The weather finally broke in Northern CA this weekend for me to get the new R1 out on the road and try her out. Very impressive! The bike handled awesome, sounds good even with the stock pipes and the engine was unreal...On my 98 the way I would roll on the throttle, the bike would just accelerate on out of the corner and with the new bike it broke the rear end loose a couple of times. the power is just awesome....More to follow.....

Some friends and I rode a mountain rode Sunday (7 miles with no side streets) and lots of good sweepers both ways . I rode his '03 R6 and he my R1 for about 4 passes . He would tote the frt wheel out of turns and once he just kept it up and rode it down about 100 yards to the next turn ...looked awesome from my perspective ...which was trying to keep up :bow
