I rode one at the bike show last year. It was a hoot to be sure.
I'm a pretty big guy (6'1" at 235) and a bit older than most of the youngsters on board. So at 51 years young the bike's ergos were a bit much for me. But as a second bike? Oh yeah - I'd be all over that in a heartbeat.
Smart choice...You will love the 10R. No one needs that kind of power...But it is not what you are riding it for...It is so nice and easy on the streets, so powerful when you need it, and it just feels good. That is the most important part.HD is sold, ZZR stays, the 650r is next to go in the paper 8)
Good points, and i really don't need it :smile:It's a pretty good deal but not a killer deal. I paid $8998 for my '06 last year at this time, so I would think you can find a leftover '07 around $9K now. An '06 that's been sitting an additional year should be more than $500 below that number I think, especially because the '08 actually brings a lot of new stuff to the table (traction control etc) whereas the '06 to '07 was the same bike.
