I have loved this bike since the day it come out, and I cannot believe that I actually own it. Its an 03 with 3400 miles that is in excellent shape, the previous owner took really good care of it. I had about an hour ride home on it and I fell in love with it even more. Words cannot express how happy I am, I feel like I could write a poem just about the ride home on this thing. I have been reading about tires on this site and noticed mine has the Bridgestone BT012's which I hope are a good tire. I am 6'2" 205 lbs can anyone point me in the right direction to setting up my suspention correctly?

Thanks for all the help in advance!! Alex

Okay, I was feeling you on this one until the poem idea came about! LOL I like the yellow, it is an awesome looking color on the RR. That bike looks perfect and the mileage is incredibly low too. Nice find, welcome to the best RR site on the web.

Thanks for all the replies guys. I paid 5500 for the bike which I hope was a good deal. I looked all over for along time but rarely saw one under 6 grand.
There are a few things that I want to get for it and I was thinking a dampner would be first. Has anyone been to Cornerspeed school at VIR? I am planning on signing up for a course or 2

Its not my first, I started on a Ninja 250 years ago and then went to a F2 for a while. I haven't had a bike for about 2 years and I was miserable without one. I have always been a fan of Honda even back in my dirt riding days, and when I saw the new RR's back in 03, I just new it was a matter of time before I would have to get one. It just took me a couple of years to find the right one I guess.
