Just bought Blue 2008 R1 !!!!!!!!

I am new to this Forum and I just got this 2008 R1.I wanted to share it with everyone. I love this bike, I used have 2004 r6 and I sold it because it wasn't fast enough. So please give me some ideas what i should do. I end up paying 12k OTD with 400 dollars of gift card. I live in Michigan in Detroit and i have to wait 3 more months to ride my baby. I can't wait.

Nice.
If you want more low-end drop a tooth up front.
So far I have done the following performance mods to wake my 07 R1,
16T AFAM front sprocket
Akrapovic Carbon Fiber slip-on with catless Y-pipe
K&N air filter
Ivan's smog block-off plates
Powercommander 3 USB.
Also Ohlins steering damper.
All the other mods I have done are for looks.

You sold your R6 because is was not fast enough?

1st investment you should make is some riding classes to learn how to ride.
Im feeling negative energy:bash ..
I think he meant more power, either way r1 is the faster bike if you really want to get technical..

Oh yeah back to topic, sweet bike bro! :fork
