    Unhappy Say goodbye to f4racer

    Well it was just a matter of time..No I didn't total my bike.

    Its just that it has become too tight having 2 bikes and a car while I'm in school right now. Katie and i did a lot of talking this week and we decided that we could only afford to have one bike and a car.
    PROBLEM...who sells their bike?

    That led to more arguments. So..we decided to sell both of them and find something we can both ride and use as a 2-up bike on trips.
    We decided on a Silver 2002 ZX 6-R. Good price enough power and handling for me and light enough and manageable enough for her. Ya, ya..damn Kawis ..what the hell am I thinking
    But, its no big deal , once I'm working we will look at another bike again

    So if anyone is interested in Katie's bike (a sweet condition 96 Smokin Joe with 15k) I will post something probably tonight with pics.

    Oh, Katie and I are gonna do one last ride together on the CBRs sometime this week. Its gonna be hard only having one bike

    I guess I can't be f4racer anymore. Any ideas, or should I keep the moniker?

    Cheers

    Although the 6R is a sweet bike...... if you plan on riding 2-up lots, why would you settle for something less than a 750. I find my Gixxer is great for myself, and even good for a psgr at times, but for lots of hwy riding 2-up. Not sure a 600 will fulfill what you need! Just my .02
    LIKE SKYDIVING... without the wimpy parachute finish.

    I agree with DoC partly...although I think that a GSXR would be my LAST choice if I were waning to do much 2-up riding. But you may want something bigger than a 600....VFR800 maybe? But that might be busting your bidget a little bit. FYI, I've never had any problems going 2-up on my 6R...plenty of juice, and pretty comfortable.

    BTW, you've got the best avatar here F4racer. (fellow trans-fan present)

    How much are new 600's going for? Around $10-11k? You could get an FZ1 for that much. Not a 600 supersport, but still very confident in the twisties. Remember, that's an R1 engine in there!

    Did a lot of thinking and it basically came down to picking a bike that we could both ride. VFR is nice but not sporty enough for me and definitely too heavy for her. Also, we don't 2-up all the time so i still wanted a sport bike more than sport cruiser. Gixxer 750 would be sweet but I do a lot of highway riding and found the Gixxer to be hell on my wrists. Also the color. Ya, ya laugh but it would look funny having a blue or green bike with me having red helmet, gloves and jacket. So silver fits perfect and always me to keep my gear.

    I wish.
    Karl, do yourself a favor and buy a 2000-2001 GSXR 600 for less money than what the ZX6 would cost you. AND it's VERY comfortable for back seat passengers...

    Karl,
    It's good to hear you're ok!
    Good Luck in school dude. Though, I'm sure luck won't have much to do with it.
