    Default Newbie - Amherstburg Canada

    Hello,
    My name is Adam - I'm 44 years old and a longtime sportbike rider. I have owned many Hondas but it was this past June when I took ownership of the best motorcycle I've ever owned! A 1997 Fireblade in a solid red/silver "RR" graphic scheme that I haven't seen anywhere else. I gotta tell you that I cannot believe this bike is 20 years old - I should have been riding one 20 years ago! This thing just does whatever I want it to do and I absolutely love it!
    I've ridden/owned more GSXR's than anything else but it is now I realize that Honda just takes it farther than the other brands in engineering and usability.

    Cheers for now - I'll get a picture up for you all

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    That looks extremely good. Can't say I've seen that colour scheme before.

    Took a while for you to get the pic posted, but thanks for carrying through.

    Looks like a pretty solid model! Iíve got a 97 fox eye too, fantastic bike! Iíve just upgraded the suspension swapped the front wheel to a 17Ē for better tyre choice and in the process of sourcing a decent regulator rectifier modification. They may be old bikes but they are so much nicer to look at!

    What did you use for suspension upgrade?

    I used YSS for the rear shock and Wurth springs for the front with fresh fluid etc.

    Have a bit of an ongoing post on another forum if you want a bit more detail.
