Are Gen 1's Still Alive?

I own a 2005 Gen 1, I’ve been absent from the Forum for a long time. My bike is in mint condition, 10,000 miles, Akra CF Hex exhaust, BST CF wheels, rear sets and numerous other mods. Looks brand new and runs perfect, still take for occasional blasts, but primarily ride my other bike.

I am curious how many other Gen 1’s are still out there being ridden actively? Is this bike disappearing from the world? Too old and obsolete? Would love to hear how many Gen 1 owners are still out there and riding it.

Just sold mine about two weeks ago but she was showroom clean and rode like a bat outta hell still.
How many miles did it have, and how much did you get for it?
My guess would be about 14,000 miles. It had been -1 in the front for a while so true mileage I'm not sure about but the speedo read about 14800. I sold it for $4800.00. I could have held out but lifes circumstances for me right are shall we say...changing. I hated to miss a sale for a couple hundred bucks.
An annual event here, “Biker’s Week”, like a mini Sturgis. Bikers come from all over Mexico to Cabo for this annual party. And the Gen1 was there! View attachment 452090
I was there Sunday for the races. Always a great time!
I think you’ve got the wrong bike week! This one’s in Cabo San Lucas
You are right! Lol.
