Greetings, I'm new to fireblades.org & making my first post here. I just picked up my new yellow & black "08 CBR1000RR 4 days ago & I've certainly got no regrets. My last bike was an "03 CBR600RR & I've got to say the new bike is definitely more flickable than the old which is quite an accomplishment for the Honda engineers. I've got only 170 miles on the clock so far (late winter/ early spring in northeast Ohio) & am keeping the revs under 6k & the chicken strips intact until the engine is broken in & until the weather warms up, respectively. I'm 49 years old & this is the 5th road bike I've owned. Ive tallied up about 120,000 miles over the years & take pilgrimages to the twisties of southern Ohio & West Virginia several times a year. No track riding to date but I really should do some (esp. with the new blade). Any other new CBR1000RR owners out there. I would appreciate hearing your stories.
