Hey all...I am new to this forum. I just upgraded my 93 GSXR 1100 to a 2001 Yamaha R1. I can't believe the difference in power and handling. I know I will have a lot of questions. I hope to get some expert advice from all of you. Any pointers will definately help.

Thanks

It's all over.....once you ride "THE ONE!!" there is no returning to bikes that mere mortals ride.

Seriously...Welcome. There is a lot of useful info here and lots of great people who have helped my sorry A$$ many times.

This is what I have so far...

2001 Yamaha R1 Blue and white
6400 miles on this sucka.
Scott's steering damper
Mig - Hight mout exhaust. ( I didn't like the sound so I took it off)
I have purchased a vance and hines for my bike.

I usually ride with my Girl Friend (she has an R6)
we usually ride around town. Although I would like to start hitting the bike nights around the valley. (anyone know of some good ones in the San Fernando Valley?)

This is the only picture I have so far. Right now it's in the shop getting a tune up and adjustment ( to my specs)

adwises:
1. Never go to ride "the look out" on 74 (near Lake Elsinor)!
2. Avoide: Lear Towing (even if you are in the coma, never let then close to your bike)!
3. Avoide officer: Robert Hauoli Kwan, 19999 Promenade Cir, RIVERSIDE CA 92508, or he will have/buy your bike too.

GOOD LUCK:

Is it just me or does that look like 2000 fairings/paint? I thought the 01's went from the mid fairing up on the tank and yamaha got away from the 3d effect dashes.
