and nice cbr, that's definitely one of the cleanest i've seen. integrated turn signals look great.

edit: and nice cut job on the frame sliders. looks oem!
Thanks bro I bought it stock in 2005 and slowly adding the mods. Its got less than 5000 km on it! The sliders and signals were done at imperial motorcycles in burnaby, awesome crew there!

Your bike looks awesome, it's definitely a head turner especially in a sea of Hondas, yamahas and suzukis. I cant imagine how awesome it is to ride that in the track. If I decide to keep the bike, I'm thinking about stepping it up to a triumph Daytona 675r or a Ducati 848.

wow so you averaged less than 1000km a year? i bought mine brand new in july and i'm at 4500km already hahaha. i've only heard good things about the new 675R. it's pretty much race ready out the box. brembo calipers, ohlins forks and rear shock and diablo corsas. plus i think it's one of the best looking bikes you can get right now, rarer than the 848 as well.

Sadly yes, I've been going to school in Toronto so the bike has been rarely ridden. Im usually back for a couple weeks so that's all the action the bike gets. Looks like you enjoyed this riding season! (any specific roads you would recommend? Plenty of curves and no traffic)

I heard the same about the triumphs being track ready out the box so it's my likely choice. Honestly, i just think the Ducati looks dope but it's not worth the overall compromise. You're right about the triumphs being rare, I haven't seen that many on the street compared to the Ducs lined up at Starbucks downtown no disrespect I love Ducs

there are really no good roads in vancouver besides sea to sky highway. and with the new laws it's way too dangerous to be riding spiritedly, and there are always cops camping out on s2s during the weekend. for a while my friends and i did s2s at night and didn't come across any cops, but the only time where i could ride the bike hard without shitting my pants was when i went to the track. my friends and i are organizing a ride down to laguna seca next year to watch the motogp race. i think that's going to be the highlight of 2012 for me hahaha.

Yeah I know what you mean especially with the aerial coverage, it's impossible to fully open up the throttle. I've driven the sea to sky at night and you're right about cop presence.

One road I've tried was Sumas Mountain Road but in my car. Can't really go fast because it's residential but it was a nice ride with elevations.

Laguna Seca sounds amazing man, especially because riding down south is awesome!
