2004 600RR and 2006 Fireblade

Hey all,

Picked up my new 2006 Blade yesterday - 3.3 miles on the clock when I bought it, now sitting in the garage with 260 miles on! Having had a Candy Blue 600RR for 2 years now it'll be interesting to see how the two compare. First observation was that the Blade is king of the motorway (freeway to you US guys!) and the 600 is preferable in town. That said, the blade has a wow factor like nothing else I've ever ridden.

I've done a LOT of riding on the 600 - it's just had it's 28000 mile service (bought it new in April 2004) and I am keeping them both on the road, so once I'm more familier with the blade I'll post some observations on having both. Will get a pic or two on tomorrow as well. They do look very snug together in the garage!

Anyways, keep the shiny side up and seey'all round

Cheers! I live near Brighton on the UK South Coast. It's been dry as a bone here for weeks and it pours with rain the day I have to ride the new bike 200 miles home from where I bought it.. hehe.

Will post pics later today - off for a family Easter thing in a bit so will clean the blade when I get back and snap away.
