I hope this here forum won´t degrade into some sort of "church of the R1-faithful" like the first incarnation of the swedish Fireblade Club. They wouldn´t recognize the fact that the R1 had the ´Blade beaten. I really would like an GSX R1000, but I´ll stick with my old R1 until the right GSX R1000 comes along. What good would an all-R1 meeting do? I think some kind of sportbike-meet would be more fun. Don´t be so narrow-minded folks, there are a lot of great bikes out there! Aprilia RS250, anyone?
