I am finally getting around to writing this thread, a HUGE thanks to all for your help, support, information, great prices and selling me some stunning bike tech and mods...you all know who you are...:thumbsup:

I first rode a bike back in the 80's and loved every minute, but crashed allot as I was only young and learning, I never got fully into it and it always took a back seat to my 4 wheel obsession.....Until 5 years ago that is....sick of paying through the nose for tax and fuel then watching the fuel vanish as I sat in traffic I was talking to a colleague one day and she convinced me to sell my car and buy a bike.....best thing I EVER DID!!

So I bought a brand new 2003 CB600 Hornet in 04 and my modifying addiction carried over from cars to bikes, with a number of friends into the the streetfighter scene in a big way and a few others working as engineers and mechanics I had all the help and inspiration I needed to turn

This:


eventually into this:


After 3 years of riding this bike and learning what I could and could not do with it, time came for something with a little more power and poise.

I test rode a number of bikes but only one caught my eye and with the build quality I had come to expect (from the Hornet) The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade was the only bike for me! I wanted the black and gray 07 new and could not find any near me

I wanted this:


in the end I found a great deal from a dealer in london delivered...3 days later and...

This arrived:


The above images is the only one I have of the stock bike fr two reasons, firstly I got on it and didnt stop riding for 4 hours, secondly as soon as I got home I started modifying it.

An Akra slip-on, R and G spools and a couple of carbon bits later:




After finding .net and spending a few HUNDRED hours reading and searching recommended mods and essential must fit requirements I got the lines fitted, a few more carbon bits, smoked screen, headlight covers, some trick bits here and there and a bargain set of BST's. This was a good few months after getting the bike and I threw a pic up on BOTM that gave me the November 2007 slot.

As it was:








A few more months, a few more payments to Brad, some Ohlins R and T's, TTX rear, a full Akra system to add more power and noise, Dynojet powercommander and Samco hoses:





Can you say BREMBO....brad sure can and once again a shipment from the US... add a couple of Rizoma billet res's and a digi gear indicator: (dont forget the Harris gas cap!)





A red hose here, Slave there, add a posh sprocket cover and a few gilles parts:





Changed my mind on the hugger and mudguard, needed some higher quality and found the Carbon Fiber works worked for me:

Ok so here is were it all got out of hand...carbon fibre madness...its a real disease I can prove it! See:











here is another part added to later be removed, after the lowside (with original fairings in place...not the carbon) I had a few small scratches on the frame and didnt want that to happen again so added MORE carbon:





How about some Carbon from Japan, a little Magical Racing and a woodcraft cover:





I already had the basic setup I wanted but now I added the final touches....Quickshifter, thumbrake, gilles yokes, gpr damper etc etc...anyway I decided I wanted to do more trackdays and as I had the race glass and slipper from BONERS bike (dont hate, its was all up for sale to you guys!! :thefinger:) I started organizing a spare set of wheels, fairing stay, upper harness, etc etc.... well this is where we finish with the bike in its two states:

RACE:









STREET:

I love it Dan!! Can I bother you to take a picture of the mount for the Ohlins dampener? I'm assuming it's only good for the RT's... oh, and didja get it from Beerad?

Its a GPR I have fitted, I had to mod the mount to get it to fit on the Gilles top tree, you can see the welded on piece in the image below.....thats not the only mod, its also machined on the bottom to fit over a section on the tree then powercoated to tidy it up again.
