    I guess I gotta change my name now??

    After a few months of bike shopping I am picking up my 06 cbr 1000rr tomorrow!! Took care of the insurance side of things today. So now Hopefully this snow melts as fast as it fell. I was pretty set on a ducati 848 and found a fantastic deal on one with 800 or so miles at all star cycles in Marlboro, it was such a good deal that it was sold after a week and before I got a chance to call on it. Long story short a black fairly low miles cbr caught my eye, extra clean with some real tasteful mods. Pics to come!!


    I can say all star is great to deal with and I highly recommend them, I paid a little more then I should of but I don't think I'll ever see another 06 this clean.

    Nice bike, Mike!

    Too bad, though. Green is still the faster color.

    That place is just down the street from me and I've never been. I guess I should go check it out.

    Re: I guess I gotta change my name now??

    Well it's official, I picked up my cbr a few hours ago!! If anyone is looking for a new bike then go to all star cycles and talk to Sergio( I in no way stand to gain anything just wanna spread a good word), they have a great selection and a large inventory even dirty toys too.

    I still can't believe that bike is mine, given its 9 years old but you'd never know it by looking at it, it's got roughly 8k miles on it which is almost exactly what I put on my zx6 just over this summer.

    This weekend I am gonna go through it, set all the controls and suspension for me and with any luck there will be a 40 degree day soon so I can put a few miles on it. I got a feeling I'm gonna be changing rear tires a lot now that I have a liter bike, it's got the regular pilot powers on it now but I'll be ordering a set of power 3's soon cause I been really wanting to try them out. anyone know of any sales at the moment?

    I've got a ton of street parts if you need anything, integrated tail light, flushmount blinkers, etc...

    It already has that stuff, the p.o. actually did some nice tasteful basic mods. At this point the only thing I need is a power commander, until I start putting some miles on it that is!!!

    what is everyone's obsession with a power commander???? Does it not make enough power for you stock?

    Save the money and buy some good gear if you dont already have some.

    It has nothing to do with the power, well a little bit, but mainly because I have a full exhaust system and I also want to be able to optimize my fuel ratio for a smoother running motor. More power is just an added benefit

    I also have almost 2 complete sets of full gear so I'm pretty covered there, literally

    Ok.. I guess I shouldnt be too skeptical. I just know I have put aftermarket pipes on bikes and gutten catalytic converters and seen no different in idol or smoothness of throttle.

    I've witnessed the benefits of a power commander on a few different bikes.

    It's amazing how shitty a bike can run with the wrong fueling...
