Hey there honda folk. I switched over to yamaha this year and picked up an R6. I made the switch cuz i thought the yammy looked nicer. Always wanted 2 lights up front and I liked the color scheme to. But boy do the mirrors suck. Some f**king car squeezed between me and the sidewalk to make a right. I never seen him coming. With the F3 mirros it would stand out big time that a cars coming. Other problem is when you make slow tight turns. The bars come too close to the tank. I had to kick out my leg to keep from dropping it, cuz i couldn't turn the bars all the way. My forearms would hit the tank. If honda changes its look in next couple years im going back.

I can now also add fastening the fairings back onto the bike as a gripe. Not to mention that this bike gets dirty fast. Dont ask me how but my honda just didnt get dirty so fast. Ok yamaha fans the bike is quick and does handle great but im sure the honda isnt a slouch there either. One other point i got is that in midcorner the front end lifted up couple inches and bike did a little shake. This was at 180km/h in an easy corner. (obviously) This little'n shake never happened with my old honda. :-( May God have mercy on me.

That new F4i looks wild. Silver and black is the way i would go. I hear that the new CBR's come with a catalytic converter and O2 sensor now??? what with that!
