What's up, CBR Nation? I'm new.
« on: February 03, 2005, 12:12:07 PM »
Greetings, fellow CBR600RR riders. I got sick of my buddies who ride R6's talking about their little discussion forums, so I'm joining up.
Here's the skinny:

2003, Black
Bought brand new in Sept. '04
Current mileage: 6010

Windscreen sprayed black to match fairing
All warning stickers, honda logos, etc. removed (CAREFULLY!)
One sticker added: factory 600RR with "600" removed, centered behind passenger seat
All factory turn signals replaced: flush mount smoke/black in front, mini stalk smoke/black in rear
Factory license plate holder/rear fender/huge eyesore removed, of course

I realize these mods are small and cosmetic, but put them all together and I've got one heluva good looking machine. And I love it when morons come up to me at gas stations. After staring for a few seconds, they invariably say, "It's really nice... what kind is it?"  Ha ha! Screw you, you freakin' sandal-wearing, SUV driving wannabe!

So, moving on, I live in Mississippi temporarily while I get my Master's degree in Computational Engineering... but a shout to my boys in my hometown, Pittsburgh, PA! Can't wait to get the bike up there and cut some serious city asphalt.

 ;) Welcome to the forum ;)

We're not as cool as the R6 guys, but welcome to the real riders :thumb:

You humored me by listing removing your safety stickers as a modification  :P You must show pictures so I can laugh at your slow ass black RR, you didn't know the limited edition yellow bike is the faster one? ???  :P

Welcome asswipe!  Hope you stick around long enough to enjoy the flaming your about to get.  There are a few PA riders in here, including my cousin, but he rides an R1.  Maybe y'all can hook up since he's new in town and needs some riding friends.  Oh yeah,  ;).  :embarrassed:

I just skimmed it, did he put a No Fear sticker on it?  We all know that adds something like 10 hp and almost makes up for it being black...


Oh and welcome ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Actually, I priced getting the lower fairing painted to match. it was ~$100. not much, if you have a job. forbidding if you don't. ???

If you expect the unexpected, doesn't that make the unexpected, the expected?
