Brothers' Update On 2013 Repsol.

Hello, Guys.
My brother got the 2013 Repsol yesterday from Stubbs SouthWest in Houston, Texas. It's the same dealership where I got my RC in April 2002.
The local Harley dealership there in the same area did not have enough riders signing on for an Advanced Rider course, so they cancelled it (!).
I've emphasized a track school (Yamaha School of Champions in Vegas with Nick Ienatsch, whom I personally think is a great instructor).
The rest is up to him. He realizes that right now he's more of an operator of a bike, rather than a true rider.
Take Care.

Ride Safe & Friendly.
Regards,
Dr. Rahi.

Great looking bike! Did he go with the 1000RR or the 600RR? It is hard to tell by the pic.

Make sure he is careful and takes it slow for a while.

CBR Capacity.

Thanks, Kram.
It's a liter bike.
And I can't wait to ride it next month, when I'll be in Houston.
Yipeeeee eeee ee e !
Take Care.
P.S. He knows to go to the track for instruction. I recommend the Yamaha School of Champions in Vegas. Nick Ienatsch is one of the instructors & my personal favorite.

Ride Safe & Friendly.

Please give us your opinions on the bike once you take it for a ride. The 2012+ CBR1000RR is one of the few bikes I would get to replace my RC51. I absolutely love the White/Blue/Red color scheme on the new 2013.

No problem, Kram.
It'll be my pleasure. And I'll post pics.
It should handle quite differently from my RC.
Take Care.
P.S. I would humbly request you to NEVER sell your RC. You may live to regret it.

Ride Safe & Friendly.

Dr. Rahi.

Take Care.

I would certainly flog the hell out of that, but not at the cost of selling my RC.

I just took my buddies new to him '06 GSXR1000 for a rip yesterday, crazy top end rush but lacking the connection I have to my RC...sewing machine comes to mind and it's not a Honda. Brutally fast though.
