So i picked my new R1 up yesterday evening, only had chance to ride her home and now I've spent a couple of hours today getting used to her….

How do i compare my new R1 to my Cbr600rr?? Well thats simple, you can't there just worlds apart…

Riding home was a little scary, brand new tyres and all that power comes a bit of a shock so getting home last night in one piece was my goal. Out early this morning, weather was sunny but very cold but one thing that really surprised me is how well it takes corners, it feels like its just planted to the road and nothing could possibly interrupt its path. This gave me great confidence and surly when the warm weather arrives next year I'll be knee dragging around even the sharpest bends. The power is just immense even though i have her set on Standard Mode and I've finally found what I've been missing "mid range power", thank you lord…..

Ive really enjoyed myself today and I'm in no doubt that its going to take me some time and many miles of riding before i get used to her or put her in A Mode. Oh and did i mention the noise, even with two standard pipes the sound is like thunder, i could listen to that noise day in day out for the rest of my life and die happy….

sounds awesome, I really want a 1000 now, I want to see what all this fuss is about mid-range power lol.

are you going to get the suspension properly set for yourself?

I'll hopefully get to hear it next season

Mate i rode all the way through Wigan where i got it from in 1st gear, it was so smooth but i did nearly poop myself today riding out to Northwich. On a dual carriage way i was plodding along at 65mph in 4th gear, ( i know i was in 4th because the gear indicator was telling me) when an M3 flew past me. I thought fvck that and opened the throttle, to my complete shock the front wheel starts lifting off the ground. Won't be doing that again in a hurry. On the way back i put it in A mode (sport mode) and after about half a mile i decided to switch it back to standard, far to much power just yet...

The mid range is out of this world, trust me, whichever 1000 you go with whether it be a Blade, R1 or ZXR you will love it. Don't get me wrong the 600rr is a great bike but it feels like ive just gone from a Civic type r to an M5...

I will be changing the cans first mate when i have some money...

Nice , I've just put my tri colour 600rr back to standard and will be putting it up for sale shortly, either going for a repsol blade or a zx10r I think . Had 3 600rr's and an r6 so time to see what all the fuss is about :-)

Does anyone race oulton park? You may see rochdale honda's main bloke racing a fireblade...I like chatting to him he actually knows what he's talking about
Ive been around Oulton Park a few times mate, although ive not been there for sometime now, about 12 years. Websters a small bike shop in Crewe used to drive their van around the track after each race picking up the crashed bikes ready for the next race and i would be onboard the van. Loved every minuet of it as i got to miix it in the paddock with the racers..

We would arrive early and were allowed to do a few laps on our own bikes, the last time i did this i had an FZR 400......

I shall try and get there a few times next years as its not far....

Heres some pictures from the bike show, there not the best as my picture taking skill are rubbish...

I will say i loved the bike show, i felt like a child in the worlds biggest sweet shop, and if your ever going to buy gear like leathers, boots or gloves wait for the bike show. J&S were selling all there this year stock off for peanuts, Alpinestar boots for 40, full leathers for 100........
