I got an email from Dave Sonsky, editor for Super Streetbike magazine. They are looking for info from us who own 93-99 CBR900RR models. Send David the info he's requesting and maybe you'll be included in the forthcoming article.


Hey guys-

We're looking to get some CBR900RR (‘93-’98) owners in the mag and let you tell your (brief) story.

Basically we're doing a monthy review of a specific make/model, and this time around it's the CBR900RR.

We'd like to know how you ride, where, or any particular story you think is worth reading. If you don't have much to say, just fill in the chart and leave it at that! Then send us a decent pic of you and your bike—at the strip, trackday, street, cruising with the lady, sitting on it at a gas station...whatever.

fill this in along with anything else you'd like to say, and send it and a pic or two to:

I'll write something when I get home. I have tons of pics. And a great story of how I actually got the bike... :D

:pound unless they want the story of a beast that is being made beautiful again and how ones love for a blade is so strong that one is willing to spend more than the bike is prolly worth to beautify her then I can't contribute to this :(

hey guys-

thanks for the replies. deadline is about a week out—so by early next week would be ideal.

one other thing; camera phone and other low resolution pics don't really work for print because they come out so small...

or, to put it another way—the better quality the pic you send, the larger it'll appear!!!

thx

Big Kahuna
May 7th, 2008, 03:29 PM
Here's what I sent Dave:


Picture:

7347

Year: 1998 CBR900RR

Name: William R. Shockley

Age: 42

Miles done: 67,218

Mods: Pazzo Racing billet clutch and brake levers, Penske rear shock, CTSMoto custom cut rear rotor, Micron carbon fiber oval muffler, Galfer steel braided lines, Driven 520 (-1/+2) chain conversion, Vortex Racing billet aluminum gas cap, Black Robotics YellowBox speedo calibrator, Sargent CarbonFX front seat and matching "V-Cut" rear cover, Pyramid Plastics dark smoked windscreen, Mototeck yellow tachometer face, Geelong Carbon Craft carbon fibre tank pad, Oberon Engineering anodized billet bar ends, pegs, brake reservoirs and oil filler cap, Clear Alternatives clear LED tail light, Lockhart smoke flush mount IV signals, Tripage LED pegs and Knight Rider KITT third eye light, Ventura bike luggage system.

best upgrade: That’s tough to say.. I love to customize the look of the bike, you know to make it my own. The Penske rear shock really made a big difference by adding more adjustability and sprung better for my weight. The Pazzo adjustable levers really make a difference in my riding, allowing on the fly adjustments for my changing riding attitude. I’d have to say the best bang for the buck is the Driven 520 conversion, dropping one tooth up front and added two to the rear. This mod really wakes up the bike, making it a daemon in the canyons.

favorite aspect of bike: This thing is just fun to ride. Enough power to get you there fast, but not wicked enough to get you in trouble. The thing is bullet proof, only a few charging issues in the past decade of ownership. I use this bike for single and two up rides all the time. Cornering is smooth and always predictable. Even after acquiring two newer bikes, I keep this baby in the garage for those times when I want to really enjoy the ride and not have to worry about getting myself in too much trouble. This thing fits me like a glove and I can’t see any reason to get rid of this bike. I’m sure it will remain in my stable until I reach an age that I can no longer ride… whenever that might be. :)

not if the pics are super crappy low-resolution camera phone jobs. we can't use those simply because they won't print.

Just wrote a rough draft, and sent some pics I had to Dave. Sorry for the delay, but...

Jaime and Amanda just volunteered to pose in sexy outfits for a pic with my bike. :V

And Dave, I am a Graphic Designer by profession... And have a photo minor college background. Maybe a larger pic from a real Dig SLR if I can talk my friend Kirk from motoshooter.com into taking it... :CY

Kirk says he's in. So a professional high-res photo with proper lighting to boot! :V :V :V (If you can wait another night? I hope!!!) We're thinking of shooting a night shot near the Phoenix Zoo with a nice cactus backdrop... And infamous Arizona sunset!

