my friend just picked up his new bike that he has been waiting for for months.
here is the email message and pic i received from him:

"I'm now the proud father Of 382 Pound baby! My new
yamaha showed up. I'm so happy I just thought I would
share this moment with you all!! Chris"

i think it is a sweet looking bike for the rocket enthusiast :)
he put 10.7 miles on it on saturday before it snowed on sunday up here in MN.

When I went to go pick up my EX250 a couple weeks ago, the dealership had just got in a supply of new Yamaha's, just one of which was the new R1. I was there as they were unloading it from the truck. The bike never even made it into the showroom-- some guy out in the parking lot bought it right on the spot. It had already been assembled by a neighboring dealership, but it had never been ridden or in a showroom.

These things are selling quick. And with good reason-- it's one of the best looking sportbikes ever produced, especially in that silver.

No Fair!!!!! That's the exact bike I want!!!!! You can't put pictures of bikes like that on here and tease us like that! I've been drooling over that bike on the web site for a couple of months now, but it's just not right to see it in front of someone elses house like that! That's it. I'm riding hubbies FZ1 to work tomorrow.

Hopefully it doesn't turn into the "Yuppie Bike". I believe the current Yuppie Bike around here has to be Honda CBR929 especially the yellow one. Can't ride an hour without seeing at least one.

Seen in person

The 2002 R1 is the sweetest looking Rocket there is. I saw them (Silver, Blue & Red) in person as they were rolling them off the truck at my local dealership. The come standard with a Titanium pipe and LED Brake light (looks soooo sweet). I got to sit on it and it's just to much of a rocket to be comfortable for long rides or commuting . . I wouldn't mind taking it to the track though ;)

After sitting on it I was happy to hope back on my FZ-1 :~
