Hi Jarrod here from Boston, been riding all my life. Most recently a 929 stock and also these two in the picture 03 Kawasaki Ninja 636 and 02 Suzuki GSXR600 Telefonica edition. I hope you like the front picture of the two bikes and now on to why I made this thread.. I put my deposit down at North Reading Honda in MA and I am purchasing this on Friday the bike will be in. A 2004 BLACK CBR1000RR it just sounds great! I own a business I started when I was 14 so I always research and do all my homework with follow-through and this forum is a great resource which I will share all of my tips with. So now when I go in on friday to purchase this bike is there anything I should know? When I bought the 03 Ninja I got $300 off my helmet and no deal on parts after my bike purchase. The bike came with seat and cowl. I paid MSRP for it and financed it to get good credit. Now I hear this 1000RR comes with a seat and no cowl unless you purchase it seperately? Please share your tips and strategies to get the most out of this 1000RR purchase. I will keep coming back to this forum because I LOVE HONDA and enjoying life. I still have my starter 94 XR80 and 98 CR125.
