Re: Went to the Yamaha/Kawasaki/Suzuki dealership

Has anyone else had an experience like mine where they had a bike they lliked in pictures and then saw it in person and were dissapointed? Not usually, but I have been disappointed many times after test riding that new bike that I thought that I must have. It saves me alot of $$$ though :mrgreen:

Wow! I just read the article. Is the price inflation unique to Ducatis, or are all bikes like that? Mostly just the Ducks. A lack of dealers up here lets them name the price. Like Sevelturous in his thread about the 599 Honda, he can pick one up for $7500 Canadian for a left over 2004. That can't b...

Are you sure it's cheaper? Have you factored in the exchange rate? They list around $17,500 up here and there are no used ones..... Seeing as our buck is sitting somewhere around $.82 U.S. it is a smokin deal. Transporting it and paying duty are the challenge but there is a Duck club down east that...

Beyond reason and common sense

DAMN. These bikes are so much cheaper south of the border that I'm tempted...... The Ducati Multistrada, you either love it or hate it. I'll take this one: :wink:

This is a slippery slope that we don't wanna start to slide. I'm a big fan of the proper gear but I have been caught where it is SO hot that I can't take it anymore and the safest thing for me to do is to remove my jacket and ride extra cautious. Somewhere along the way, personal judgement has to co...

For some silly reason, everytime I cross the 49th into the U.S.A., I hear Sammy Hagar's "Can't drive 55 in my head". EVERYTIME! Even though it's been years since 55 was the general rule, I guess that this kind of dates me as an almost geezer........There still seem to be lots of places where they en...

COntact the organizers of the track day near you and ask them if they have a time set aside for beginners. From what I've seen, being barely able to balance a bike is all you need to be qualified..... :wink:

All sillyness aside for a moment, I was thinking about this last night.... Yamaha already make a detuned version of the R6 engine (I believe it's used in the fazer). It's not short on power, but should still be a vast improvement to learn with.... Why not chuck it back in the R6, Sell it as a reaso...

Honestly Sev, they won't offer you anything for your bike like you need. You will do SO much better selling it yourself but you better get on it, as they won't have 2004s kicking around for very long.... I'd suggest throwing your bike in the paper for a week or two and see if you get lucky right away.

Ok, Jeff, I checked out Turple Bros for you. Honda CB600F4 (that's what the tag said, bike said 599) - ~$8200 you might also want to look at this one: Suzuki GS500K4 - $5200 for that difference in price, I would go with the GS, but that's just me.
