Obviously i'm talking about the R1 50th Ann. Ed. the R1 is in a total different league with its ohlins and etc etc.
I don't know you from Adam so I have no idea how much you know about bikes, or where you found them. I've seen them referred to incorrectly and I'm sure others have also. :/:

Don't worry, I don't know you either. Nor do i know how much YOU know about bikes, or if you do know at all.

What i said was that when somebody says "R1 50th Anniversary Edition - they are talking about the regular R1, with the Yellow/Black Paint Job" & When they say "R1 LE - it's the R1 limited edition".

Now if somebody is calling them out incorrectly, then well - that's their fault.

Yamaha, Nada, KBB & Insurance companies all differentiate them as Yamaha R1, Yamaha R1 50th & Yamaha R1 LE:

I would go with gsxr1000 because of pricing and own one, excellent track/race bike, gear indicator, flushed signal lights, single sided exhaust, no browning plastic parts/lights. lower seat heights.

R1 pretty and fast too but sits too high for small guy like me. Bad part that I don't like is their 5 valve per cylinder.

Repsol, you are paying for a decal that makes it looks too nice to take it outside for others to sit on and scratch the heck out of it. When it is all nice and scratched up it's worth just like another 1000RR. Seat on the Honda are always hard. Make you feel like a pro when you ride a Honda.

Good Points.

GSXR1000 - i owned one (sadly for less then a week), loved the flushmount and gear indicator, sometimes these small perks come in handy! You know what other thing i love about the GSXR? It's Hazard lights - they work just like a cars!

R1 - i love it, but after owning 3 Yamahas, i really wanna try another Brand. But i don't think any bike can beat the R1's handling! Seat height is not an issue with me.

Repsol - Let's just say if i ever own a POS Honda , it will have to be a Repsol version, just like Rossi's. I always wanted a Honda Repsol since 2003 when Rossi started riding them, but when Honda fuked Rossi over with their Promise of giving him the bike and when they left on bad terms @ the end of the season, for some reason i started hating Hondas! It helps to add when they keep running out of GAS aswell.

But if i do get a Honda, its gonna be a RRRRPSOL

Dream combo eh? Italian Team, Italian Steed & an Italian Prince? What a match that would be.

Let's just hope i have the funds "then" to get an Italian steed myself. I just wish Ducati made an inline 4. :/:

How you been anyways? Fully recovered? Ready for the 08 season?

Thank You All for helping me in making a decision...

In the end i went with MotoHouston's popular pick...

The 2007 Honda Repsol 1000rr

Here she is:

y1pYraPgTFwllifvkXcpj3mAvypmlJIqWLIjCQa4FO6MCgYvV R7cvScouISWqSUvfcf1zFdMfB4pk

y1pYraPgTFwllj733OyygHFwHNcDBIr21SfiVmlo1pMYScMwSDkgxGEeRSkGq5lOQrbIL7FMssnJ9g

Now let's hope she can grow up to be like:

y1pYraPgTFwllh4BQaC4M5vlRUwwQ3sxSSMC38VhLWsbRN 1zpvuxrH9hzvcdEUd1814XHX8hoSLMQ
