New around here, Oldskool 1st gen R1 guy

952 9
Well it seems I need 25 posts to do the ole PM'ing and for sale-ing, so here it goes with the spamming, lol.

I own a 2008 1098s candy red (street duty),

a 2007 S4RS white (damged, soon to be fully parted)

a 1998 R1 white/red candy race bike (done up nicely with CMC rotors, Brembo 'real' monoblocs, Ohlins, Keihin FCR's, adjustable triples, yadda yadda....)



I've really come to love the 1098 after owning and selling newer litre bikes. I've been a fan of the early carbed R1's for years because of the power delivery and the 'smack you in the face' bottom end and midrange, but I think I may have stumbled upon something that can truly replace my old dinosaur (I'd never sell the R1, owners of the 1st gen probably know where I'm coming from here but alas I ramble on.....)

I'll post some pics soon enough.

My wife absolutely loves her 2000 R1 and has put over 30,000 miles on it in the last two years. I like the bike a lot, too....so much that after we bought it, I almost sold my 748 to go buy one....
