Good to hear you're OK and there's nothing mechanical wrong with the bike. As long as...

It's a proven engine if nothing else. Take care of it and I see no reason why it won't turn over 100k miles. With the CBR on feully, I was on the high end of average, so I should see around 55-60...

Nice looking bike! That red/black combo has to be one of the more, um, subtle colorings I've seen them in. It looks slick without being obnoxious. :)

Personal preference really. I had issues with my groin area on the stock seat, so I went with one of Saddlemen's gel-channel track CF seats. Groin pain is gone, but the seat can give some numb...

Shoulda just been like "Uh, yeah dude, I actually am gay". I bet his piehole would've puckered and he'd be dumbfounded on how to reply to that. ;)

I'd love to have a digital tach and speedometer display like that in my visor, but that's about it.

I have 3 pairs of leather gloves. 2 of them stick to the grips pretty well, the 3rd is constantly letting the throttle slowly close. So, maybe you just need some new gloves? 2 out of my 3 aren't...

Maybe it's the bigger, wider bars that makes it feel like it turns in better? The greater leverage should reduce the amount of pressure needed for that. Whatever bike I end up on next, I want...

I think he was saying to break on the front hard to lower the bike's mass closer to the ground in hopes of a trigger.

If you're just looking for clip-ons, I think Woodcraft might make those. Should be able to find a thread here about shorter bars somewhere.
