I haven't ridden in a while. Anyways, the bike looks great and I can tell it hauls ass. I've only had it up to 7K rpms and now I'm technically done with the breakin period. My plan is to change the oil/filter and then see what she can really do. I'll post pics later.

300 on the highway is uncomfortable, but 300 on a back road you will not be sore
