and take the MSF class, last young fellow in my class had already crashed his R1 into a building, now taking the class, he was worse then the other's cuz he was already afraid of the throttle.


For your info, I'm 32, been to 3 different countries, drove over there had no problems at all. You are only 6 yrs older than me and most likely been in only one country...... :laughing6

And I am NOT afraid of speed. 2 wheels or 4 wheels. This is my last reply to you. I don't wanna stoop down to your level. You are like a kid.

Never mentioned my age to you by the way, so don't go guessing ok? Now who's being immature now? Guessing one's age. 32 (thirty two) born 1973.

And why would in 's sake would I buy a bike to impress others?

I'm buying a bike cause I know my limits, I know I could handle an R1 not for show but a means of going around.

And you know why he crashed? It's because of people like you.... JINX..

don't worry about racer x, he just doesn't want to see you in the newpaper and another r1 in the junk yard. he means well and only wants you to become the best rider you can be safely. but i believe you can handle your , just don't get too cocky on that thing, and take it easy until you get used to every inch of the bike. enjoy the best bike in the world.

Thanx man... Just got ... If I don't think I can handle it then be it.. But I might as well try it, right? I think I'm old enough to know my capabilities...Thanx for your response... I'll be doing your advice man.. Will get a feel for the bike and enjoy the most out of it...

Brendan,
I can get you the Scotts for $403.00 or the GPs for $379.95, both are the same performance & quality.
The GPR is available in black, ti, red or blue if you're looking for something other than the gold color.

I agree with the "X" on this one. take MSF, it will do you a lot more good than a steering damper.

also remember that an expensive steering damper takes about 5 seconds to steal.

buzzz.......wrong. been to a few countries myslef, drove as fast as my auto would go on the autobahn as well.

2 wheels has very little to do w/ 4. and chances are you;ve never driven/ridden anything as fast as your R1

the 20's y.o. comment was the student in my class who rode his R1 into a building on his first ride.

You know what this is non-sense you are like a LITTLE GIRL,talking on and on,has to say the last word well this is my LAST reply to you. If you don't have nothing better to do then., wasted so much time answering to your bs.You don't know me so don't go asking about my limits.If I crash my bike be it, my anyway,never asked a single penny from you in buying the bike.You have a good life and one day you'll crash your bike too.
