1. See how far you can wheelie it.
2. Race anything that moves from stoplight to stoplight.
3. Brag non stop about how you are cool and have the best bike around.
4. Pose.
5. Bet all your friends you will crash within the next couple of months. (You'll probably win this bet)
6. Get life insurance.
7. Get more life insurance. (You are a great investment )
8. Wash it.
9. Do burnouts, burnouts = chick magnet
10. More stunts ! ! Stoppies are always a crowd pleaser.
11. Brag that the GSXR1000 is a pussy bike, and after 700 miles it felt slow.
12. Leave it in the Garage, you might lose the bet though
13. Enhance it's performance, it's slow remember ?
14. Impress young children, Kids love wheelies ...
15. Pick up chicks... Chicks love bikes.

Need I go on ?
That should keep you busy for a while , but if you need more suggestions please ask.

Ya I bet you made some new friends.

Don't you think the bike is a little overkill in the power department ? I mean if you sneeze will you end up on your back ?

well when i go down the highway and hit bumps, it does jerk the bike because the throttle is so sensitive and loose.

What to do?!?

Man, after that sucker's broen in, Take it to the track, and GO LIKE HELL!! Wheelies are always cool, careful though, I hear the 1000 is a beast.

And Squid, I'm really impressed. No, SERIOUSLY!! It'd take me all day to think of all those squidly things to do.

Ride Safe

E~

If they're psychic, why didn't they know you were coming?

Umm, are you like 12 years old? (Looks like it from the pics.)

Also, why are your rear footpegs down with the rear seat cowl on? Lemme guess, you were going down the highway, lying down, and had your feet propped back on the rear pegs?
