I was just curious how the 02 R-1 is performing in the real world against the GSXR1000? We ran into a Silver 02 R-1 last Saturday in Sacramento and the guy was riding it like crazy trying to get it fully broken in and seemed to be impressed with it over his 00 R-1!

Key word "real world".

Used by some magazines (convetional and online) to pick a bike as being the best that is not the GSXR1000 :D

I saw a new R1 the other day. Guy was wearing short, shirt, helmet. I wanted to catch up to him and ask him if I could have his bike when he wrecked it because he damn sure wouldn't ever ride again. SQUID!!!!

If you can ride they are the same thing on the street depending on the rider. 929, Gixxer, R1, TL, RC they are all fast and will beat one another. 2% of the people that buy them will ever get to take any of these to there extreme max on publis roads and get away with.

If you like the bike buy it. If you have to be the one in front all the time, learn how to ride.

do you people ever drive without your seat belt on? are you considered a squid?

who cares if he is riding to store with no shirt and driving home 2 miles? if he isn't pushin it who cares? do you walk down the streey with a helmet? why not , thats crazy, a car could jump the curb and rack you up. now if he was doing one handed wheelies and 180 degree stoppies thats another story.

YZROOSTINYA, riding a bike without a helmet is much more of a risk than walking down the street. It may not be his fault but when the minivan pulls out in front of him, he'd want that helmet strapped to his rear seat on his head. Most accidents happen within.....I won't even say anything more. It's not worth arguing with you man.

P.S. I always wear my seatbelt.

yzfroostinya, i laid my bike down once, and it occurred with brand new tires (literally, still had stickers and had just put them on last night and rode 1/8 mile home on 25 mph roads. the next day i pulledo ut of my road, a little sh!tty rollin it on cause of a rough morning (family fight) woops, slid right out from under me pulling out of my fn road 8am, little moist cause of morning dew in the summers on ny, jeans jacket gloves helmet, no touch to the helmet, but i rashed my knee through my pants a lil bit (not even remotely bad to some of the thigns i've seen), scuffed my gloves (kangaroo hide:) teknics) and scuffed the elbow and back of my jacket- t shirt and shorts and this would have been a serious problem, no kidding around. things can go wrong anywhere, didn't i read an odd story about boogieman in relation to an incident near his house? things always go wrong when you don't expect it buddy think about it

you seek up an emotion sometiems your world is dry

I am here to tell you if it wasn't for my helmet I wouldn't be here today. I hit hard enough to put a six inch crack in my helmet. I will always wear my helmet. And by the way I also always wear my seatbelt!

You will not leave the wildman alone. If he say's that his 955i will walk away from R1's and gixxer 1000's, then it will damn it! That's the reason that they don't test the 955i with all the other open class bikes. They don't want to show up the big bikes. Com-on it's common knowledge that the 955i is a faster bike. LOL!!!

Who said anything about riding without a helmet? Personally, I don't ride my bike without protective gear on, but I think too many of you guys are quick to use the term "squid", but will never give a complete definition of the term. I can bet my life that most of you name-callers don't follow the law 100% when it comes to riding.

It's not necesarilly breaking the law that makes you a squid, squids just happen to break the law often. It's a matter of being unsafe; no helmet, open toed sandals, shorts, and things like that. Be safe and wear your gear.
