That video = inside of every dealership if you ain't there when your bike shows up. Every sales guy and mechanic will be calling their buddies to come sit on it and rip the throttle to hear the BOV. We should have a pool to see whose bike is going to show up on FB being abused by an employee at their dealer first.

Turtle.. I have a '13 zx10r... And I love it! In fact I'm thinking of keeping it just because it corners like no other! If I hadn't bought the h2 I would be probably looking at a yamaha R1M...the smartphone pairing option is pretty bad ass!

Your not wrong there. It is expensive and there is going to be someone who needs to get out from under one its whether they live within a thousand miles from me:rolleyes:

It is incredible in the twisties. That's cool you were smart and not an idiot like me and bought the bike.. I think it's a really good second bike with the 10r. Mine has about 2k on it as I got it late summer. I haven't flashed mine yet and it's face meltingly fast to me, I stopped riding for 5 years and I use to have a 05 cbr 1000rr which had low end and handled good but the 10 fcoking destroys it. I mean eats it's lunch bad that's with no flash it's crazy that that was what liter bikes were, and still are for the other brands,lol Yamaha finally stepped up though for sure.. I am so satisfied with the bike and that's probly reason número uno why I'm h2less..
That smart phone pairing will allow you to analyze your ride right? It will let you compare laps on a track or street I think.. Not sure though so don't quote me. I'm pretty sure that's how bmw is. I remeber seeing it on you tube

Smartphone pairing? The last thing I'd want my bike to have is access to GPS and the phone number for the police. :D
:crying:

Correct.. You can analyze your ride... With a few modifications to the ecu and coding, the sky is the limit, the bike will be able to adjust to fuel weight, automatically adjust for corners with the gps(which is already on board, not via cell phone H2R) and it doesn't transmit receive only so no worries about the 5-0...lol)...as for the zx10r being one **** of a ride... Yeah it eats just about everything in the liter bike class for breakfast,lunch, and dinner! You won't find a better, lighter, liter bike out there! Like I said.. I'm keeping mine! I still have my '01 ninja 250(Though the engine is in pieces on my dining room table) it's a fun little bike to ride and gets great mileage... I took it on a 5 hour ride through upstate NY... Had a ball!

Your so right

That video = inside of every dealership if you ain't there when your bike shows up. Every sales guy and mechanic will be calling their buddies to come sit on it and rip the throttle to hear the BOV. We should have a pool to see whose bike is going to show up on FB being abused by an employee at their dealer first.
After hearing that fanfu%^&ingtastic sound you are more than likely right. I got my deposit down quickly and have the first bike allocated to Southern England guaranteed in writing. What you said makes perfect sense.....
Theres an old saying......."Just because your paranoid doesn't mean the bas*&^tds aren't out to get you."

Thought about this...you know...revving this bike like in those videos won't harm it a bit.It's built to rev...to run.The ONLY issue I would have is revving it immediately after starting it.Thankfully the tech at my dealer is an older guy...if anyone starts mine...he'll be the one.They can sit on it if they want...even rev it a bit...they just better not scratch it....the motor's already been redlined at the factory on the dyno...so it's not like it's never been started or revved.There's only two other mechanics there...they won't be doing anything stupid...

That's not really what I have a problem with - it's the disrespect. Would I leave the key in my bike at a random parking lot and be cool with dudes just firing it up and giving it a rev at their leisure? Obviously not for the same reason I don't want dudes touching my girlfriend, my food or my car - it's not theirs. You wanna eat, get laid or drive fast? Go get your own. Keep your hands and ass the **** off my bike.

I'm setup to be there when the bike arrives on the truck and observe during pre-delivery check. I called 10 dealers and got mine from the first one who promised they would not ride it for any reason. Supposedly it's being uncrated and assembled somewhere else by Kawi so I'm praying the guy putting together 40 of them will have his curiosity satisfied early on.

Yep...I get ya.Totally understand.I feel the same way really...I think I'll call my dealer and let him know I want to be there as well for the uncrating and all...would like to take some pics anyway...yours is a good idea.Think with this bike...I'll follow your lead.What I said was basically a trust thing between my dealer and me...but this bike IS a tad more 'important' than a showroom deal...I felt VERY bad when I went to get my 2013 zx14R.Going into the shop...him showing me that broken fairing.Was a big blow to my feelings about who did what...you know.Hard to believe it got damaged prior to getting there...but it might have.I'd rather see this one all the way from truck liftoff to opening up.Thanks for reminding me....the really ODD thing...the outside cardboard crate cover material wasn't damaged...not a scratch.Yet the belly fairing definitely had something run into it.And the metal railing that goes around the circumference on the bottom edge...it was bent in on the right side like a forklift tine had pushed it in.
