Sad Day

I'm sad to say that after 13 years I have to say goodbye to my Gen 1. I hope whoever buys her will treat her as I did and gets to enjoy the thrill of 160+ BHP, no traction control, wooden brakes, and twitchy throttle. I don't say that in a negative way but more so in a way that to me, defines why we ride. The visceral experience of riding on something that if not treated with respect will spit you off like Pedrosa every other weekend. Farewell you sexy beast!

I feel ya. I sold mine a few weeks back after owning her for 13 years. I felt like she went to a good home though. Still I miss her.

This is actually a very practical and useful statement for me! I've been toying with the idea of buying a project 1st gen since there's one in my area that needs some work but is cheap. Given what you just said, I suppose I wouldn't ride the 1st gen while owning my 2013 so why bother. You just saved me some cash Older Guy. Thanks!
