Took the Plunge....

Hey guys, so I finally decided to buy my own bike after riding several other friends spare bikes. In Jan '10 I bought an '07 CBR600rr, white/white wheels. I bought it used with about 10k miles on it and some light rash. I wasn't sure I'd really ride it that much and not just get bored so I didn't want to spend a lot of money or get a nice new bike and drop it in garage or at gas pump. Anyways...after enjoying the out of the bike for the last 6mos, I decided I was gonna fix it up and make it right....went up to Cycle Shack in Conroe to order a couple parts but they only had one in stock that I could bring home....Hope it Fits!!!



their sale, and my impulse buying....

Ur garage looks very cramped, I think you would be much happier with the space if u brought the cbr over to my garage. I charge nothing for storage, I just ask you leave the key in case I have to move it.
