I have really been wanting to buy a good bike... I got my Class 6 last November after taking PRS. Got a beater starter bike (84 Honda interceptor) for 2 months, did not really have much fun with it because it broke down right after I purchased it. Got it running for a bit, then broke down again... I would always worry when I rode it so I never really fully enjoyed the freedom of riding. Sold the bike for $500 bucks, paid $800 for it.
My dilemma is, I cannot stop looking at the used ads... I really feel I need to buy a bike. Everyone in my circle is telling me do not do it because of the Danger, crappy Vancouver riding weather etc... I am worried that I may not have time to ride the thing as well, and I keep talking myself out of buying a good bike. Thing is I cannot get this feeling out of my system, I have gone on a few test rides just to get a taste of riding again.
my question is, if I got a good used bike (I am looking for a minty Honda F4i, Suzuki SV650 or maybe the 07 CBR 600) and rode it for a couple months, then worst case scenario needed to sell it (either this year or hold on to it and sell it next season) Would I lose that much money depending on the deal I get buying a bike ? I am willing to take a hit but I do not want to take a huge hit.
I got the gear etc... I just need a bike to ride lol
is it too late now ? should I just wait for next season ? or just say screw it, you only live once and get a bike asap.
PS is $6000 a good deal for a mint 2002 Honda f4i with 14,000K ? with service records ?
thanks again guys and gals
