New CBR!!!

WOW. I just brought home my new CBR F4i. I've ridden dirt bikes and (don't yell at me) Harleys but never a sport bike. In fact my Harley is my daily driver (100 mile commute). But OMFG this Honda is incredible!!! I didn't know it could be THIS FUN!!! I think it's time to sign up for the advanced rider course though. I feel too comfortable too soon... if you know what I mean. Looks like I'll be hanging around for awhile!

With previous riding experience outside of sportbikes, it's easy to get complacent. Know your limitations and stay within them. Getting too comfortable too quick can lead to a very uncomfortable stretcher real quick. Trust me I know

oh, btw... Nice bike choice

Yeah good bike choice, going from a cruiser to a Honda. The seating postion is easier to get used to. Do you notice a big defference in cornering and handling?

You couldn't have picked a better bike, can't loose with a Honda.

Thanks. I'm not sure what you mean by SBN. Sportbikeworld.net and Sportbikeworld.com seem to point to the same site. If that's what you mean then yes... same Deuce.

Apples and oranges difference between the two. I still prefer the Deuce for my commute. It's much more comfortable. But when it's time for the twisties...
