Hello to all and what a great site.
My friends recently nick named me The Silver Bullet for two reasons; I just recently purchased a Silver 2008 600RR and I am probably a few years older than the average sport bike rider. I have been riding motorcycles since my dad first put me on a minibike at around the age of five. I went to dirt bikes until I got my drivers license. Since then I have been riding cruisers (read Harley Davidsons).
Though I am still a few years away from my "mid-life crisis", I wanted a new bike that was light, easy to ride, reliable and got good gas mileage. A friend of mines son had a CBR600RR and let me ride it. What a ride and I just had to have one.
Though it is my first experience on a sport bike and I have no experience on other brands or models, this has to be the most fun I have ever had on a motorcycle. The power, acceleration, handling and braking is incredible.
Very soon after purchasing, I discovered your web site. The "How to's" are wonderfull. The down side is that now I have the modification bug. I have began to do a few things but you can imagine what my Christmas list looks like.
Thanks again.

being older has its advantages. Have alot more money than say me (the college broke student) to mod the bike..because it is addicting..
