I said this was my first "own" bike... My older brother has 2 (03' R6 and 900rr ) so ive always had a bike to ride for years:finger :finger :rant I came on this board to learn more about the R1 ect ect... Also to find out whats a good price to pay for a used R1.... just because Kelly's blue book states one thing and a dealer states another doesnt mean thats what i should pay for a bike. Thats why i came over here to the "experts" to find out what they would pay...CrowMagnum said:Okay, I will bite.
If this is your first ever motorcycle you are a fool!!! You know it and everyone else here does too. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason or excuse to need to start out on one of these. Hopefully you do not add to the statistics of what are going to make the popo crack down harder on all of us, or become one of the many guys I have met that says "yeah I used to have a suzuki ninja CBR 1000... man that thing was fast till I wrecked it. you are just going to hurt yourself too"
Post the wrecked bike on here after you dump it. I could use a couple parts.
Buy mine for $5500. It got lots of goodies on it. Bike in CA.Izover4u said:I am looking for a used 98-99 R1... What kind i expect to pay for one of these? I am going to look at a 99 this weekend and they are asking 5800... Seems kinda high to me for a bike that is 5 yrs old...
