Recent convert from GSX-R's to CBR's

How's it going everyone. A little backstory on me: I got my first bike (2007 GSX-R600) in July of this year and learned how to ride on it. Took the MSF course and now have my M1 license as of September. Love riding and cannot live without it now. I have always been into bikes but didn't think I was responsible enough to ride until I was a little older and have always owned fast cars. I've owned '07 Civic Si Sedan, '06 WRX STi, 2010 Evo X, '06 Evo IX and most recent was an '08 Corvette ZO6.

I just bought my '12 CBR 600RR on Wednesday of last week and it is LEAPS and BOUNDS above what I expected. Everything is better then the GSX-R so far other then the space under the back seat lol. So glad I converted and don't see myself buying any other manufacture given the flickability and nimbleness of the CBR's. def in love and happy to be part of the community. Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the site, congrats on the new Honda!

For AWD the Evo IX takes the cake hands down, for overall car, the ZO6 no question and I will own one along with a bike once I pay down some bills lol.

Vtec just kicked in Yo! Lol. That thing was fun because you could hit redline every shift and still get 22-24mpg. It was a cop magnet even stock though. Def miss my ZO6 the most and will have to get another.

Thanks much! Happy to be here and absolutely loving the bike.

Haha, I don't have a good pic of the new bike and its stock with the ugly turn signals and god awful rear fender (should be handled soon lol).

I got lucky and started working at a good small company 7 years ago and it has paid nicely for all the toys I could want for now. If I didn't get so lucky when I was 20 I wouldn't have had the chance to experience all the cars I have. Def lucky!

Welcome, congrats on joining the CBR club and more importantly the dot net. Very impressive list of cars. I have always felt the Evo 9 is better than the 10 in ever way, am I right? No shame in posting stock CBR pics.

Great taste in cars and bikes! I have always been a corvette fan and have had the opportunity to drive many of them; One being the 08 Z06. That car was a beauty! If I get the opportunity to buy one it will be a JSB too.

Get pictures of the bike up when you can!
