2006 CBR 1000rr









i own a 2006 cbr1000rr and i love it. been on some long trips with it, ran it up some twisties and tried doing some wheelies (still not use to it). overall it is a great bike. When i was in the market it took me a few months to find out what i wanted. i rode the 06 gsxr1000 and it was badass.. then the honda 1000rr.. i even took a few cruisers out. i sat on a few bikes like the zx10r and it didn't feel comfortable so in the end it was the 1000rr. just check out the quality, feel, and performance of each bike and see what you like.

Just got my first 1k (yesterday) and love it can't wait to hit some back roads on sunday. Just see if you can try a couple of different models and go from there. The RC 51 is a V-twin like the Ducks out there and you may want to ask Brutus about them on the power delivery. The MSf info is located herehttp://www.motohouston.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8017
personally i'd get the RC 51 for the cool factor :icon_bigg
