I finally got what I've been wanting for the last 10 years. My first bike. Every year I say I'm getting one, but this was finally the time.

The bike:

2001 Honda CBR F4i
White/Red
Fuel-injected 600cc engine

Sorry for the dirty garage, but here are a couple of pics:

Isn't Hurricane also the name of an obscure and potent 40?

off topic but Hurricane IS a maly liquor.... it is available in 40 ounce bottles and is potent.... for a more potent experience try the new Hurricane Hi Gravity.... 8.3 percent alcohol.... just dont drink a hurricane while you are driving your hurricane or you are going to get blown over...

Don't you have a newborn baby? Yikes, be very careful and watch out for idiots, they're everywhere. Your wife must be a very special lady to let you get a sportbike after becoming a new dad, most guys' sportbike days end at that point :)

Bikes are great. Congrats. Self control is the name of the game. Other drivers don't play as big a role in motorbike deaths than people think and speed is a factor is a HUGE amount of bike related collisions. Self control is where its at.

Regarding the Hurricane, i believe E-40 had a song about it form the mid nineties. If you think 8.3 is potent, you should try an swesome beer from Unibroue called Terrible. That stuff is 10.5% and quite stout. I love it. Maybe you can only get it in the Northeast though.

Back to the topic, I just realized that you said this is your first bike. Be careful man, especially since you haave a family. If you die, its no biggie to you, but think of what would happen to the fam. A modern 600cc sportbike will do 100+ in second gear. I say go buy a small used 250 and beat that up before you get on your new baby, but if you do exercise a lot of self control you'll be okay. Oh, and I'm sure I've said this somewhere on here before, but go take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course. They'll teach you quite a bit that you otherwise wouldn't learn. There are a couple of good book s I can recommend once you've been riding for a bout a year or two and want to learn some more skilled/aggressive technique.

Good luck!

That garage looks like it belongs on the speed channel.

Nice bike Tom! I love the CBRs... none of them will ever compare to the Hurricane...
Hey, Hey thats my bike! I had a 89 Hurricane 600 it was the black red and grey version, when I lived in Hawaii. I miss that bike. :(

You got that right. I'm a VERY responsible rider. I have a ton of high-end gear that I bought before I ever bought the bike. I took the MSF course, got my license, etc. I'm very aware of what could happen. Every time I ride, I expect that I'll go down. Just because it's a sport bike doesn't mean I'll ride it like a moron. People have a misconception that the type of bike is a major factor in safety. That's completely not true. The rider, and the gear they wear have the biggest impact. And training, experience, and a level head.

Oh, and if you guys saw the REST of my garage, you'd see that it's a complete wreck. It looks like about 3 CRX's exploded in it. An open transmission on the floor, a blown engine, a good engine, and misc crap laying around. Thanks for the comments though.
