Did someone say WOW? I second that. Get an 08 though you will love it. I sold my 05 r1, 3 yrs old to the month. 13000 miles, my 08 purchased new in Mid Nov, 2300 miles already. These things truly will run along time. Good friends had a 89 CBR1000, old school, 110000, and I adjusted the valves every 30k or 40K, screw and locknut, the intakes were always a little tight, exhausts loose, book called for adjustments like 8000 or something. He sold it to get a Busa, but was still running strong.JUST WOW!
