Thumbs up Manson's new ride - Honda CBR 954rr

An evening hanging out with the regulars, and in a few weeks I have a new ride. This was sweet, and happened much faster than the Thunderace. But even the three odd weeks without a bike always made me rethink the Thunderace sale.
The Thunderace is gone now, to a home it is going to be taken good care of and the owner loves it. The 954 in the last five days is making it seem like a good step forward. It was not my initial intent to buy a 954, but one good test ride, known past history, clean paperwork and a reasonable price had me sticking my tongue out.

A big, really big token of thanks to Anku & Straight6 for helping out, and reaching out to every contact they had to find me a bike. They rode with me through my changing moods and prefrences all those weeks, thanks guys.

I will miss the riding impressions for now, it is going to take a few more days to figure this one out, but I will leave you guys with a few pictures from last night at reclamation.

The 954 is fuel injected with Honda's stage 3 PGMFI tech, the Thunderace was a carb, and the missing 46cc is offset by 6 extra bhp.
Additionally, the 954 is even 30 kgs lighter than the Thunderace.
