              It’s back to December 2003 for this week’s Throwback Thursday – to the launch of Honda’s CBR1000RR Fireblade. The trip started well – Club-class BA flights to Phoenix, Arizona, nice golf hotel, and an afternoon of shooting 5.56mm M249 SAW machine guns. Next day, things got even better at […]
