Having a bike enthusiast for a family means you will see different bikes being parked in your garage everyday. This R1 was my uncle's bike, my brother and cousins brought it to our garage for some tune up before a bike parade.
We categorized big bikes into two types, the harley types and the ninja types. It has something to so with their form based on which brand is the most popular. The Harley types are those that basically look like a Harley, the muscled bike so to say with black as the usual color and has those big loud engine sound. The Ninja types are those bikes that are more popularly Japan made sports bike, sleek bikes being used for Bike Racing, R1 is a ninja type bike. They say higher the pitch of the engine sound the faster it will run. These type of bikes range in different color, the lighter the color the better and the shinier as well.
R1 Bikes have actually undergone a lot of phases, kinda like the toyota 4runner for the SUVs. I guess this bike will never get out or fashion, a lot of bike enthusiast would want to own a R1.

My brother used to own a ninja type bike but he sold it to our neighbor. I cannot really recall how many bikes have been with our family, I have been back riding since I was 7 years old.
