Just sayin HI. Newbie here from Los Angeles. I just bought a leftover 2002 CBR 954RR and I'm lovin it, although I'm still in the break-in period. Of course I got the faster red and black! My previous bike was a Suzuki TLR (prior to that was a CBR 600F3). I loved that v-twin growl but I just couldn't take the heat coming off of that rear cylinder anymore so that's why I traded it in on the 954. Looking forward to learning a lot about the 954/Fireblade!
