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….
