i love the sound of a crotchrocket, but dislike the plastic look. i prefer used (depriaciation is my friend) but im having a hard time finding small nakid bikes.
i have found a 919 for 7k. similar to the costs of a 599.
do any of you have experience with the buell blast?
or how do the GS500, Blast, SV650, 599, 919, FZ6 ... compare?
Im torn. Theyre not "sport bikes" ala "crotch rockets" but i know theyre plenty quick. I am going to go to the school (vtwin riding school) to learn properly. Ive ridden snowmobiles for a long time now. i want to use this bike for daily use this summer. i will likely go on a road trip or 2 so i need something thats going to be able to survive the coquihalla.
