I picked up my 2003 Yamaha YZF-R1 today! After a long wait it was well worth it.
The bike was already lowered for me by the time I got there this afternoon. However I think I still need to tweek the suspension some. I got a lot of accessories with the bike (Yamaha R1 cover, solo cowl, original manual, tool kit, 2 original keys, Yamaha Sportline rear stand, and original rear fender)
The original manual was left outside one night in the rain so it's beat up pretty good, the guy offered to buy me a new one, but he said he would give me the Sportline rear stand for free if I wouldn't worry about it, so I agreed to that!
Of course I had problems at the DMV. My original plan was to get the bike tomorrow so the proof of insurance has tomorrow's date on it. I called to get the date changed for today however the insurance company said it will take 24 hours for that to happen, so I will have to register it tomorrow.
I have a few pics I snapped today. I didn't get too many because it was already dark by the time I got home. I haven't even unloaded the bike out of the truck yet, I'll do that tomorrow. I have not rode the bike yet. There was snow all over the ground where I picked up the bike and I didn't want to take a chance of anything happening. I will take it out for a spin tomorrow.
This $6500 cash paid for the R1
This is the first pic I took of the bike as soon as I got there to pick it up!
I pulled off the interstate so I can take a few pictures because it was going to be to dark by the time I got home.
Look at that mileage! That's awesome for a 3 year old bike!!!
These are the accessories I got with the bike.
More pics to come tomorrow.
