I've thought a out buying one but worried about Utah drivers. Nice purchase though, looks well taken care of and low miles for an 08.

Looks good. I've got a 2005 ZX-10r that I'm selling; they are scary fast. Be safe and defiantly wear your gear

Nice bike. I love those CBRs. I personally have an 08' ZX-10R. Is this your first bike? Check out www.UtahSBA.com . There's a bunch of group rides through the canyons every year and a good group of guys that will help you out and let you ride at your own pace but not leave you behind. GET GEAR! I can't stress that enough. Dress for the crash, not for the comfort. Although, if you can get both, then go for it. I fully recommend www.trackstar1.com . They are a local business up in West Haven. They'll hook you up with everything you need and provide a bunch of info. They can also tune your suspension for you for pretty cheap. P.S. You need to hook that bike up with a fender eliminator kit ASAP.

Love the lines of the new CBRs... Last year I bought an 87 CBR 600 only had 5k miles but was a hoopty, no plastics, no keys, not even an ignition switch. Took it to my buddy and we worked on it for about 3 months and turned it into a bad a streetfighter. She was loud and fast for a 600. Pretty bare bones, but that's how streetfighters are. If I would buy a bike now it would be a toss up between a CBR or one of those bare bones buels that they started making last year. Good luck with Utah drivers... Leathers and a helmet and keep your head on a swivel!!! It's not If you crash, it's when... Kinda gloomy but it's the truth.

never had the urge to get one of these, then my old supervisor broke two vertebrae in his upper back when he crashed his. Not for me, but I bet they are fun as hell.

There's a softball bat sticking out of your header! Even though it is huge, the two brothers systems sound the best imo.

I hope all is well for him, but from my understanding wasnt he going WOT and forgot about a corner? If thats the case, he simply should have not been doing WOT pulls.

I know I know. I had 2 Bro's on my ZX6r and it sounded great. Its not super loud to the point where your head wants to blow up, but still sounds good and looks even better

I think anything with a side pipe needs the small gp styled one these days!

Forgot to mention that you should take the BRC if you haven't already. Lots of info and good riding technique to be learned there. Also, on the USBA website I listed above, there's also classes you can take as a member of the USBA out at Miller Motorsports Park called an ART(Advanced Rider Training). The beginner classes go out on the go-cart track. Even though the cart track is kinda small, there's still more than enough room and it allows you to work on your technique without having to worry about hurting yourself with excessive speed. The instructors start off by leading and having you follow to show you the lines of the course, then later in the day they follow you and give you 1 on 1 instructions based off of what they saw you doing through the course. The way it works is 20 minutes on the track, 40 minutes in the classroom discussing technique. I did one last year and I had a blast. I'll be doing another this year before doing a Super ART. The Super ART actually takes place on the west course of the race track. I can't wait!

I agree, but the GP style systems get silly loud. Its something that is cool to look at, but sucks to have. My buddy had a GP style on his bike and after riding for a few min it would quickly give you a head ache as it would resonate like crazy. Looks yes, functionality off track...not so much.

^Kart Track is a ton of fun! We were getting our knees on the ground on a couple of the Kart corners.

He is correct though. Take some courses they are really enriching. Also if you are new to riding and going to be riding in big groups around town as I often see, remember to take it at your own pace and don't worry about what anyone thinks of you. I would say 99% of the accidents I have seen were caused by the noobs trying to keep up or pull ahead of everyone.

Anyways, not to sound like a dad, but I have seen too many people get hurt being stupid.

Also watch for cars and be smart. Assume no one sees you and always yield to cars with blinkers or at places you know people want to merge to. They will come over regardless.

Anyway, orange is a great CBR color. Always been one of my favorites. My 600RR was one of the best bikes I have ever had. My next bike still will be either a GS or s1000RR.

I guess I could see that. Girls prefer a bike with a resonating pipe under the seat anyway! Do I have to teach you the ways?!

I miss my Ducati 900 SS. Was a fun bike but I never rode it, a lot like my car. ~5k miles in almost 2 years.
