Hey, My friend recently laid down his Honda CBR600F4i, It's a 2001 with 5000 miles, it's his first accident ever, alright? He's 18, been riding since he was my age(16). He was going to sell me the bike before this for $6000, now that he's wrecked it he's willing to give it to me as it for $4500, all it needs is a new mirror and turn signal, there's a few scratches on it and what not, but overall a really nice bike, I'd love to have it. The dilema is, if I tell my parents that he wrecked, they probably won't want me to get my M license or his bike. So, my thoughts are tell them that someone hit his bike and knocked it over, probably not a great story, but much better than, telling them he hit some gravel while slowing down and the bike wobbled and he lost control of it, laying it down at like 30mph. Since my friend laid it down, I wouldn't have a first bike that's super nice, so I figure I could use this in my defense, if they're afraid I'm going to make it un-nice...by laying it down or something similar. He's not hurt at all, but I'd really like to get his bike and my M license, so if you guys could give me your opinion on what I should do, and what possible alternatives there are to this situation, I'd be very appreciative. Also, if you give me ideas for other used bikes, I'm up for looking at anything until 1997, that's my cut off. My dad had a '97 GSXR 600, so I want something a little similar, like my friends CBR.
