I live in Las Vages and two days ago I went to purchase an R1. Come to find out there are no 04 R1's to be purchased and every dealership is Vegas is sold out until April. Let alone they will want nearly $11k for one. Well, can't wait, so instead I got a gixxer1000. Sorry guys, I had to settle for less. Someday I will catch up to you guys . . . Be safe.

Well...what year did you get...color etc? If I were to be in the market for a new bike like that...I would be waiting till the prices come down on them. I want to see what the new G1k in 05 will have...I already have a G1k...which I hardly ride anymore...they are great bikes and you can't go wrong with either the R1 or the G1k. Good luck with your bike!! :hellobye

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the 1k bikes from the last few years. As long as you got what you want, ride and be happy.

Welcome to the forum. :fact Congrats on the Zook purchase. The
bike is a screamer, so becareful on it. If I had the money I would
have a sport bike from all of the big four.

Sorry to hear about that. Not because it was a Zook but because you compromised on what you wanted. Hope you still enjoy it.

yamahas catch my eye. undertail exhaust is the wave of the future, but if you have a bike then you ride the bike when you are in love on a bike then it is the ONE. (THE R1) or gixxer

congrad on the new bike dawg hope to see you on the road soon:thumbup

Welcome!
I traded my 2001 GSX1000R for my 2002 R1. In all honesty, I missed the gut wrenching power the GSX had. The 1 is way to sexy to give up. I'm happy the 04's now has the power to beat my old GSX.
