1 Year Anniversary

Today marks the day that I've had my bike for a year. It's definitely something i'm sooo glad I did. I never thought I would have a sportbike at this young of an age, especially a 1000cc bike. I've put a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears since then and still will continue to. I've done plenty of mods to it (I bought it completely stock), which are in my sig.

Thanks. When I bought it, it has around 4500 miles on it. It now has around 9000 miles, I didn't really think I rode it that much.

I have never seen that color before. Reminds me of when the GSXr 750 came in that color.

If your first bike is a superbike, I wonder what you will want to ride when you actually start to feel like you know what you are doing.

gsxr>cbr: It's a factory color combo. It's Candy Glory Red/Silver, I know there are other guys on here that have it too. I can tell you one thing is once I get another bike it definitely won't be any GSX-R. I probably will get another 1000RR, just a different body style (Which will be a while). I also wouldn't mind getting a ZX-10R, a R1, or other non-Suzuki 1000cc sportbikes. I can also promise you it won't be a ZX-14R or a Busa.


needmoretires: The helmet is an Icon Variant. And it doesn't at all, even when I took it up to 130 MPH a couple of times. Other people on the forum have them and can vouch for me saying that it isn't bad.

I was just about to ask about that! I want one sooo bad, but I don't wanna get it and be very disappointed lol! So at higher speeds that visor doesn't want to make your head fly off??

Jmnismo: No it doesn't. Icon designed it to flow air very good and it doesn't mess with your head at higher speeds. Now if you turn your head at highway speeds, it does kinda jerk your head (But what helmet doesn't). I had a little problem at first on spending $400 for a helmet, but it was definitely worth it in the end.

I haven't owned my new 2012 1000rr for more than 7 months and i already have almost 7000 on it. I bought it with 0 miles on it lol.

Anyhow, congrats on the year! I know how happy i was when i hit my first year with my old cbr.
