Hello everyone I have been lurking here in the shadows finding useful information. So I thought I might as well join. I have been off bikes for 10 years but have always had an itch to get back on the street and the track. I owned a couple of Suzuki’s and Honda’s back in the day. I always wanted a Yamaha just never had the right deal at the right time. This time I had a few bucks and I got a really good price on a 04 R1. I just took it for it’s first ride. Wow is all I got to say very nimble and power is great. I can’t wait to build it for track as it sits mostly stock. That’s about it I like motorcycles and I find this site very useful to help me build this bike.
