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.

My mom still rides her 1st Gen. She's in her 60's but she's about to retire it lol. That's a pic from Daytona Beach bike week a few weeks ago.
We went on a poker run this past weekend too.

I'm hoping I can swindle my dad into the idea of letting me keep it since she is about to get something else.

Getting mine to the track next month, tinkering with the brake setup, time to finally upgrade to an RCS to support these calipers and figure out the bolt/spacer combo to get the coolers back on.

What's the little thing sticking off of the front fender?
Downforce spoilers.
Is this a downforce spoiler circled in red? Or are you referring to the "winglets"?
