    Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

    Some say he only showers on even days of the week

    Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

    All we know is he's Hewie.

    Haven't ridden the 03. One is leading the state road race champs at the moment so can't be all bad The R1's are a good bike, not quite the pure balls out power of the gixxer but still fuggin quick. The R1 is very much a front end bike, nimble but good feel i reckon.

            Not the best for cruisin, but then we never buy a sportsbike to treck along the nullabour. They are comfortable for the usual sunday rides and that sort of thing, all the new bikes are aimed more for performance now though. Best to test ride a few of them and compare, I thought the GSX-R 600s were quite bulky compared to the Yamahas. What bike do you currently?? If you are on a 600 already I would go for the R1 but otherwise the R6 is still damn quick..... would handle better as well.

                The 02 and 03 are pretty much the same i think apart from the flame job. Haven't heard whether there will be a new model for next year but the current R1's are still very good. The injection is probably the most responsive available at the moment.... just another thing that came to mind.

                      from the rumors ive heard the 04 will be alot like the 03 with subtle changes ie 01-02, but hey thats just rumors.... could be mistaken
