My new bike

Post by griz on Tue 03 Jun 2008, 18:03

Hi all, I did have a project 98 rrw but had a few problems with the rebuild & got fed up of waiting to get it back on the road so I broke it all down & sold off all the parts & this is what I bought with the proceeds!

It's a 94 RRR in pretty standard nick & in very good condition for the year I think.

I was trying to get hold of a 92 twin headlight but there wasn't much about so I settled with this one for the time being, this is my 5th firebalde, I do like um jumping

what do ya think of it?

Thanks!

Nah they were red & what you’re seeing is the lovely modern technology of the digital camera! The actual colour of the 'CBR' sticker is more red than orange it's just what colour the camera chose, don't ask me why No

Because in the chase for bigger pixel counts the camera makers are cutting back on both optical quality and image processing software, especially in budget makes and lesser known brands like Benq.

Anorak time.....
On the 1994 RRR the CBR logo was Red.
On the 1995 RRS the CBR logo was White.

Anorak moment over...

Nice looking ride by the way..
