Paid for my new bike today

I opted to let the dealer keep it in storage until April, but wow, this thing is sick as hell. The M4 shorty pipe sounds mean and the entire bike is in mint condition with 3300 miles.

This is my 3rd sport bike (4th, if you count the FZ, though I don't). I'm not in my 20s anymore. No big wheelies, no going 160mph on the freeway. I just love sport bikes; it's where I'm most comfortable as a rider. I feel good on them and I love the sound and power. Most of the riding this bike will get is commuting 10 miles to and from work.

Enjoy.  I sure hope that is 10 miles of twisty roads, otherwise, what a waste on an SS.   8-)  
 
Oh, and the FZ is a sport bike.  Just not an SS.

My R6 was also for commuting. I put 9,000+ miles on it the first year. Obviously, I'll be riding it whenever I can, lol.

Grats on the new bike buddy. Don't be a stranger.
 
Man, I'm itching and so close to upgrading to an FZ09... but I'm waiting until I can see and get on a XSR900.

That's funny, I just put an M4 on my R6. It sounds pretty damn good....although the FZ still sounds better.

O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me.
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause...till it come back to me.

I sat on an XSR900 at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show. It is a lot taller seat height than the FZ-09. I really want to ride one. I love the look of it.

Yeah I like the scheme.  The shade appears different in different lighting.  I was not that big a fan of it when I first got the bike, but it has really grown on me.

Not only is it a nice red but from where I'm sitting it looks like a custom red with what ... ghost flames? Looks like ghost flames to me. Nice paint for sure, whatever it is.

Yeah, it could be described as ghost flames with smoke on the black parts and a few skulls mixed in.  My girlfriend mocking called it the "Ghost Rider" bike when I first got it, but she has actually grown rather fond of it, too.

I'd thought about using my air-brush on my belly pan to make ghost flames with my Pasche VL but decided against it but here's a video of ghost flames, which is what that is and very cool looking.

That is a very nice custom job....mine are just stickers.
