Default New CBR rider!

My first bike was a 1979 Honda CB650. nice classic bike with fairly good pick up for my first bike, rode it for 8 years and had a truck turn left in front of me at about 50 mph, hit the truck like a brick wall. broke 7 bones, was in a wheel chair for 3 months and crutches for another 2 along with physical therapy after, once I got my settlement which was crap because the guy was broke AF and had no assets... I started shopping. "brush the dirt off and get back up" now to be honest if it was my fault I wouldnt ride again but that wreck would of happened to any rider. I wanted to remain in the Honda family so chose the CBR. would love to have a newer 1000RR but with cash limited I was able to scoop up a rebuilt 00` F4. runs great (already ready for more ) and was re painted, only has 7k miles on it. Thought I join a CBR family to see whats going on!
