Hey guys just wanted to throw up an intro thread here. Some of you may recognize us from FST.org. We are certainly looking forward to the RS becoming available for purchase and will definitely be looking to pick one up. I will also be looking to get one for me personally as its the first car I've seen that makes me not think twice about getting rid of my bike...

Pic of bike getting replaced by RS...




Pic of our current shop car... Don't know if it will be getting replaced yet, or just getting a brand new baby brother... :cool:

Welcome to the site @EdgeAutosport.com good to have you over here as well! I hope you have a winter car. It would be hard to ride that all winter long in Denver :p
I have a 96 impreza OBS that is used for bad weather duty. Bike is stuck up in the front of the garage right now feeling neglected. I'll be keeping the impreza too for when I get the RS so I don't have to drive it when the roads are nasty...

Mine is stuck in the front of the garage too. Haven't been on it in 3 months. :(

I went back and forth on it for a bit before I landed on a sport bike. I just liked the looks and the more aggressive riding position. Since then I've found that I have more fun on the more upright bikes though. Smile/gallon factor is higher on bikes like the Ducati Monster and the FZ09. I haven't spent a whole lot of time on a cruiser though so no real experience there to compare...

I always wanted a sport bike back in the time period that I couldn't afford a toy. Once I was able to I ended up going with a cruiser so I can take the wife with me and she can be more comfortable. Now we just have to plan around little kids. lol. Either way it is a blast and I love the open air and riding the back roads I would never take otherwise.

Yes, instead of paint we went with the natural coating of brake dust instead. However, that is all changing this weekend when we finally put some wilwoods on.
That's a nice wrap color. Is that a matte gunmetal gray?
