Hi everyone!
I guess, I am first from Slovenia here (Horst`s southern neighbour).
I just ordered my (white, with ABS) CB 1000 R beauty and my dealer said, bike will be available here in the middle of Jun, with 125 BHP. Well, I`m slightly hoping, it will be sooner...

Otherwise I am riding bikes more than 25 years, from first 50 ccm MX toys, to my last white and blue Suzuki 750 (allready sold to my friend). But, I guess, that?s too fast, too brutal for normal streets and until A1 Ring in Austria is closed, my nearest racing track is in Croatia (around 180 km away), so there is no need for racing replica anymore.

Matej.

Yes I think you are our first Slovenian member... and a very warm welcome to you from a slightly cold London!

I think we are all looking forward to seeing riders with their beautiful new bikes.... :respekt

Great English by the way.... (Horst too).... :clap (those that know me would say I can barely speak proper English, let alone write it) :lol

Hello Matej, :welcome to the site!

Dan is right, I can't wait to see some photos of people with their CBs soon. I'm still disappointed that it looks like the bike will be under powered compared to what I expected, but that doesn't mean I don't still think it looks awesome and I'm sure it will ride amazing too. Hope you get what you expect :thumbup

TNX for your replies, good wishes and commendations (it`s easy for me to write or speak grammatically clean English, because it`s not my first language, I am not using it daily and there is almost zero possibility to "infect" it with some dialect or slang).
I will surely post pictures of my beauty on the forum, as soon as I get the bike.

Horst, I`m living in Bled, the western part of Slovenia, so Pannoniaring is sadly too far away from my town, but thanks anyway. Let?s hope, Dietrich Mateschitz and guys from Spielberg find a common language as soon as bossible and take steps to open the A1 Ring again.

Finally at home!
I actually got it on saturday, however I didn?t have time to ride it until yesterday. I have to say, the bike is extraordinarily drivable and it?s easy to drop it on the knee, too.
In a couple of words, it?s a racer in clasical (StreetFight) suit, I must say!

Just great, I love it/him/her, whatever, hehehe.

Hahaha, it has to be, because one car, one bike, 4 bicycles and other unnecessary stuff fills a garage to the last inch.

Out of curiosity, what is that attached to the right hand fork between the two yokes?

Antnee, a licence that allows you to drive on highways here in Slovenia. Costs 55€ for full year.

No, no, that?s good!
Before that, our highways were almost empty (exept in the summertime - tourists), because we had to pay toll every hundred kilometres and everybody drove on the local roads instead. Now, 80% of all drivers bought that licence and winding local roads are empty for us bikers, hehehe!
