Well, I finally got an RR. I joined this site about a year ago and under the advice of some of you, especially F4i Guy (thanks!) rode a naked 400 for a while before moving up. I picked it up on Saturday and put about 100km on it between then and today. At first I thought it wasn't the rocket I imagined, until I noticed it felt like time to shift into second at about double the speed limit. :icon_lol: I seemed to get that under control today. Oops.

I had the dealer put on a Mugen slip-on, get rid of the horrendous mud flap, slap on the solo cowl, tape the wheels and put a link in to drop it down about 1" for me - yes, I'm a shorty. Sticker price was US$7100 and after the tax, registration, insurance and mods it came to US$9000, which I was quite happy with since I got it from an authentic Honda dealer so it gets an extra 1-year on the warranty (2 standard + 1 from dealer).

I took a few pics yesterday, but the lighting was brutal and I couldn't really be bothered doing that when I could be riding it. Here they are:











Looking forward to learning a lot more about the bike from you all!

Yeah slaps, don't worry about the post I wrote - the pics say a lot more.

I was going to get Moriwaki frame sliders, but didn't. Might get them on later. The lights are staying as is - dealer told me that even if you get non-flushmount lights, the area of the light could be a legal issue in case of an accident. I might get a different rearset - not sure what to get, but Aratas look nice. I need to do something about the clutch - my fingers are short and my wrist was killing me after the first ride - I don't think I'm putting weight on it, it's just from stretching fingers to pull in the clutch.

you can always get pazzo or CRG levers which should be adjustable for the clutch.

Thanks, Moeman, I've got the gear and will just be commuting for the first few weeks. I'll take it out to the hills once I have a littel more experience on it. Thanks for the tip on the levers, ME2.

I got this exciting equipment with it without asking - thought I wouldn't for an 06:



Here's a better pic of the back without the glare:

hey sweet ride mate! btw, you mentioned you lowered your bike? a friend of mine is a real shorty and wants to know how to drop it an inch or two.

what is this 'put a link in to drop it down about 1"' and is this mod expensive?
