For my 08 CBR1k, the Helibars and Zero Gravity Sport Touring Screen arrived yesterday.  I also have Spider grips and the Vortex rearsets already ordered.  The Vortex rearsets were the only ones I could confirm that would actually move the pegs down a bit.  Already have the Honda Energy installed, love it!

I don't see anything wrong with it. My wife did a SaddleSore 1000 on a stock ergo'ed 2000 R1 and routinely does 300+ mile days in the mountains on the bike......and her left leg is paralyzed from the knee down and has had a total hip replacement.

As for tires, just slap a sport-touring tire on there. Doesn't matter if it is a 50 or 55 series, as you probably won't notice the difference. Matter of fact, save yoruself some money and run a 180/55-17 on the rear, instead. My wife's R1 has a 6.0" rim on it and she's gone through about 18 180/55 rear tires without any ill effects. She actually went with that size after a buddy of ours told us he ran that size on his 2005 R1 racebike....with the 6.0" rim.

For tank range, my wife's R1 gets 140-160 miles before the idiot light comes on and the bike gets mid 40's mpg in the mountains and has broken 50 mpg while doing the SaddleSore 1000.  Wink

Not a Honda but my 06 GSXR 1000 is my touring bike. Lowered pegs 3/4 of an inch otherwise stock as far as comfort mods. Can't recommend Ventura system enough.  ......  http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o117/Hinterlan/IMG_0144.jpg

 My old '06 GSXR1000 was comfortable enough for me to tour on.  Did many a 400 mile day on her.  I have had an '05 R1, the '06 GSXR1K and now an '08 ZX10R and the GSXR was/is BY FAR the most comfortable liter bike of the bunch.  FWIW, the '06 GSXR1000 was the best Japanese liter bike ever made.  I do LOVE my ZX10R for it's pure evilness though.  The ZX10R is more twitchy (fun) than previous bikes I have ridden.  Currently in the process of getting Race Tech fork mods, spiegler brake lines, CRG levers and a Zero Gravity sport tourning screen for the Ninja.  Next I plan to get aftermarket rearsets that I can lower for the long rides.

I thought the ergos on the 1098/1198 were slightly more comfortable than the 08/09 CBR1000RR.  The GSXR1000 was -way- more comfortable.  Maybe it's just me.


I have a 2005 GSXR1000 with Heli bars, and lowered pegs (half inch down, and three quarter inch back).  No problem doing 400 mile days.  Any sport bike can be set up to be a tourer, with slight modifications.

I toured on an 04 CBR1000 for two years and it was great.  Replaced the seat with a seat by that all day guy, had convertibars on for full sport or touring adjustments, laminar lip screen and cortech soft bags.  I'm 56 and had the bike three years ago.  I could do 7-9 days tour but that was about it.

Since I did mostly canyons and occasional touring it was a nice compromise but two years was enough of that.  Had a ZX14 for three years and it's a better compromise for me now.  Not quite as sporty but more power everywhere except way up in the rev range, more comfortable and esp. for longer trips.  Not as fast in the canyons but I don't mind.

Touring on a sport bike can be done.  From another, several years back . . ..

Hello i just found this forum, very nice.  My friends and i do some pretty big runs on liter bikes.  I have an 04 cbr 1000 and the other guys i ride with are R1 fans.  They will see the light some day.  here is a good thread with some nice lugguage rack pictures.  

http://www.fireblades.org/forums/general-discussion/80195-touring-rack-for-cbr-1000-a.html

We are planning a 6 day 2300 mile run into northern cal at the end of july.  With a corbin saddle and Heli bars my 1k is good for at least 400 miles a day.

Here is a thread from our last cali run.  There are a lot of good pictures.

This is really great to see that there are others touring on their cbr1000rr or other sportbikes!

I made a write up on my setup a few years ago for my cbr1000rr. Others from all over the world posted information. One guy even custom built a trailer for his RR! It is sick... I just ordered the Givi Wingrack and hardbags for my RR. They should be here in a week or so. Then, I start the mount fabrication.

Here is the link. http://www.1000rr.net/forums/showthread.php?t=68031

Thank you to all those who posted info here.

the above opinion is simply that of an average middle aged hick with one too many brain injuries... or, don't take it too serious.

I realize that this is a pretty old, ok, really old topic. But, it's still pertinent.

I wanted something a bit lighter than my FJR and thought the CBR1000RR would make a good conversion experiment. I made my own mount using 3/16" aluminum. On that main mount, I have two adapters - one that I designed myself so I can mount my FJR bags and a mount from Shad which accepts the Shad 23 or Shad 36 hard bags.  I have Shad 23's but think they are too flimsy ;they are a decent backup if I sell my FJR. I had Shad 36's but they seemed way too big and made the bike far too wide.

With FJR bags:

Shad 36 :

Nice tight fit with the FJR bags. My tail bag will mount on top of the platform if I still carry it.
