Honda CBR900RR Fireblade
Owner: Paul Wright Owned for: 21 months So far: a few little upgrades What’s next: just enjoy it
This is my 2002 954 Honda Fireblade. I’ve had it for 21 months, it’s virtually standard, but I’ve fitted a Gilles gearshift support to protect the gearbox, replaced some bodywork fasteners with stainless, and I’ve changed the top stem nut to a Yoshimura one.
I’ve commuted on it, used it for rides out with my other half, and even shown it at Castle Howard classic show where it won best post-’90s bike. It’s only done 4000 miles, and the plan is to polish it over winter, and enjoy possibly the best Blade ever next year.
