I'm going to seattle for an internship this summer, and was thinking of getting a bike. I was thinking of getting a bike down in seattle with our good canadian dollar and all.
however, i got a lemon last time i bought used, and i want to make sure the bike is tip top, from tire treads, to engine and electronics.
i need someone to look at the bike and give me a full report. so does anyone know of a trustworthy and reasonablly rated mechanic in the seattle area? One that i can preferably call over the phone to arrange the inspection with?
Also, if anyone knew of other places to get good deals on post-2000 bikes - preferably rr or r1/r6. other than craiglist and pnwriders.com.
lastly, why does washington not require insurnace for motorcycles??? (i know, i coudnt' believe it till i read the law). http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/insurance.html - click on the exception to mandatory insurance link
Thanks so much!
on a side note, does anyone have pros/cons about the 02 cbr600rr? My friend had an 06 and loved it. i read good reviews on it as well - the only probelm being wrists hurting on long rides.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
