Default Looking for 2nd Bike

Hey everyone. I posted another topic about the wreck I was in a couple weeks ago. Called: "I ate it today"

I found the bike I want to get. The 250 is not rideable right now and it's too expensive to drive the truck.

Here's the bike I wanna get. Any opinions are welcome.

2003 Suzuki GSXR-600

It's not spam.

Thanks

Shit yea get it! You put in time on the 250. Now reward yourself! As long as You know in your heart YOU can handle it get it. The local dealership has a 1st gen FZ1 that i want but me thinks im still not ready for that. Maybe in 2 more years.

Thanks. Yea I know what you mean about bein able to handle it.
I am gonna stick to 600. I had a gsxr 1000 I traded my. Car for earlier this year and I sold it. But I still wouldn't feel ready to ride it. The throttle on that 1000 was so touchy, I only rode it down the driveway while I had it. Haha.
I will admit I was big time intimidated by it! Haha

A 600cc sportsbike is the best second bike to get . Its the only thing that ever knocks the "owning a 600cc sportbike is going to amaze me so much I will grow a longer cock " problem out of new riders .

Not sure what the reason is for your truck being too expensive to drive, but keep in mind buying a motorcycle like that will make your insurance skyrocket most likely, even for minimal coverage. Something to consider if money is tight right now. Also, driving your truck and fixing your 250, considering the light damage to it, may be cheaper than buying another motorcycle (and then paying the higher insurance and registration fees).

Hey everyone, here's another bike I like. It has a BONDED title, is that bad ? Should I avoid that ?

'05 Kawasaki Ninja 636 zx6

Here's the other one, the title is clear on this one.

2004 Kawasaki Ninja 636

Thanks

Are you searching by if they have a light kit fitted ? Or is your state just riddled with poor taste ?

Haha

I really love that orange 636, I have wanted it since they came out in 03...I was in high school

The light kit is ok I guess, I want him to take that and the power commander off. But idk, he may have sold it yesterday.

I like the green one too, just not sure of the bonded title.

If you want to save money in the long run. Spend the money on a normal car that gets 30mpg.... You'll save more money then buying that bike. But if you really want to get it, ok. But you'll spend more money in the long run.

Can you explain how it cost more in the long run please?

I'm just wondering. I'm not trying to be rude, just curious.

Thanks
