New Member - HEY!!!

Hi All,

Thought i'd introduce myself after lurking for a few weeks.

My Names Corbin, Im 24 and live in Melbourne, Australia. Im a photography Nut, Motorsport enthusiast and heavily into fitness training.

Recently purchased a 2007 R1. I absolutely love the bike, but more so enjoy the riding and seeing Melbourne through a new screen.


Will get some better pics at some point.

I have a few things i'd like to change off the bat, but i'll wait for the new year before making any purchases. Them pipes have to go!

English, motherfvcker, do you speak it?

You're welcome, man. Don't worry, you made the right decision. The 07/08 is a better build platform than my 06. Arguably the best R1 in the models history.
