Possible new HP4 owner

I am a 15 year Fireblade owner! Went through 3 of them. Don't want or need to get rid of her, but the HP4 is calling me. First time switching brands after all these years. First time something came out that interested me enough!

Just not sure to go standard or comp. not crazy about all the CF. like the blue wheels, but that by itself is not enough to pay the extra $4k+. Will probably go standard! All the performance is in the standard. Zero performance benefit to go comp.

Going to be a long winter!!!!

Congrats boyo.

Do you know what dealership your going to get the regular HP4 from?

Either way your right... Its going to be a long winter. Can't wait for spring!!

Bragging about a bedazzled bike? I rather brag about the performance! Which is why I am going hp4 over s1k. The rest is bragging about your wallet, in my opinion. There are some that NEED to have the best, no matter what. Good for them if they want to blow the cash. More power to ya!!

Th cf is nice, but I really wanted the Hp levers and foot pegs...as well as those blue wheels.

That's one heck of a ride all the way to deals gap and back. I bet it was worth it when you got there.
