San Antonio, Texas.

Taking delivery of my very first Honda this weekend.

2000 SP1 with less than 6k miles. Mostly stock, mild and usual mods. Stock suspension.

Hope to take it for a ride about Sunday.

Traded my 1993 Kawasaki ZX7R, "M" model. The WSB Homologation version with all the factory goodies.

This is also my first "modern" fuel injected bike. Every thing else I own and have owned is carbureted.

central Texas clan, meet me in Luchenbach after lunch on Sunday, weather permitting.

Was a Gee- Lorious day for a ride about the Texas hill country.

Bike was quite nice. I see no need for a power commander. There were no flat spots. Pulls very strong. It might make a little more Dyno power with one, but it seems fine at go to jail speeds today.

I used the sport rider settings page for a starting place. Then softened up the springs at both ends a little but at a time. Roads are generally not smooth here. Worked fine.

ZX 7R. Often called an "RR". But technically it's an "M" model.
