    Thanks! I'm just a hobbyist. I went to a 2-year trade school for auto body, but taught myself a lot of fabrication skills in the years since. I'd like to find a way to make this profitable, but the family business (mushroom farm) keeps me very busy.

    Thanks. That term just makes me laugh; it's so utterly tumblr in every sense of the word. Ah well. Maybe they'll grow out of it, maybe not. Best part is you know for sure they ain't breeding.

    For that price, have your scam-sensors on high alert. Con artists have been getting more clever about disguising their posts lately.

    Ok, ok, yeah, I can see that. Usually, I'd be right there with you- I like to see the inner workings of things (those see-through computer cases are pretty cool) but for some reason, in this, I prefer a sleeker package. Probably has to do with the fact that it's intended for speed. Oh, but if you get frame sliders, you don't have to worry about replacing the fairings... err, at least it's less likely.

    How much is the bandit going for? Lol about the gixxer. That sounds like an abomination.

    Yeah, but I consider it rude when people ignore me, so I try my best to not do it to others (It happens anyway, sometimes, because I'm an airhead, so I wind up apologizing a bunch). And yeah, I'm the same way- if it's not a snarky one-liner, it usually becomes an epic essay that has many drafts, and sometimes gets thrown out in the end anyway, because I'm not satisfied with how it sounds.

    Anyway, yeah, I forgot you were looking for a streetfighter. What is it that appeals to you about that? They seem to me making a huge emergence in the market, and to me, it doesn't look as good as a fully faired sportbike. Maybe I'm crazy.

    "Right now a 1990 400 with 31K miles is the same price as a 2002 600 with 16K miles"

    ^That is pretty nuts. You make a lot of good points about the downsides of getting an older but smaller streetfighter, so if you're not willing to consider a different style, I guess it makes sense.

    Hey dude, sorry to hear things didn't work out. I don't know what all the repercussions of not being able to flat foot it would be, but I'm guessing you're right, and that your uncle's friend was just trying to get you to choose a smaller (engine) bike. I'm trying to think about the challenges posed by a taller bike, and I suppose that if you're parking, you just have to tilt the thing to the side pretty far while dismounting. Depending on how far you're leaning, I guess that could get iffy, but doesn't seem to be a big deal if you're careful, as you said. I was parking my ninja one time and dropped it while trying to navigate it through a sea of parked mopeds (I fucking hate those things). Picking it back up wasn't difficult, just embarrassing, and I was even deadlifting it, so I don't think you'll have an issue with weight.

    Sounds like you did a good job of inspecting before buying, and obviously made the right call. It can sometimes be hard to walk away when your heart is set on something. Funny that the rear brake pad was missing entirely... I hope this guy isn't actually riding this thing in that condition. And yeah, anything that is not mentioned up front in the ad is an immediate red flag.

    Not to be another naysayer, but all this talk about your friend's wariness towards 600cc engines has made me think maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea for you to start off a little smaller. There's no shame in starting with a 250- it's what I did, and even then, I managed to take a couple spills. There are a ton of things to get used to- switching gears, countersteering, having to be on constant alert for obstructions and other drivers, etc. Throwing another variable in there is asking for trouble. Is there a reason you don't want to start with a 250? Some of the 250 ninjas and CBRs look almost as nice as their bigger cousins.
