    After getting that bike first and riding it for 6 months, are you glad you did it or would you rather have bought a new gixer or 600rr?

    Just wondering what your thoughts on that... :hs:

    im glad i bought the FZR to learn on...its such a breeze to ride...there is nothing hard about it.

    and it has plenty of power..
    i'd MUCH rather drop $2000 as opposed to drop $7000

    man would i be pissed...

    now that i have DECENT knowledge of riding motorcycle..and feel i can get from point a to point b with no conflicts...i'd like to get on something more stylish and with the times..oh ya, and faster too

    the FZR isnt a slouch though..i have had it indicate 135 with lots more to go (on an airport runway)


    so, no..im glad i bought the FZR..should i have put SOO much work into it? probably not...but i dont regret it..and doing most of it myself im not only PROUD of it..but i learned 200x more about motorcycles than i knew before throwing my first leg over one

    Thanks for your reply... I hope people looking to get into riding do what you did instead of buying the latest/greatest.

    I am looking for something similiar as a starter bike, but I don't know about $2300 for an 11 year old bike. I'm sure all the mods are worth it, but not exactly what I'd need. Good luck selling it.

    give it to me for 2300 (including shipping) and I'd seriously consider.

    Check ForwardAir.com for shipping rates. They kick ass for shipping bikes.

    Depending on where you are shipping it to, it's usually between $400-$600 to ship a bike. ForwardAir provides the container. All you need to do is supply the tie-downs, a lock, and drain the gas tank. Fast service too!
