Here is my wifes HRC coloured Blade with Galespeed wheels (she didnt like the gold wheels it came with), WP superbike spec shock, WP internals in the forks, akra exhaust & a few other bits & pieces. Black rearsets next & the brake hoses to fit. Pics are not great as they were taken with a phone.

I like the bike, but I am not a fan of the way the exhaust is with the newer blades. Colors are killer on the bike. enjoy it!!

She will probably tell me off.

The R1 pic was taken on a Yamaha test day in 2008
The 2nd pic is at Valencia WSB in 2008 on Gino Rea's superstock 600 bike. We were there as guests of the team.
Not too many pictures taken in 2009 as she has been recovering from a major accident involving her 08 Blade & an MPV but she is recovering pretty well. She gets a new finger joint next month (ouch!!)

Great idea. I like gold wheels but they look better on dark single colour bikes. They look good on the all black Blades - I painted some a while back.
The HRC paint is really good but I dont know what honda were thinking really. Hope you enjoy your new Blade (when we get some better weather)
