Pics of the bike...

  1. I haven't posted in awhile, so I will try to put some pics of the bike up. Hopefully this will work, but if not bear with me...

    Oh and I have redone the rim tape since these pics have been taken, due to it being such a terrible job.
  2. wicked bike man , thanks for posting that erotic one twice ..
  3. Nice photography too. I put my Gixxer to winter hibernation yesterday <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Last photo from this summer.
  4. Ive said it before, for the money, it is probably the best bike in the world today.

    Its got the low end torque AND a crazy top end rush, superb street riding manners and bullet proof honda quality all over.
  5. Nice bike PGN1. I'm really liking your rims, did they come stock?

    Yeah Ron it's a great street bike that can still tear up the track. Once I get some extra cash I am going to try and do a track day.
  6. Well my brother got the 2008 suzuki 1000 this week and Im looking to get a 600 myself. Id probably end up getting the suzuki cause ill get a discount but i really want the 600rr to be honest.

    I just need time to get my license thing down but ive been busy as hell this month. ive had the permit for sometime but I just need to go down to the dmv. Hopefully next week...
  7. ^^Yeah you aren't the only one. I got my permit the beginning of the summer when I got my bike, but was in Ohio all summer so I couldn't get my license. Now that i'm back I should probably get it even though i've already put 8k miles on the bike. Check out the 09 600RR colors before you pick, they just put them up today!
  8. Standard K4 limited edition black/gold rims with zero gravity screen.

    The Micron is the latest addition, almost too loud and the hi-level restricts resting right foot on the foot rests... but I got it so cheap. (Didn't get decent video/sound recording done, so that has to wait for spring)

    I also bought a gear indicator with TRE -override (all gears now have mapping of the 5th gear which is supposedly optimal on entire rev range), but I didn't notice any difference in throttle response. The system also removes the speed limit on 6th gear (artificial rev limiter).

    Next up is changing the chain and sprockets, slightly taller final ratio for actual 300km/h. Maybe a new jacket...and boots... This is an expensive hobby... <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  9. I hear you on it being an expensive hobby. Right now I just have an FE kit on the rear, painted a few smaller fairings, and the heat shields black, frame sliders, and black clutch and brake levers. Plan on getting a zero grav smoked windscreen, flush mount blinkers, and possibly Jardine dual outlet exhaust. I know some tracks have a decibel limts though.

    The big mods probably won't come till I get out of college but that will be to relocate the rear brakes and change everything to Brembo, Ohlins suspension, rearsets,quickshifter,woodcraft covers, etc. I need lots of money first though.
  10. sexy...dream bike

  15. well it looks like some failed pose
  16. If you don't look at the R1
  17. Maybe a later model, but who would want to be seen on the new one?
  18. If you're into that kind of bike...
  19. If I wanted a sportbike for daily use, itd be the lightest one I could find and this honda is it (esp exhaust mods shave a lot of weight off).

    600cc is more than enough and I laugh when I hear people complain about their lack of torque. They have more than enough power for comfortable street riding.

    Then again, most of these bikes are so similar that its mostly preference, but the honda wins me over because of the amazing build quality and sheer flawlessness. All anyone can say against it is mostly subjective like looks or things like that.
  20. I have a friend who used to have the 05 gsxr600, sold it for a white 2007 RR last year and he still sings its praise about how the bike seems to be made to a different standard.

    Nice, I used to spend shitloads of time at tracking Paul46rider's progress in mods ( Great pics, but seriously man, invest in some leathers, knee sliders, and maybe some gloves. Making us Honda guys looking like some gixxer squids ><A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Of course this is a minority, but if you want to save your skin, literally, get some protection (trust me on this, you never know when you could get in a nasty situation). You'll also cut down a bit on drag. I'm a serious roadbiker and had an incident where I barely survived a 65 mph downhill crash (deer on the road). It didn't look pretty... Plus, the mentality that you won't crash is the wrong one. Yeah sure, lots of guys are good riders, but even a moto gp pro riding around on the street can get hit by some dumbass on a cell phone. When you go sideways on the ground even at 40 mph, you bet your ass you want leathers + other gear
  22. +1 on gearing up.

    I also agree on the Suzuki seeming maybe a bit more "ready to race" than the more consumer oriented quality Honda and Yamaha have... <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  23. For years Cycle mags & owners said the RR stood for Rattle Rattle from the annoying rattle the comes from the exhaust

    Trust me I already have a jacket, gloves, and boots. I only had them off since we were taking pics, then my buddy asked if I wanted any wheelie ones. I just jumped on real quick and did a few, if you look close you'll see I actually have my gloves on. Just too lazy to throw on the jacket for a few wheelies I guess. I'm a member of and cbrforums. I've never seen so many guys stress the importance of gear as CBRForums and I love it. I never hit the road without gear. I heard a quote from someone that was one of the best I've ever heard: Dress for the wreck, not for the ride.

    Also I would like to make it clear that I keep both wheels on the ground when on public roads. Nothing pisses me off more then seeing guys doing stand up wheelies down the highway furthering the bad rep we get already. That doesn't mean I don't like to get it low on some off ramps and curvy roads from time to time though!

    As far as being street friendly, I would agree the Suzuki's 1000 is more race track friendly then street, but as far as the 600's I would say the R6 is the one ready for the track out of the big 4 makers. Just my 2 cents.

    RR standing for rattle rattle? I can't say I have seen anyone complain once about exhaust rattle on the forums, nor can I after putting 7500+ miles on it this summer. 90% of the time an aftermarket exhaust is put on so I would hardly count that as a downside to the RRs. Of course my opinion is going to be a bit bias since I own one <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>.
