keeping the 06. theres a 08 raven at a used bike shop ive had my eye on, if we ever agree on price its mine. then one will be a track only bike.

the cafe/bobber bikes really interest me. ive been wanting to build one for a few years now just havent found the right bike at the right price

This is what I really want for a daily driver and turn my R1 into track only but there is no way im going to find one in the XR1200x platform for a decent price since they dont make the x anymore...
