I am keeping the F4 for my daughter to ride. When we get another bike then husband, twin daughters and I can go out riding together.

Sorry!

Whatever!

I so like the R1. I was ready for a change but not sure of what I wanted. We went to 2 motorcycle dealers in the area and sat on a few. The R1 made the most sense. A nice step up from the 600 and power oh the power this bike has, so nice.

I have ordered the frame sliders and bar ends for the bike already. I would like to get the bracket to redo the tag, lights and such on the back.

I am having a hard time getting used to how far it leans over while on the kickstand. I am so afraid it is going to go over. I am still leary of it when I park the bike, that is one reason why I want the frame sliders on it NOW!

Flybyyou, what color did you get and when did you get yours?

Whatever!
