Want smaller turning signals, just have no idea where to get decent looking ones, the ones I saw so far look crappy.

Here is the first batch. I have only 32 miles under my belt so far after picking it up late last night.

Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

Phadreus, thanks for the post. After only a few miles I can say that this bike is drastically different from my 2006. My previous bike was an 06 1000RR and I feel that the riding position has changed for the better. Compared to my 06 which I will say is the girl next door the 08 feels like you are riding a supermodel. The bike is narrower than a ZX-6R that I rode at a Keith Code School with handling that is razor sharp. The blacked out rearsets and passenger pegs complete the look and I will be replacing the clutch and brake levers soon to eliminate the originals. Lastly, the gauge cluster is pretty trick, while holding the select button and turning the ignition on your first option is to set the shift light for desired rpm and then you can set the type of light you want on blinking or constant to your tastes. I will deliver more once I have more seat time.

PEZ, Anything in particular you want a picture of? There is plenty of sun today and those pics from last night didn't turn out that well due to darkness.

Thanks, I get to make a request? You're the man! Well, I guess I'd like to see some pictures that show the areas of gray paint. It's kind of hard to tell where is gray and where is black. What do you think of the little like quarter moon wheel stripes? Are they reflective at night? How about under the seat, how big is that area? Thanks Nuclear Bee!

Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

Thanks for the link Litre Kid. There's a nice pic of the special edition in there. Man, I wish they had that in the UK. I'm gonna go for the B&W myself in lieu of the Black & Grey special. Will get the footrests and clutch/brake levers changed into black though. Still hate the fact that the engine cover on the UK model is broinze coloured though.

Im holding out for the LE black, but if I had the choice of the white it would be a tough decision for sure. Def the two sexiest colors!

Pez, There is going to be a delay in those requests. The shipper picked it up yesterday and is taking it back to New England for the summer. To comment on your requests, the undertail is roomy. Measuring 6" inches wide, 12" long and 6-7" inches deep. The rim stripes are not reflective and the best place to describe the grey is the plastic trim between the frame rails and the gas tank shell.
