Picked up my new black 1000s on wednesday. It's even more fun than i hoped for. Much faster than what i imagined. I've read it's hard to get a 1000's front wheel to come up. I've got to say not hard at all. Half throttle in 1st gear and it's up there. Best friend has a kawasaki mean streak and he thinks it's fast as hell. Other friend with honda vfr 800 thinks it's faster than his, but on paper it shouldn't be. What do you guys think? I'm having a ball !!!!
