Back on the road with an 06 1000rr

Hey guys, it`s been a while, but I recently bought an 06 1000rr! Was away in South America for four months and missed motorcycles so much I had to get one as soon as I got back. Bought one in the US and brought it back to Canada and saved a lot of money.

Only have been out for a couple of rides but so far there is a huge difference between my 954 and this. A lot more power, more solid suspension and brakes, more aggressive driving position, smoother engine, I love it. Although I loved my 954, I can tell this is a far superior bike and I can`t wait to get out on it more. Now only if it didn`t need 91 octane...

It`s fully stock right now, so I think I`ll focus on mods once our short riding season is over, just want to get out there for now. Will post up once I get into the mod mindset. Cheers.

Congrats pilotguy. Very nice ride. Enjoy it but be careful. For fuel I thought it said 89 or higher off the top of my head, no? I usually use midgrade 89 unless I've got some serious riding to do. lol
