Parts was the biggest thing and power. After I heard that I was like ok it is off my list...After what I put on my 636, I was happy I listened. The 650 was a good bike to...Not as good as the 636 but good nonetheless. $3k is a nice price though...I like how that bike looks.I don't know a lot about it yet, but he said 3 grand for it. I can check things like condition and such, but just wondered if anyone had any experience or first-hand knowledge of them that could tell me some things to look for.
Why did they steer you away from the 650?
HEHEHE bro you got the eye!!! Yes that is me on a 2008 10R at the show...I love the way that bike looks. I love my 2006 10R but the new one has some goodies. Before I got my 10R by the way, I was looking at the Triumph 675...Great bike and awesome reviews...No links and just no aftermarket parts killed it yet again for me and Triump. My co-worker has one of those Triumph cafe racers and loves it...However, I need stuff to make my bike look and feel better. It is not cheap to get an exotic....However if it were a 675 and he is taller I would say get it.From my Triumph experience...they are one expensive machine to own. Parts are incredibly expensive($20 for a f'n oil filter and $250 for it's first service) and there is barely any aftermarket parts out there...If you do get him the Triumph I hope you can do all of the maintenance, like I do after it's first service, becuase the dealers charge you an arm and leg...
BTW erv, what are you on? Is that the new 08 zx10r? If it is...man I can't wait to see that thing in 2 weeks!
