If there's any CBR tour er' in here. lets see your bike, and hear a little about her.
here's my 05 cbr 600rr. Daily ride during the "riding season", also my tour bike. love her,
did a few track days with her during 12' summer.
bought the bike fairly new in Feb of 2011 with exactly 2900 miles stock, currently sitting shy to 35k miles.
Here's what i've done to her so far and some of my touring setup.

When she arrived in my hands (2011)
ending season of 2011 ;winter. she went into hard core surgery
shining bright for 2012
And this is how she currently sit.. lets see what 2013 has for her !!!
cheers!! happy riding everyone!
Beautiful bike, but with those super low bars and rearsets, you would have to be made out of steel to tour on that. I doubt our local Ironman triathlon champion could tour on that.
Clearly, the surgery was very successful. Cool pics.
Awesome refreshment of the bike, makes me think of getting one of these instead of a dual sport haha.
Got my 2007 back in Dec 2009
The idea was to have a dedicated track bike... But I only did 2 trackdays on it. Wrecked on the 2nd trackday and life has just gotten in the way since then. Terrific capable bike, WAY more capable than I am, I just never "clicked" with it. To this day I feel more confident, more comfortable riding my SV1000S hard than the CBR.
And I'm keeping my SV1000S as my track bike, must find a new home for the CBR.
But I can't get myself to do it. I've rode it less than 1,500 miles, and I'm perfectly aware that's not enough time to get to "bond" with a bike.
It was very, VERY, hard for me to bond with the SV1000S, which I got 1 year after the CBR.
It hasn't helped that the few times I've taken the CBR on the street "conditions" haven't been very good. Last time I got caught in a freaking storm and got a flat rear tire... Picture taken 30 minutes before the storm.
Slightly different setup, but granpa tours just fine two up as well. 3300km over 2 weeks and 99% camping. https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.n..._5632286_n.jpg
Tent strapped to the seat and everything else in the pack.
This year I purchased a 60 liter Overboard water proof duffel bag, I'll be using that this time. Sleeping bag,tent and all will be stored in there this time to keep it more secure & waterproof.
and here's the dinosaur i bought this winter....
much older than me myself. :rofl
Out for some fun in the snow ...
Taking it on it's first "real" trip this summer around lake Michigan. I've put a Corbin seat on it and will probably swap out the windscreen on it. I try to do a lot of the "photo tags" with it around Indiana in the summer.
F4i should be a bit more comfort .
I like turtles !
Your bike looks great by the way. I've been looking for quite a while for anyone that does the longer rides on a CBR. If you have any ride reports you've done...link me!
