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 finally gave up my 2007 r1 (and i still love it to this day), it was time to upgrade but i never really liked the 09-14 models so i desperately started looking for 2016 60th anniversary edition but couldn't find one and finally landed on the idea of purchasing a new bike. Ive been riding for...
I’ve read and watch videos where they have said good things and bad things about lowering your bike. I’m 5’8” and I’d like to have my feet flat when sitting on the bike. Might have to go down 2” not sure till I measure it. I’ve seen people say lowering it you also have to adjust the rear...
