3k miles is three months of riding here. My first thought is that you better have the extended warranty; check this dealer:

Contact - D & H CYCLE

call them to clear details.

Next thought is that my next super is going to be the cbr as its weight is what I'm close to being used to and I'm kinda 10r shy after two engine failures and now off the bike near six months even with warranty covering everything.

But, if you don't ride much, doesn't really matter what you do; do what you want.

Unless you're actually going to build it to race I don't understand the appeal of the RR over the regular model. Just my $0.02

Iím pretty much in the same mindset. But in the same thought process, why throw parts at something I donít plan on racing as well. I like the bling regardless of purpose.. I just like building things in general. Plus I do like the way the gen 5ís look over the gen 4.

Iím over it now. Iíll wait for the next generation 10R, or get tired of waiting and bite the bullet on the current R1. Kind of pissed that Kawasaki added an active suspension, and didnít bother updating the 7-8 year old gauge cluster. Maybe Iím expecting too much but after seeing the new fireblade, GSXR, panigale, R1 displays, I feel like my gen 4 is severely updated.... Iíve also acknowledged that I could have a bit of a complex as well hahahah

Comparing that and the HM dash now. Might be on the list as soon as I can source the ohlins forks. Couldnít find anything on a fuel gauge on the starlane, but the HM has one. I know itís trivial but i hate guessing how much Iíve got left if I forget to reset the trip meter.

F*ck it right? Full speed ahead to finish this bike off.
