Hey guys,

Joined the forum yesterday, reading everything haha. Got my first R1 last year September, absolutely love her!! Have to ride at least once a day unless it raining (living in South Africa means no snow to face ). Its the bright blue colour, bought her stock. So im adding things whenever I can
Currently waiting for my integrated tail lights, flush mounts, crash bobbins and mirrors (have to wait 3 - 6 weeks and the wait it killing me!)

Love riding through traffic in the mornings, its like saying to all those who are stuck on four wheels hahaha.

will post some pics of her tomorrow

All the teddies were for a charity run, 1000's of bike do it all over SA.

Its all controlled, but a very chilled ride. Ended up next to a guy with an R1, looked exactly like mine, we kept complementing on the others bike, was tons of fun to see everyone pitch in like that
