there is a local shop selling a K5 gixxer 600 for a very reasonable price. i'm approved for the loan and can make payments ... fairly well. i won't be going out as much during the school year, plus doing 32 hours/week on top of studying, i should have extra cash for payments. full coverage insurance will be the same as my kat 600 (state farm goes by cc's). so i'm set there. thing is, one its winter here, and two i can't bend my knee enough for the break. i'm at roughly 90-100* flexion, still doing physical therapy, not sure when it will be 100%...BUT before my recent surgery, i was able to bend to 110*, and it seems thats the right angle for breaking. how long till then? most likely before summer comes with intense therapy. so... go for the deal, or wait for summer when prices might raise and looking for bikes will be "harder"?
