First Ride - New 2006 CBR1000

Just picked up my brand new 06 CBR1000 today. Just thought I would mention this thing is scary fast. Tiny throttle inputs = huge rear tire output. Very different than the cruisers I have been riding for the last twelve years.



To make the first ride especially interesting I managed to get caught in a passing downpour about 3 miles from the dealership. Still managed to get home in one piece. Hoping, despite the weather reports, for good weather this weekend.

Ride safe.

Congrats. I just bought my '06 2 weeks ago and I'm at 400 miles now...just got to let it rip a couple days ago and it's scary fast!

Congrats! Yup, different than a cruiser for sure. Once you get 'er broken in, you'll really get to let her rip

Glad you like it. Now tell the fellow Harley Riders to stop trying to race me!
