600 to 1000

Im wanting to get outta my 600 and get something bigger. There is a honda 929 at this place just inside the beltway on the nbound feeder. Its a blue building. Forget the name of it. I do want to keep my 600 cuz we have a history. How can one get financing with fair credit? I could put 500 down. I saw this 929 and it is sweet!!! Its the yellow one(not my fav color) I could go with a gxsr1000 also but haven't come across a good deal. I like rare bikes too and this 929 is clean and low miles....any suggestions

i'm sure if they are a motorcycle dealer....they will have some type of financing there....if not, check with your local credit unions....or search online for vehicle financing. motorcycles are considered a recreational vehicle....so interest rates might be a little bit higher.

May I ask how many times you've "run out" of power on the 600? What benefits are you looking to gain from the liter bike that yours doesn't already offer?

(Not saying not to move up, I'm just hoping to provoke some deeper thought on the issue, including MUCH increased insurance rates)

Avoid no-name dealerships. That place on 45 is gonna get top dollar for an older bike, probably sold on consignment. A current 600 probably is not at all off on the older 929's in power to weight ratio, I'd verture to guess. If you're gonna upgrade the 6, get a newer liter bike. For now, save your money and keep learning to ride on the 6. Most folks here think the 600 should be plenty fast, unless your ego needs a literbike to stroke it. And why sell an F4i? Sweet bike, reliable, fun to ride. Certainly not for a 929.

Say the owners of the 1300cc Hyabooooosa!

929 is not "rare". While it's true that it was only produced for a couple of years, they made a shytload of them. Not to mention, the 954 is the same basic bike with minor changes...

I'll bet that by the time you end up paying all the interest and inflated asking price of the bike from that shop, you'll have been able to buy an '08 CBR1000RR!

I'd only stay with a seller that is reputable (like Motorcycles Unlimited) too.

I don't understand why people always say don't get a big bike, stay with a 600, etc. While 600's are nice and have plenty of power, some people want more power. Do all of you that say "don't get a 1000" drive 4 cylinder automobiles?

I don't get it either. I love my litre bike. I had a 750 before for about year & 1/2 and was ready to get the POWER. litre bikes wheelie with throttle. Went threw 3 clutches on the 750.

I find several of the statements / assumptions interesting / erroneous to say the least:

Quote:
"stay away from no name dealerships."
He said he didn't know the name, so you're ASSUMING a lot.

Are you saying stay away from independent dealerships?

If so, you're insulting a bunch of honest places in town.


Are you saying only go to big name dealerships?

If that's true, than you're sending him to a lot of places that WILL screw him.


There's good and bad of both kinds of places.

Your statement is misleading at best.


Quote:
And why sell an F4i? Sweet bike, reliable, fun to ride. Certainly not for a 929.
The 929s were lighter then the F4i's and had more power, so he will be stepping up.
They handle better and are better looking too IMO.

Depending on his riding experience, it may be a good move.

And IF it's a good deal, why not?

The 929 is infinitely more reliable than the same generation of GSXR1000's, and because it's a couple of years older, insurance will be less expensive.


Quote:
Most folks here think the 600 should be plenty fast, unless your ego needs a literbike to stroke it.
As was already pointed out, you own a Busa don't you?


As far as financing, check the fine print, don't be in such a hurry to buy a new bike that you overlook how much interest you're paying.

This holds true regardless of who you're dealing with.
I've seen guys with Kawasaki / Suzuki / Yamaha financing / cards that owed thousands more on their bike than what it was worth, even after paying on it several years.


Lastly, for me, liter sized superbikes are overkill nowadays.

However, Mark is correct.
If a 1000 is what you're looking for, by all means get one. Just be aware of your skill set, ride within your limits and be aware of other things like increased insurance rates.

If you find one from a private party and you'd like someone to do a visual inspection and test drive, bring it by and we'll do one free of charge.

Good luck.