Hey Dave, my photo shoot keeps getting pushed back. I sent you some older photos, but is there any possibility of switching my placeholder photo(s) out when I get the really nice ones, or don't bother? I am trying to set up a professional photo shoot with 2 gorgeous girls, but schedules keep conflicting...

Thanks either way, but I'd like to know if swapping a photo out is a possibility, and what the deadline is for that?

But really I went to the store after I figured out after this thread was posted and waited for a new SSB mag and when it came out all it had featured was the new R6 and the 600RR. So I figured it was just a popularity contest and figured screw the 900RR. I really hope some of you guys bikes make it into the mag cause that would be awsome!:V

Yeah, the 24th can't come soon enough!!! :V

As long as they print Rob's, I'm happy. Rob's writing style needs to be published.

Hey BK... Isn't Dave Sonsky the guy that used to stunt for some big group in CA and then went to England for a while and wrote/tested for Superbike mag? Or am I thinking of the wrong Dave?

I spent at least twenty minutes of my life writing that email. And a few more proofreading Jawhn's. That's a half hour I could have spent napping. Or watching the tv. I think I did this at night, so that's like a half hour of friends-with-benefits I wasn't partaking in, which means maybe I skipped the whole thing that night. And that just doesn't sit well with me! Let's do something!! I'm going to print my OWN pictures and story and stick them in every copy of whatever-this-magazine-is that is at Barnes & Noble/Borders/Whatever the store is with those things with paper and words.

I'd just guess that our oldass bikes weren't that big of a hit and they lacked room or some sort of packaging issue. Nothing personal. Whatever it was, it just didn't work out with what they had for this month. Maybe next month, or some time in the future. Or never at all. *Shrug* No biggie.

Funny thing about sport bikes and mods. Now tell me if I am off base. While you have some people who purchase brand new bikes (current year) and then spend X$$$ to completely redo the bike. More often then not its people like us who have older bikes then turn them into what we want them to be. Cheaper over all and most of the time just as fast if not faster.

I for one would love to see a mag who focused on some of the older bikes and provided a how to of the month.

Thanks for the sneak peek!:D I can't wait 'till it hits the stores.
Pretty awesome, that they dedicated 5 pages to the 900 RR.
Nice bikes, everyone!


Oh yeah, I'm Bobby Moore. Yes, I know the leathers are loud. I'm currently shopping for an all black set.

I flew in to NJ for the weekend and dropped by the Barnes and Nole and picked up two copies. One to read and one to put away.

There's leathers in that photo? Really? Wher... Oh, wait, now I see them.

Hard to see anything except the plaid hottie. :EG

At least they match the bike... Nothing wrong with that!

Well Bobby certainly made the rest of us look stupid. Why didn't I go out and hire a model to pose with me? :CONF

The three responses that immediately came to mind:

I *tried* to get a girl squad surrounding me, and it fell through. Flaky wimmen.
What about the girl you used to have in your avatar pic?
Because we're all so hardcore we wanted just us with the bike... :rolleyes: :D

Actually we were on a ride north, and stopped in at a place called bikini coffee company. It didn't take much talking to get her sitting on the back for pics. As a matter of fact the next time through, I got pics of one of the other girls with the bike who was on the show "Big Brother".

My wife has referred to the pic as "Bobby and Random Tramp" since we saw the sneak peek here. I told her next time we'll send one of her and I on the bike so it will be "Bobby and the Everyday Tramp";DOH

That's what they tell me:EG

Did anyone else notice the print under the 93-94? It says it had upside down forks:confused: I have boots on mine, but I'm pretty sure they are the old school fork setup. Guess I need to double check

Yeah, I saw that. Felt bad for whoever wrote that story, they didn't do all their homework. :rolleyes: None of the 900RRs came stock with USD forks. :( That began with the 929.

Not only does Bobby have brains (sending in his pic with random hottie) he has balls as well. Had I sent in a pic with a tramp on the back that was not my wife you guys would be doing a farewell ride at my funeral! You're the man!

i bought the mag and read it. seems a con-grats is in order looks like they posted every pic that was sent I am guessing. for me it was kewl cause i could see what was done to peeps bikes then see if it fits in my budget. LOL. I will say one thing i think they used RRzone to fill some space which is fine with me.
