I got my 03 R1 back in January. This bike rocks. The looks are
just unreal. I'm not a speed demond, so I've only had it up to
maybe 130 or so. If you just cruise the bike does good on gas.
I'd say the low to mid 40 mpg. My fuel light comes on around
160 or so miles. I just put on a Scorpion highmount exhaust
on it. The sound is great, not super loud. Just that sweet mellow
tone throughout the power curve. On the Scorpion the PC3 is
not required. It runs great without it. If you go with a full system
then the PC3 is a must. Over all I'm soooo in love with my R1.
You just have to have good throttle control over the bike. The
front tire likes to leave the ground in first gear, but you can
control it. Nice and easy to flick in the curves, nibble and light.
Safety first!!! Then smoke his Ass!!!
