Pretty sure the first year R1, 1998, is collectible, especially the red and white one. So my 2000 is the last year of the first generation, with a few minor factory upgrades compared to it. She’s not exactly “original” anymore. But it’s still nice to have a vehicle I’m not upside down on, and it’s also nice to know that whatever it’s worth isn’t enough to keep me from riding the pee out of it whenever I feel the need. Right now, it’s still tough to tell what old bikes will be sought after and which will be just another Wiki page, but I like to think there’s an outside chance my R1 will outpace my 401k and I’ll be able to retire when I’m 112.
