I think the the R1 is an excellent choice for a first bike (almost as good as a ZX10), just make sure not to purchase a helmet until you decide this whole motorcycle thing is for you... :crash

I saw this squid yesterday walk out of a restaurant carrying his helmet, only to strap it to the tail and ride off. I was like :confused: I would like to nominate him for poser of the year.

Yep! Read it and weep! :finger

Complete Exhaust - 14lbs saved
Aluminum Clutch basket/Carbon Plates 3lbs saved
Shaved Crankshaft - 4lbs saved
520 Chain/Aluminum Sprockets - 2lbs saved
Marchesini Forged Aluminum Wheels - 7lbs saved
Sharkskinz Bodywork - 10lbs saved
Install Fairing-Stay/Remove Headlight Assembly - 10lbs saved
Nichols Flywheel - 4lbs saved

Total Weight Saved = 54lbs

999 Stock "WET" weight = 466lbs full of fuel------434lbs with tank empty
999T.E. NEW "WET" weight = 412lbs full of fuel-------380lbs with tank empty


Other ways to save weight:
Ducati Performance Lightweight Battery - 2lb savings
Carbon Fiber Fuel Tank - 9lb savings


WET WEIGHT COMPARISON

SV650S = 428lbs wet
CBR600RR = 430lbs wet
ZX-6R = 418lbs wet
GSX-R600 = 429lbs wet
YZF-R6 = 419lbs wet

Ducati 999 T.E. = 412lbs wet


If I decide to get the carbon fuel tank and the lightweight battery, the 999 will be 401lbs. And if I get Mag wheels down the road, it'll be around 397lbs.

Considering that I never ride with a full tank of gas when on the track, I'll spend most of my time under 400lbs wet.
