I would think that either Yamaha or someone that works for Yamaha has # 1.

I got #15 which I believe is the lowest on this forum

I have # 0
No limited for me

When I got home, I anxiously opened the package, stepped back a few feet, and waited for the bar to back flip off of the table and jump into my mouth. The bar just sat there. I couldn't understand: the packaging said "X-TREME" but the Soynut bar seemed incapable of mountain biking.

Just turned 20,000 on mine, don't remember when I bought it but I'm triing to put 100,000 on her BTW I have #505 I think Todd Colbert had #535 when he had his but don't remember for sure.

I think Yamaha should put together a list to see who has what number and something like what state they are in, that would be pretty sweet!

I think ...1 mile = 1.609 kilometers
Then ....... 10,000 km = 6,215 m

i was guessing around 6200, so close enough for me. i ask about the miles because there are so many people around me saying, "i can't believe you're putting miles on the champions edition."

i really just think they are jealous because they don't have one.

#387/1000 here. i guess there arent any except in the states and canada? i have seen two others on the road, i parked and talked to the guy, and 1 in a guys garage. so ive only seen a total of 4 in the last two riding seasons. from what i can tell the #s stick together in the state they were sold in. mine came from nc down by #388 who replied above.

these were only offered in the states/canada. japan didn't get any because they like the standards better than the sport bikes.

ain't it kewl owning something unique?

probably the main reason i can't bring myself to sell my '97yzf1000.

Angry saw 1000

I bought #989 at anderson's in pontiac michigan, 2 weeks later i roll in to pick up my plate, all proud of the limited edition r1 and guess what new bike they had sitting there. THE GODDAMN 1000/1000!!!! still i was proud of my bike, but 2 weeks and this was in october of 2001. i couldn't figure out how it wasn't sold yet, still never seen it around town?

Experience is a wonderful thing, It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again

Out of the original 1000, how many do you guys figure are left after people have totalled them? I wonder if there is a way to find out.
