    Which 1098S Tricolore to buy???

    Not that I am thinking about getting one, but which 2007 would you buy?

    Bike # 1 which is an ex-demo bike, has been crashed, has inaccurate mileage... and was ridden by a 300lb mechanic??

    OR

    Bike #2 that has 2,000 km's, Bostom signatures and is asking $11,000 less?

    Having a good year are you Tony? I guess downsizing has its merits. :-)

    anyone I can lean against
    Tony given your penchant for things Honda, I would think your next bike would be a Varadero. The special edition Duck at 19 grand is pretty tempting though.

    Tony: Jerry's looking to sell his 954 (it's broken in and everything) for pretty damn cheap.

    In case you want to get back into the Hondas that is

    Get the more expensive one. Then you have more bragging rights at starschmucks. It even has track experience, something 99% of Duc's can only dream of.
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
