I had a wicked good time. We met a nice Ste Gen county mounty, Glen let a teen go for a ride on Super Black Betty, we scared the begeebers out of a blue hair lady in a Cadillac. Good times!

Glen or Danny, care to elaborate?
sounds exciting, lol.

btw guy's, what would you pay for a 2007 Ninja 650r, about 4,500 miles, great visual condition, no scratches, possible very well maintained... oh, and if you saw it at a car dealership?

what would a fair price be?

well tiger trade in value is 2750 and reatil is 4000. shoot him a price of 2500 cash and i would not go any hire than 3000, but i would take it for a test ride and take it to the closest kawasaki dealer to check it out to make shure every thing is up to speed. just a little 411 sappingtons next mounth is selling all of there motorcycles in stock at 1 dollar over invoice. so you may be better at buying a 2009 or a 2010 tiger.

thanks glen, I had already looked up blue book values :) but I still wasn't sure if that sounded ok. Glad for the info, because I was thinking about trying to get it for 3,800-4,000. Put two grand down, and finance the rest through them. (if they approved me).

EDIT: I know they always ask more than what its worth, but the dealers asking price for the '07 650r is $4950.

And I would love having a brand new bike, but, there is higher insurance (checking prices now) plus, I couldn't buying a new one from sappington's outright, don't have that kind of money. And I doubt I can get financed, at just under 19, no credit history, been at current job for only 9 months.

But I guess it wouldn't hurt to try and check it out. Next month, starting July 1st?

2007 Ninja 650r - $1050/year

2009 Ninja 650r - $1,400/year ( just under that a bit actually)

2010 Ninja 650r - $2,000/year

All of these are with the exact same coverage options through progressive. with a down payment, and 11 monthly payments.


the 2007 is just a tad over what I wanted my limit to be... don't want to pay over 1k/year.

Unless I can get much better rates, looks like the 09/10 are both out.

Check with State Farm. You may have to have your car insured with them also to get a motorcycle policy. At least that was the deal when I had them.

state farm is the lowest around on sport bikes. i checked with progresive her in cape and the guy told me he couldn't tuch state farm on sport bikes. cruisers he would be about 10 dollars a mounth more. state farm runs me 36 a mounth now i do have two cars,house,life insurens and i'm 30, but you should still check into it. plus go with a 500 deduct. yah it's higher, but it dosen't take much damage to get to 500 bucks.

State Farm could be a possibility, if I don't have to insure my car with them. Being almost 19 still, and attending college, I'm still living with my grandparents, and have my car insured through them. (2003 v6 Ford Mustang). MUCH cheaper through them, lol. If I were to put it in my name, I would probably spend more on the increase in the car, then if I just insure the bike with a different company.

gonna try and find some better rates then progressive. (currently insured with them now, $171 year.) liability.

Ok, good point on the deductible... those quotes were with 1,000. I was thinking along the lines if the bike gets totaled, I'll just see $500 less, and not spend as much yearly... but I'm hoping that doesn't happen, and if it isn't totaled... 500 is easier to come up with the 1,000.

When I talked to you last I was all about riding this coming weekend. As soon as I get home I find out that we have freinds staying with us this weekend and I have a family get together on Sat. As long as we're not doing anything on Sunday... I'd LOVE to be on the bike.

I know, you guys don't seem like fords. Lol... As stated before, I'm not really a ford person, just more f a car person, and mustangs happen to be my specialty. And favorite car under say 50 grand(new). Lol



The red one is mine, the yellow one belongs to the GF. :)


I just like the angle of this picture. (Notice the 2004 chevy z71 in the background! )


My Mustang parked in front of my work. Its the Distance learning center at the local college here, I'm the ITV technician.



^ Project mustang that I'm working on. 1997 body, I put in a 2004: engine, transmission, rear end, engine wiring, dash wiring, body wiring, dash, and front and rear seats.

Your new DB windscreen should help with the pollen count.
