Yep, ran a 10 mile run, hard but not all o ut. The last couple miles we both got really agressive. He was a Gen 1 GSXR1000 with full system, Powercomander and K&N. When i realized it was for real i opened it up @ bout 165 with a 4th gear downshift. Left his ass. By the time I was in the upper 170's he was 6 bikes back and gave up.

NIce! Hey Hide, Just out of curiosity, does the new R1 have the dual headlights on all the time? Or is it just one headlight on all the time and the other one turns on when you hit the high beams like the newer bikes? Im still waiting for mine.

Hey man my wife and I cruised on the 04 today. (I picked it up yesterday) We have a 2000 that we are used to. I noticed that she did slide into me a little more than she used to. She also said that either the passenger seat is alittle lower or the pegs are higher because her knees were bent alittle more. She also said that it vibrates through the pegs more than the 00. But that the ride feels great. To me the ride feels awesome! Smooth! Yet powerful!

I saw a Gixxer yesterday at the gas station. He pulled out before I did, once I hit the road I ran it hard through 3rd and he was nowhere to be seen.

OH maybe next time im in a small Town KY i'll say "Only gen 2 gsxr 1000s can ride today". Common, he was there and showing me the road. He knew it, i didnt. Not only that but neither of us were going all out except that burst. I also shifted at about 11,800 or so. He said he short shifted about 500 rpm too.
