Nahhh, he was too firm on the price for the issues it had, so I walked... It looked like it had an oil leak, it had NO brake pads at all, and it had been laid down before, which he didn't mention in the ad. Don't mind a bike being laid down before, but it's common courtesy to mention that in the ad.
I bought an SV650 (naked) that's been wrecked (only paid $750, and it runs great), and I've been rebuilding it/stocking up parts to rebuild it.
It's mostly cosmetic stuff, but the forks do need replaced; I'll be doing that next week, I think.
The cosmetic stuff doesn't bother me... I bought a new (used) tank, but I'm gonna' leave the dented one on for a year so that I won't cry when I drop it.
It'll be my first bike, but I value my life and as such will take the MSF course and never ride without full gear. >.<
I know it's powerful, but I'm pretty careful... I have a feeling if I die it'll be because someone doesn't know which lane is theirs when coming around a corner on an interstate off-ramp, not because I decide to go 140 MPH and lose comtrol, or because I grab the throttle when hitting a pothole.
I mean... I AM trying to justify buying the bike I want, but I think I'm being fairly reasonable about it.
You know, until you realize the same argument I used above could be applied to a 'Busa or R1 or VMax or GSXR 1000 or whatever. >.<
Do you ride? What do you ride and how long have you been riding?
Just curious haha.
