Hello, all!

I've been lurking here for the better part of a year, but finally created an account. I've owned my 2017 CBR1000RR for a little over a year now, so it's no longer really "new," but it's still "my new bike." I bought it with about 9 miles on it in August of 2018. So far, I've added an Arrow slip-on exhaust and a basic tune using the Woolich Racing software. I'm looking to do a little more work on the tuning side in the near future (auto-tune being the big thing).

I've been riding for about 15 years now (26 years old now) and spent most of that time on my SV650. The step up from the SV to the 'Blade was... significant.

Good to meet you all!

Welcome Worm! Where ya from? Spent Xmas in Red Lodge, might go back for the Beartooth Hwy Ride...
I'm in Missoula right now; grew up around Townsend and went to college in Bozeman. I definitely miss the mountains around Bozeman, but the Western part of the state also has it's charms. Try our Highway 200 from Missoula through Seeley Lake or to Wolf Point next time you're around. It's a fun ride. Does get a little long though.

Sorry, I don't have any really good pictures since I put the exhaust on the bike. Those are about the two best I have.

However, I am extremely happy with the exhaust. It sounds amazing, it looks the part, and I definitely get more enjoyment out of riding with it on. It's very loud with the baffles out, but I can still ride without my ears ringing (I do always wear earplugs though). Unless you live in a motorcycle-friendly community, you'll probably drive a few people nuts, even at idle. It's like a race exhaust. With the baffles in, it's still pretty loud, but not obnoxious. Unless you have one of those neighbors (you know the ones), they won't complain.
The only thing I'm not a fan of is the exhaust clamp. It's really brittle, and it would be easy to fracture it when tightening it down. It's just a weird design. It's a compression clamp with a hex-drive socket cap screw.
