Guess what I just bought today?

If it helps - it's a F4i to you guys in the USA... :)

Traded in my Ninja on it. It's near new, the previous owner's had it in the garage and only done 3,000km (about 1,500 miles), it's mint.

It was an interesting bike to ride. When I first took it out, I was like - well, the injected motor is a thing of sweetness for responsiveness, but it sucks dogs balls in terms of power.

Then I got above 8krpm, and had to really hang on. Arse, it's quite rapid at the top end of the range. So, in relation to my old ZX600F3, it's not as urgent at low RPM, but pulls hard at the top - an acceptable sacrifice in my book.

And the handling! Damn, I'm now the corner god, this thing gives so much confidence, doesn't miss a beat, certainly makes up for the shocking rider on the back :D Put it anywhere, and it's like, "It's okay man, I got your back, nothing to worry about."

Anyway, just had to post, I'm well pleased with the new toy. Now if only my broken wrist (courtesy of my crash about two months back) would finish rehab, I could start really riding.

Ah hah, crap, got everything except the bit to the side :) Sorted that now, not only does my picture have a CBR, but my sportbike is listed right :D

Thanks man, it's a very cool bike, the thing I'm picking up about the Honda is how it all just works. It's a very finished product.
