    I just won a 2002 R1 on eBay! It's silver-gray/black setup. I went and looked at it and test road it a little bit today and its damn near PERFECT shape and rides awesome. Previously I had a GSX-R 600 so this should be a nice step up in power :D

    Heres the only pic of it I have (from ebay auction), but I'll snap some more once I bring it home here in the next day or two (gotta borrow my buddies truck, and its finals week so I'm swamped lol).:nonono:

    It has a power Commander, velocity stacks, CF intake covers, low-profile shorty front turn signals, and a Two Brothers X-Metal carbon fiber slip on - oh and new tires and only 10k miles :nice:

    I know it's not a stang, but its ****ing fast :jaw:

    hahahahaha race his zx 10 lol u wont be happy with the results the zx10 powns all.

    ill race ya with my 636 lol i have yet to lose to an r1 on the strip lol. because all the liter bike guys i race on stock arm suck at riding. they figured a liter bike would be enough and a 600 wouldnt and yet they cant use the power of that liter bike to take down a 636 lol.

    good looking bike though man. be safe with it.:nice:

    Heh yeah, I'm not into racing too much on bikes. I took my Katana to the track and ran low 12's, so that was fun I guess lol... I agree don't under estimate a 600, I had alot of fun on my GSX-R and learned to ride quite well.

    The R1 will see mostly around town and highway miles, I have a 50 mile (round trip) commute for school and usually another 25 to 30 a day just dicking around lol... Not to mention 400-500 mile rides on the weekends :nice:

    Best part about all of this is the guy who I'm getting it from has an 03 DSG Cobra vert!! :flag: And he wanted the wheels I had for sale so we settled on a good deal that benefited both of us :D

    Sweet Benny! Very nice bike....you will definatly like it at first, but it MAY get old after a while. Iv riden my busa like once in the past 4 months....im just not too big on it. I do like to ride on occasion though.
    I mean it is fun and its rediculously fast, but I really have more fun driving my turbo mustang. I just keep it to ride with friends some when its warm.

    But I hope your not like me and the newness doesnt wear off too quick.

    Cool. As odd as it seems, I'm too big a wuss to even bother trying to ride a bike, let alone a fast one. Ppl often give me weird looks whenever I tell them that, considering the kind of car I drive. but I feel so much more secure in a car, even if it is fast.

    Heh, I really just enjoy riding - being outdoors, with friends, going retarded fast ;) I hit the twisties as well, there are loads of great flat land turns around here, as well as great hills and canyons to carve down south :nice:

    Oh man I was the same way until I started riding. I said "**** THAT!" :eek: But...once I got a bike between my legs it was a match made in heaven lol... I actually feel more in control on a bike (most of the time) than I do in a car - mainly because on a bike I'm waaay more focused and don't do as much stupid and careless stuff.

    LOL yeah my girlfriend hates me for it :rlaugh: It's funny, the dude I bought this bike from didn't want to sell it but they just had a baby earlier this year and his wife was like "No more riding, no more wheelies." :nonono: But oh well, that makes me a happy camper and I got a great bike at an AWESOME price :flag:

    Heres pics safe and sound in my garage! They are too large to post in pic format so just follow the link...
