I will take that over Honda's "cover everything up in plastic" theme they have going on with the CBRs now. The new CBRs IMO are the worst looking ones yet. I am sure they are nice, but man they are ugly.

IIRC the '98 model year had one of the best looking CBR 900s. That year they had the pearl yellow with almost no stickers on it. Man those things look badass.

Does it still have the brand new oily smell? It's weird when I tell people that new motorcycles have the "new" smell like a car and people look at me like I'm crazy. They don't think that motos, because not sitting in a cage, don't have the "new" smell, but they're wrong.

I know new helmets have a "new helmet smell". ;)

Unfortunately the new bike scent is fading away.

Hey cut me some slack! I don't even think it had much over 100 miles when that pic was taken. ;)


ETA: I'm becoming more and more comfortable with curves. I'm almost craving them now.

As said by Austin Powers; "That is one sexy beast!"

I grabbed a cycle mag for my flight to Chicago a few weeks ago and they did a test on the GSXR600/750, and well I was trying to keep my drool down to a minimum (I'll admit part of it was the hot redhead across the aisle from me with the total cleavage shirt and push up bra!)

Congrats on the new purchase! :supergrin:

Very nice, my friend just bought the yellow 750. I haven’t ridden it yet but cant wait. I actually like your black better though.

I just did my 600 mile oil change and still lovin it.

So far I've only removed the big warning stickers, did the fender eliminator kit, shogun crash kit, and a tank pad. Once I get a few more mods done, I'll have a few new pics done.

Removing the rear passenger foot pegs will really clean up the rear of the bike. It is only two Allen bolts per side so it should only take about 5 min to put them back on if you are going take a passenger. Also the front reflector on the forks I think just screws off. If you remove the reflector you will eventually want to replace the bolt that holds it on with a normal bolt. But you will see what I mean when you see it. Those two small things along with removing the warning stickers made a huge difference cosmetically on my friends 750.
