What's your top speed? How far can you go on atank of gas? Do you have a power comander, does it work good? And how do you like it over all.

Top Speed: 157mph (Done on a track not the Hwy.)
Fuel Light comes on at about 120 miles.
No Power Commander since my 01 is carburated. Have helped a few guys with there PC3's and they seem to work great.
I love my R1 and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. (Except for maybe an 03 R1.)

thomasp,
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.

I hit an indicated 182 on my '02 between Yuma and Gila Bend, AZ. Pretty much the middle of nowhere. I have a Devil High-Mount Slip-on, PC III, K & N airfilter and homemade airbox modification. Bike runs awesome. Pulls like a mutha.... I also went down 1 tooth in the front. Just about to 28,000 miles now... :)

I have seen 172 indicated, on a hiway, not on a track.
As little as 80 miles on one tank and as much as 140.
I have a PCIII on my 02' obviously none on my 98'
I love both my R1's ... A LOT!

On Friday I raced an Audi S4 down US 27 in South Florida. I paced him up to 170, and passed him at 180+. I'm not sure how accurate the speedo is, but I'm running an oversize rear tire, so it should be close.
