New R1 rider from VA

I don't know how you guys do it over here, but on the GSX-R forum I usually use we like the new members to introduce themselves a little bit before they start posting all willy-nilly on everything, so here it goes... I've been riding dirt bikes since I was 15 (everything from a 1970's MX360 to an XR-80 or a YZ-250) but just convinced myself it was time to get a streetbike about 2 1/2 years ago, so I picked up a 2006 GSX-R600. After putting 20k+ and 3 new sets of tires on her since then, I figured it was more than time enough for an upgrade! So I began my search, and finally decided on a 2004 R1. She's a beauty, with 16k miles and basically bone stock, save for braided brake lines, adjustable levers and a custom Chrysler "Brilliant Black" paint job. I had never ridden a 1k of any brand before I test rode her, but the difference between this and my 600 was night and day. I knew I had to bring her home after that, so I figured what better way to learn more about my new lady than from fellow riders. So my ears are open, I hope you guys will help me with my journey with my new obsession!

Anyways, enough talking... I know you people really only showed up for the pics.

Sounds good man, I'll keep you posted, should be a few of us riding this Saturday. The shop is right off 145 near 288, so maybe a 40 minute ride for you. We usually do a little of everything, some interstate/main roads and back roads.

Welcome, sweet bike brother, looks clean!!!! Enjoy the forum, best bike forum on the net.

Edit: Btw, thanks for the pics. 04-06 are my favorite sports bike of all time. You have a real gem there and you'll love the insane powerbank from 7k up. It's just sick.
