I was cruising the local ads and found this

2001 HONDA CBR, F4I, 2k miles, adult ridden, showroom condition, $5,000 firm

Seems good to me, what do you guys think?

A little high for the year but it has low miles. If you have cash to throw at it see if he will move any. Now is the worst time to be looking for a bike. I bet he will get it from someone so he might not move.

why is the ft tire painted and the rear not? usually they'll paint in pairs. so why replaced w/ only 2000mi

Well that is bullshit. There are always some out there. I don't necesarly agree with Racer on all aspects of a beginner bike but I do agree if you have no experience dirt or otherwise that might not be the best choice. That was my first bike but I had countless hours of dirt experience with quads and bikes. I have never had a crash but know lots who have. If you operate other machines like a fuck-tard get something smaller.

he was actually pretty cool, he was the only dealer to advised the MSF that i've spoken too so far.. of course he wanted me to buy a brand new 5k 500cc bike though... not happening... i'll just keep an eye out for used ones.. Im goin to take MSF in sept, once i figure out what im going to be doing with college.

I think its a good deal. See if he will take 4800 cash or something. Never give them asking price if you dont have too :)

Milage is what is making that bike wanted thats for sure. If you got the money go for it

I would try to see if you can get that to $4.4-4.6k. Be a little wary of the tire replacement at 2,000 miles. Could have been a nail or something, but i would ask the dealer to try and find out what he can. Could have been an abusive rider, especially in the critical first 1000 miles of engine break-in.
