Bike(s):
94' zx7









Update to my story...

Ok.. so awhile back I bought a 94' zx7 from Ghostrider (a.k.a. Brandon) and was completely devistated when the bike threw a bearing the next day. Mind you i have 2 kids and a wife that i've been taking care of and finally got the money to afford a bike.
[/recap]

Now.. from that point on i didn't know what i was going to do because i did not have the money to replace the bike or motor. So I posted on here to find out if anyone had any thoughts on what to do or how i should proceed in matter. I recieved so much support from this site and from people i have never met that it made me feel so much better but the really moving thing was the honesty and out right good nature of Brandon himself.

Here's the update.

I recieved a pm from Todd (a.k.a. TLLovr) that my crank should be in today and that i should have my bike back sometime next week. When i found this out i thought to myself "... now comes the part where i find out that i'm going to have to eat a huge bullet on the costs". So i called Brandon to find out what my damages where going to be and low and behold he kept his end of the deal and actually went beyond that to make sure that Todd was taken care of too. Thank you people for all your support and THANK YOU BRANDON AND TODD!!! Those two are true "Gentlemen" and desreve to be thanked and recongnized by everyone for their hardwork and patience with this new rider.

If you see these two gents on the forums please say thanks to them for being true honest hardworking people!! If you need a bike... Brandon is the man to see. I can assure you he is who i will be sending anyone that needs a bike and will also be using him in the future for my next bike.

@ the proof positive comment. You have no idea. I try to do good things in life seeing how when i was younger i was a tyranical youngster and those things seem to come back to haunt me. Now i try to lead a good life and it seems that it's much harder and i never seem to get the breaks that i used to... but this must be a favor from who knew how much i've been wanting a bike and had a bigger and better plan for me. They are truely good people and they have 1000% respect from me.

thats great that your thoughts have swayed from bad to good, no matter how bad life may get for you, there is always someone worse off than you! Just keep your head at all times, is always there to take care of us.

Just keep a good clear mind with the bike.

Remember, this could be your second chance that he's given you, take head of the signs.


Good looking out guys!

Yes... i've thought of that. Dunno what might have happened for w/e reason had i had it but more than likely.. there was a reason for it. Trust me when i say that i "usually" try not to do anything stupid on motorcycles... as someone once told me when i first started riding....

"There are 2 types of riders in this world... one thats been down and one thats going down... which one are you?"

At the time i was the one going down and that is exactally what happened. Totalled a 2001 F4i600. I was going way to fast on a road that did a 85 degree Y and i needed to turn right but was going way to fast... so i slowed the bike down as much as possible and rode the shake-wagon until i got to a place i felt like i could dump it and did but the bike didn't slide... it bounced up and over me. That scared the out of me and was more than enough for me to gain huge respect for motocycles.

Im glad everything worked out. The day I bought my bike the head gasket came out and it started leaking oil. The man that sold it to me drove 3 hours to come help me fix it but we couldnt find a replacment gasket and he had to move to a different state the next day. He took me to drop my bike off at the shop and gave me $300. He knew that the cost of repair would only be about $100 but he just gave me $200 for my trouble.

It just goes to show there are some genuinely good people in this world. He could have avoided me like the plague and Brandon could have done the same but thank for these peoples generosity. I was thinking about buying an r6 from Brandon but I have since found a better deal.
