My New Ride R1
Finaly, My New R1 (2003) has arrived in my hands. After a succesful ride of 600 F4i Sport i finally graduated to a liter bike. well lot of difference.
Before that i would like to tell YES this is a brand new 2003 zero KMS No dought. Picked up from a geniune source.
Well so far completed 175 KMs, amazing machine, Feels like you are the highlighted & fastest on the road. As currently it is going through the break-in period till 1K on odo i have not crossed the 6K RPM mark. Well the first thing i noticed about this is the missing steering damper. In high speed braking, one has to be more careful with the R1s without steering damper.
This machine has a very good acceleration and at the same time the braking is also very good.

Awesome machine. Congratulations (with a twinge of jealousy). Where did you source this machine from BTW? And yeah, for how much?

Good stuff man! Let us know how the riding goes. Though I'm still a bit unclear as to the "new" 2003 bike thing. Oh well, as long as the bike is good and you're happy, what does it matter.
