New bike debate

I can't decide which bike to get. My Mom has been hinting that for Christmas she's going to give me some money for a new bike.

So my choices are a new 2008 Triumph 675. Retail, ~9,000.

Or this; http://www.houston-imports.com/forum...d.php?t=422893

It's a 2001 Honda F4i. It's 1/2 the price of the Triumph, and I can stunt it. (eventually)

Anyways, the thing with the Honda is that it was stolen so the guy changed the key holes. And since it was stolen, in 2006 it was given a salvaged title. I don't know if this will make it hard for me to get insurance but if it's not a hassle I'd really rather have the F4i.

sorry I needed to rant about this, I've been thinking about it all weekend.

have you rode either of the bikes? The 675 handles alot better than the f4i IMO.


Besides, dont ya want the extra 75cc? I know you want it.

No, I have never rode either one. I've barely rode 600s. Only a 1000 a few times.

If I go F4i, free bike. If I go Triumph, I most likely have to pay 1/2. Which isn't bad at all, but still.
