Those who help me out earlier, thanks for your assistance :)

Well guys heres my Baby R1. It was a tough decision. I had my eye on the CBR1000RR and the GSXR 2004 1K( almost bought it). I mean i really was into both these bikes but finally, Red R1 won my heart. did i made a good choice? Used to be at r6messagenet.com but i guess i'll hang out with you guys now that we are in teh same boat. Ok do i need to know anything. 25 miles now.

Damn that looks hot!

I went jacket shopping yesterday. One of the dealers had that bike on the floor. No salesmen on the floor. It was just me and her, and they even had the fookin key in the ignition. I turned it on, and you can hear the Fi start up in the silent showroom floor. That's when I found out that the display has a kickass blue backlight. Damn I want my bike. :(

Just break her in right.
The first 2 oilchanges are critical.
I changed mine at 300, 600, 1000

Twist right hand = Faster :rock
Squeeze left hand = Slower :eek:

Yea, I'm loving my RED. Gotta download some more pics I took today.

435 Miles on it. I postphoned my first oil change, doh! Usually do it at about 250 - 300 miles.

Oh well. I'll prob wait till 600 now.
I've been riding quite aggressive with RPM's hitting in the 7000-8000 range (my shift light going on like mad), with a few runs up to about 10,000. NICE!

Nothing to laborous. The manual ONLY says: 0-600 mi NO prolonged REVS above 7000. Then from 600 - 1000 NO prolonged REVS above 8000.

so periodic quick bursts should be fine.

Yamaha made the instrument cluster Blue so that everyone who owned the silver and red R1's had a taste of the fastest One (Blue of course)!! :)

Excellent decision thought!! Red looks awesome, I can't wait to see it in person.
