Talking Finally I am the proud owner F4 1000R 1+1

Hi to all,

Well this Wednesday I finally got my dream bike - wow. What can I say?? It is awsome!! I was toying with keeping the Rizla JR rep gixxer thou. Not now though! Finally got a decent ride on the MV, 100 mile round trip, and it flipping rained on me (well, more like a welsh monsoon - Brecon Beacons), and no, nothing went wrong in the wet (big grin) The fairing even kept most of the rain off my legs. I've read about how *old school* the ergonomics are - cobblers. It fits me like a glove, although at 5'7" I am on tippy toes. So during my revelation experience I thought, right thats it, the gixxer goes. I just love the skshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh when you apply the brakes.
Anyway, as you can tell I am one happy owner,

cheers to all,

Hoppy

I'm 5'7" too. I got some HD boots with 1" soles and they help tremendously, although i still cannot back up or turn well at a low speed. Not that you will have to worry much about slow. And who wants to go backwards?

Gixxers are ok, but youll enjoy when their owners walk over to oggle at your MV and realize "gee, I have a japanese clone that I see 10x a day." Trust me, you wont see yourself coming in the other direction like with gixxer or ninja.

Hi

I just love the skshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh when you apply the brakes.
Anyway, as you can tell I am one happy owner,


I was saing the same when mine arrived, once it began to loosen up it was more the noise of the induction and the exhaust at high revs on twisty back roads that put a smile on my face. Welcome and enjoy.
