I will keep you informed I picked it up privately

Brandons bike was nice, but I could never bring myself to buy a yellow bike. I really wanted a 999 and found a steal of a 999, only problem was that it was in yellow....so I went with the 1098 in the fastest colour available

That's funny cuz when I was looking for my 999 I avoided all the red ones. (; Yellow is a way sexier color, red is for gurlz. p;

Newest addition to the family, picking it up on the 25th. Only picture I have for
now.

How much did it set you back? In my area people are still trying to get top dollar for them. 1098s with 10-15k miles are normally advertised for $12k. Then I saw someone on craiglist selling a Panigale w/2500 miles from $14.5.

Canada's motorcycle prices for the most part are fucking insane, for a bike of this milage in this condition I'd be paying upwards of $ 12,000.

I'll be sure to do a review once the snow melts and Im able to take it out on the road....so in 3 very long months.

Yeah very true. I'm guessing for this specific bike the duty and bringing it back etc outweighed paying the shit ton of extra money.

Yeah 3 months. You better be counting the days.

Not a bad way to get back in the game! Congrats!

You start out motorcycling with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.


Some people are like slinkies; they're good for nothing but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

As much as i want to welcome you back, I just can't seem to get this feeling of jealously out of seeing you with that shiny bike. Congrats man.
