This bike is absolutely awesome. It'll do over 130km/h in first gear, and will wheelstand off the throttle at illegal speeds in second. The brakes are phenomenal (twin 330mm discs with twin 4-pot callipers on the front) and the handling is exactly what you'd expect out of a FireBlade – excellent. It'll do 300km/h, too; I never made it that far though, I only got to about 260-270 before I ran out of track, but it was still pulling like a train. I've run an firstname.lastname@example.org, with a lighter rider and a harder launch it will easily run in the tens. It's no Hayabusa, but I believe it's a better package.
Despite being bucketloads of fun on the track, it's also a great road bike – that is, after all, the main reason I bought it in the first place. I regularly ride it from Ipswich to Toowoomba, and get off feeling much the same as when I got on, just a bit colder from the chilly Toowoomba climate Most of the km's on the bike were on the highway, not in heavy city traffic. It is always garaged.
It's been serviced every 5,000km by Honda. I was absolutely meticulous with this – it never went over the 5,000km mark without a proper log book service. Possibly over the top, but you know that the bike is in perfect mechanical condition. It's recently had its 25,000km service (shim adjustment).
I love the bike and really wish I could keep it. I'm upgrading my car and can't afford to keep the bike as well, so I very reluctantly offer it for sale. Those who know me can no doubt vouch for how difficult a decision this was.
I'm in Ipswich/Brisbane on weekends and in Toowoomba during the week. If you're a serious buyer, I can be contacted on <removed>, or by email at <removed>. The nature of my work means that I'm sometimes out of mobile phone range, so if you can't get me just leave a message with your contact details and I'll get back to you. And in case you're wondering, no, that's not my bike in my avatar…
Edit: Can a mod move this to the 'bikes for sale' section? Had a brain fart...
