i dont get the new web page changes so i had no idea you were paging me..
hahahha.. glad i stumbled onto this.
09 R1 is killer as a touring bike..
the reflash and full exhaust with full tune is probably the biggest plus when touring..
but seriously folks. mods are on my siggie. Bar risers, yamaha's own touring seat, adjustable pegs,
tall double bubble windscreen are all a good thing. This bike is built to be a ROAD BIKE, it doesnt
need much, but i like mine about 7mm taller in the rear, adjustable suspension link from SBUnlimited
does the trick. A good air filter is a plus, full synthetic oil for long service intervals. Fresh set of tires, GO!

I live in Canada, on the west coast. I tossed one in (taken locally) with saddle-bags on
my fuel map is usually a quick 5% re-tune where-ever i go.. i just save a copy of my local
map and accept AT Trims where I ride, then promptly swap back to my local map when i'm
headed back to town.
I purchased a stolen / recovered 2008 R1 from the local auctions. Its a statutory write off (due to VIN being removed) but perfect for my purpose which is to put the motor and electrics into a light weight car.

"DAVIE - One motorcyclist has died and another is recovering from critical injuries this morning after their bikes collided with a car that became engulfed in flames on Interstate 595 last night.
Yeah, Yeah, I know, it’s the particular one you ride. But is there a consensus among R1 aficionados if preferring one generation of the bike to another one? Ie nothing tops the ‘98 R1 or the 2016 R1M was a track beast, etc?
2012 r1 I was hit going 70 he pulled right out as I cracked throttle in 2nd. I stood up as my bike hit his Buick’s back drivers side door. Almost landed a front flip , landed on my back pack. Bike turned right off as I smashed into that pos Buick. I’m okay.. bike is not. I really want to post...
