Default My new F4i, intro & pics

Hi everyone, it's great to meet you all!! I've been a member on this forum since yesterday and I'm already proud to be a part of the community. Firstly, this is not my first CBR, nor my first F4i. I stepped away from bikes two years ago after a bad head on with a Chrysler Pacifica, which totaled it and my 08 600rr.

I don't want to go too deep into an intro about me and my bikes (and my car, can't forget you Samantha!) I'll save that for the intro page. Just know that I've longed to be reunited with the road on two wheels.

Anyway, I'm back and this is my steed, an 01 f4i with 13k.

She's in great condition for the price, but going to need some work. I will be checking with a shop in the next few days but I believe the forks are bent, although they might just be tweaked. The right lower fairing is broken and the other the fairings are beat up a little here and there. She cranks and runs at least a decent state. I got a few extra goodies with it like k&n filter, frame sliders and an undertail, but we will see if I use those.

I just wanted to get my first post out there and say Hey! I will update as I know more about the condition of the bike, along with numerous questions for you guys I'm sure. Of course I will always search before I post.

Thanks for reading everyone and your input is always welcome and appreciated!

Holy cow. That's the best deal I've seen in a while. What kind of dirt did you have on him? lol

Well he's been my good friend for around 12 years so I have plenty of dirt lol. No, I offered more but he wouldn't have it. He's had it sitting in his basement for a year or two and just never fixed it. He's not even sure what all is broken. I know it's been in at least two low speed lowsides. He rode it to my house so it's at least "ride-able" but I personally am not going to ride it until I get more facts.

Anyone who lives in the Atlanta area is more than welcome to come have a beer and check it out!

Yea I like to think I have the best-worst luck anyone could ask for. This has been true for many years.

My body feels like it's 50 now but at least I have no cosmetic damage haha. Too bad they cut through all my favorite gear. It did it's job though.
