So the time has come to say goodbye...

I'm parting with my 02 Red R1 this afternoon. She has been good to me and taken me on many advertures... with-out her, I would have never met my beautiful, and wonderfull girlfriend... or the great group of guys (including the R1 forum) that are attracted by this sport.

ohh.. I'm gonna have a moment.. here... Toalk amungsts yourselves...

Arrrrgghh!

On the positive side... I sold her well... 17000 miles, only upgrades were: K&N, Devil hi-mount, Ohlins damper. Clean.
$7900.00

and now, "excuse me, there's someone I need to get in touch with.... (barely able to speak) Myself..."

sorry to hear that man, but look at the bright side you met your girlfriend and you rode the piss out of that bike and you still got 7900 hundred for that pretty good and a really good down payment on the 04 R1

LOL.... I like the "rode the piss out of it expression" haa.haa..

Yes I did, but I took very good care of her also.

and yes, 7900 is an excellent price to sell an R1..hee.hee..he.hee.


as far as the 04 goes... I don't know... something about the bike I just don't dig.

I may consider a track bike maybe 6 months down the line..

Thanks Guys :hellobye

Yeah... the guy left with my baby a couple of hours ago...

It was hard saying goodbye .. it's been a real thrill to own the R-1

Thankfully, I made the journey (17000K miles)safely.. ok, a couple of close calls but safe in the end.

Like I said, at this point I don't know if I'm going to buy another R1, I'm thinking of going to dirt for a couple of years, but I'll keep my eye out for a good track bike.
