finally got my first liter bike. been a 600 rider for years. 2018 cbr1000rr, base of course, cause I couldn't justify spending the extra $4-5K for goodies that I'll never fully use, like Brembos and Ohlins. But so far I'm really loving this girl. Not my first Honda, though. My first sportbike was an '06 cbr600rr, then moved to an '08 600rr. Then went to a '06 Kawasaki zx6363 for a while, but have always been eyeballing the liter bikes. So I traded the 636 in for this 1000 and I have not even thought about looking back... and while I hear a few negative things about all the technology built into the new generation, I've become quite fond of it. as of right now I have only put about 600 miles on her and the only mods are the usual stuff, tail tidy, zero gravity and spools. will be sending the ecu out to have Paul Kingburgh flash it. then I'll do the slip on and an air filter. but the most important upgrade will be to get these sketchy Dunlops off and replace them with some Michelin 2ct's. this pic is from 3 days after I got her.
