I finally have a peter (bought a liter!)

I took the plunge and put myself massively in debt to buy a gorgeous example of a 2003 GSXR 1000.
Here's the pics and the mods;



OK, fixed the ghetto non-working thumbnails









On the pallet, ready for shipping by JC motors. I'll let you know how I like them when it arrives.

Stainless lines front and rear

Over $4500 worth of aftermarket parts
It's being shipped to me right now, should be here mid-next week. I'm HYPED!
Probably going to keep the SV as a commuter to and from college in Cincy.

Still struggling to find some sanely priced insurance, I need at least theft and basic damage protection in addition to liability, haven't found one for under 2 grand a year.

Also saving to get a reasonably priced, weather/theft protected mount for my valentine 1. Eventually I want to get a phazer laser jammer and mount it somewhere stealthy... for avoiding lap-time killing lasers on track days of course.

Nice bike

Now get it to the track before you really crack the taps and find out what it is capable of. It's much safer to find out that way than by suprise on a street somewhere!

Thanks for the compliments dudes.

I fixed the pics, have another look
I've looked at them several times a day for the last couple weeks. So sad.

Will State Farm insure you? If so, they will most likely be the cheapest.

Don't waste your money on the phazer laser jammer, they don't work.

As for the V1, having a radar detector is almost a sure way to get a ticket. I somehow got lucky one time and managed to only get a warning when I was going 20 over the speed limit. I had a radar detector and the cop told me it was my lucky day. He said that 99.9% of the time, if you're running a radar detector and going 20 over the limit, you WILL get a ticket.

Reason he gave me the warning? Not positive but I'm sure the fact that I was honest and pulled over immediately after seeing him turn around helped out alot. Also possible that he was a father, but I have no clue on that one. When asked why I was going that fast, I honestly told him that I was going to see my daughter (she was 3 months old at the time) and that I was also playing a new CD (it was rock). The combination of being hyped to see my daughter and the fast music got me pushing the peddle down farther than I should have.

My point to that story is that running a radar detector puts you at MORE risk of getting a ticket a lot of times. They figure that you're purposely breaking the speed limit and trying to avoid getting caught. I personally got rid of the radar detector and simply try not to speed nearly as much. Just a little info to get you thinking.

Have fun with that bike. It's very sharp. Hope all goes well and that you're careful with it.
