THIS ISN'T FAIR!

I want another bike.... NOW!! My friend "dirtyrice" is getting his bike today, and it isn't fair! I need ya'll advice...

Ok so here's the deal... I can either save up and get a brand new GSX-R600 OR my dad is willing to give me his '01 Ninja 500 (he'll fix it up for me) and I'd just give him payments and pay my own insurance.

I don't know what to do... I've had my little heart set on a GSX-R600... However, getting the Ninja would mean I'd get a bike a lot faster... and with gas prices, that'd probably more of a logical idea, because my Plastic P.O.S. is a gas guzzling @$$hole!

What would you people do?

I would take the 500 use it, abuse it, and sell it later when you save up some for the 600! That is my .02 on that matter.

Two wheels is two wheels.

As much as I would say wait, I think I like ridin' more than aesthetics so I'd say take your pops' bike n save a lil somethin on the side for the Gixx.... Plus, why get a large payment, learn to ride on the crunchy bike, get the experience, buy a new one (this is given you don't already know how to ride), be happy :icon_bigg

I would wait and get that GIXXER. If you get the 500 now you'll have some regrets later on.

What exactly is there to regret about riding any bike?
