Ok, back on topic!
Another quick hijack.......I love My '04 CBR 1000rr even though it's becoming "old" technology. The sad thing is is the price of the Japanese bikes is skyrocketing while the Euro bikes are plateauing or dropping. For he price of a new Japanese sport bike you can get a BMW S1000RR, almost a Ducati 1198. The new Kawasaki ZX-10 is 15k! The new breed of 600cc sport bikes is pushing $12k.......that's more than My 1000 was new!
