its got a lot to do with your age bracket and location
as for the article, i love the blade, if i ever decided to bump up to a liter i would strongly consider one
yea two things I can't change haha, well 1800 isn't end of the world, just not really affordable now as well as the buying of the blade, i did a car insurance quote once, car was worth £500....they quoted me over £12000

SA Security(Armed Response, Firearms, AVSEC, Grade B)
Full Car/Bike, Daily Rider(600RR) Daily Driver(BMW 3 Series)
When I get a Fireblade, I'm definitely going to get an Arrow exhaust. I really like the TT Legends and HRC models. They are so f**king sick looking! And the Repsol models are obviously super sick as well. Its going to be an interesting spring and summer.
But I can't believe how much insurance some of you guys pay :| holy smoked!
I'm still kinda stuck on the 1199, but will be demo riding a few and see what happens. But they are sooooo expensive and insane to maintain, so if I got one I'd be broke as f**k, LOL!
