Its good you got a new bike, bad it was a yami. But thats ok, i understand if you can't handle the power of the gixxer. NO REALLy it is a beatiful bike. I really like that one a lot. I was goign to buy the 02 r1s adn out of all the colors i was going to stay with teh blue. I think its the best looking one still even compared to the silver. I think everyone wants something different because blue is old. BUT IT IS NICE! Don't crash it!!! I had a 99 r1 and rode the piss out of it. Good bike, good luck
Ian, you make me laugh. Just because i posted my pic of my new bike you think you have to rip me apart everytime. Are you that unsure of your own abilities on your own bike you think you have to say somethign negative toward me all the time. I think the r1 is a great bike. IF I HAD WANTED ONE I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT ONE> DEAL WITH IT> Having said that, i do like the pic. I love the undertail. Its like you already have eurotail installed because its painted underneath. NICE BIKE!
