Thanks for your opinion Drew.
After years of not riding (road for a dozen years, 15+ years ago) I recently found a mint condition 96 CBR900RR with only 10k miles. Everything is stock except for the Micron full race exhaust. I replaced the stock shield with a taller double bubble, fresh fluids, new chain and tires.
Although I have only had it for less than 2 weeks it's an amazing bike. I get nothing but stares and compliments from about everyone that passes by. The tech that mounted my... (read more)

I was not a sportsbike fan and had never considered one before getting the 2000 model Blade - the 929cc first, fuel injected RRY.
Anyone who has read my other reviews here will know my path to Fireblade ownership has been unusual.
After becoming a little disillusioned with biking, two years ago I tried an AN400, interesting; CB450DX, bizarre Brazilian Dream; 18 months with a Suzuki B-King, awesome muscle bike which anyone can ride; and - as yet unwritten about (but see pics on Flickr Gaz1300)-... (read more)

Ok. The Honda CBR900 is my first big bike. She has had a few dings in her life time but she still looks awesome and at 17000 miles only just run in.( Mileage has been verified) I have had a few other bikes in my lifetime consisting of the babyblade (400RR), SV650S, GPZ 600, and a few other smaller bikes. I have been riding since 99.
As already mentioned I owned the baby blade about 5 years ago, and I could not get over her. Fantastic liitle bike and the next step up after the sv and the gpz... (read more)

Very easy to ride, pillion comfort very good (no complaint from wife). I rode 200 miles and no 'backside' pains! Double bubble improves even more. Done a couple of track days: excellent! Showed off it's race pedigree and was not disgraced! (read more)

Back in 2002 I decided to upgrade from a Kawasaki ZX-6R to a 900 and had always really liked the styling of the Honda CBR900RRY. This is the fuel injected version with 929cc and the single headlight with upturned edges.
I particularly liked the dark blue/silver variant and came across one in a dealership in Dorset. I part ex'd the ZX6 and got the Fireblade for £5,200 with under 10k on the clock.
The styling of this bike is spot on. It weighs exactly the same at the 600's at around 170Kg... (read more)

I have been riding bikes since I was 17 and I am now 28 years old. I have owned a number of bikes over the years (all sports bike) and the Honda CBR900RR has to be my best yet. I bought it because I dreamd of having one as a kid and when I jumped on it for the first time I was not disappointed. The bike is the 918cc model in black with silver and grey decals and when I go out it turns a lot of heads. The bike is totaly standard apart from an aftermarket end can. The Fireblade is a great all... (read more)

I hadn't ridden since selling my busa 25 months earlier and that meant losing all my max no claims bonus. I went to buy a new GSXr 1000 but the £1700 (fully comp) insurance quote (£129 tpft on the busa) stopped that so the used Honda CBR900RR with £529 insurance was the next option. after the busa anything would be light but the 929cc blade was extremely flickable and having tried the early blades and finding the front pant-stainingly scary (I had a gpz 900r another 16" front that gave me...

Having had big bikes previously, I felt my age was going against me, so I came down to the 2000 Blade. Apprehensive about the fuel injection over carbs, what a fool I was. The reliability, handling and performance of this bike was awesome. I rode my bike all weathers and had no problems at all. Completed 56,000 miles in 2 years and did not have a sore behind once. After setting the bike to my weight, it cornered as though on rails. Dropped bike on ice and purchased another 10 days later. (read more)

I bought a 95 Urban Tiger Fireblade two weeks ago. I had thought about it for a long time and can remember having the poster up on my wall as a kid. Due to a serious case of bad judgement with the giggle juice I lost my licence for a time and then marriage and children upset my plans. Now back fully legal (and 10 years wiser) and with the money to do bikes as a hobby I decided to take the plunge. I searched all the ads in MCN and bike trader and finally saw the bike of my dreams. It was a 95... (read more)

I have a 1994 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade sports bike in Urban Street Tiger paintwork (Champagne gold, brown and orange). Ever since I bought this bike 5 years ago I have loved it. For the last 4 years I have lived in Saudi and only ride it when I get home for holidays. As long as the battery is kept on a charger it has started without any problems. It's difficult to find a low mileage early one obviously, but if you're looking for a Fireblade with a more radical riding position and fierce... (read more)

The Honda CBR900RR sports bike is an awesome thing to ride from a point of view that it is a comfy all round performer whether its blasting round country roads or two up touring with the mrs, my biggest gripe though has to be the insurance group - there are much faster and more powerful choices for less insurance, but otherwise i love the power torque handling looks and driveability, the bike is a flagship model for those reasons and also forgiving for a novice, the brakes could be a bit...
