    My New Toy

    So I traded in my 2005 CBR600RR for this baby. So I took it out for a quick ride tonight. Oh My what a difference, I spun up the tire leaving a red light (by accident) What a difference in power......

    ...

    Everytime I see that body style/ suspension, I wonder (just a little) if I should have gone with the RR instead of the F4i. Granted , theres not much difference in power but the RR looks so sweet. any thoughts?

    My New Toy

    I loved my 600RR, but I just could not control my impulse buying urges with the 1000. I really like the RR body and looks

    Great bike. I really like the CBR's....they are not Yamaha's...but damn close I loved your 600, can't wait to see this one. I hav't seen any of the 06 Honda's in person yet. What dealer did you get it from (or did I miss that already)?

    I bought it at Sky Cycle, same as I did last year for my 600. I like the guys up there.

    The one thing that is very cool about the new bike is Honda has installed a Electronic Controlled steering dampner which adjusts itself based on speed and ammount of throttle twist

    If it's any concellation I did buy my 6 year old daughter a Yamaha pw50

    as a first year street rider I'm sure there's only two places you'd be able to feel the difference between the F4i and the 600rr... your bank account and your ass


    Dave, nice ride... when can I take it for a spin?

    My New Toy

    So you're saying you're not going to ride a new bike yet because it's too cold? If ya want I can do the break in for you so when it gets warm enough for you , You won't have to pussy around on on it

    The day I got my new bike it was cold raining and I didn't have plates for it so I only put 100 miles on it

    i would love to see a more indepth comparison of this thing with the 600... hows the weight feel in turns especially. perhaps you should let me borrow it for a bit so i can do a side by side comparo with the 600rr.

    I read a write up on the new RR...it shed 17lbs from the 2005 edition and is much improved. If I can find the write up again I will post a link
